Nintendo Plans To Enrich The Wii U GamePad’s Value

Nintendo has revealed that it wants to enrich the value of the Wii U GamePad through a variety of methods. The company plans to offer games that take full advantage of the 6.2-inch touch-screen controller. It also wants to make full use of the controller’s NFC function by preparing multiple schemes, including the implementation of NFC payments. Nintendo DS software, which will eventually be added to the Wii U Virtual Console lineup, will be playable on the Wii U GamePad.

      1. DKC Tropical Freeze was confirmed to display nothing (at least for now).https://mynintendonews.com/2014/01/29/wii-u-gamepad-displays-nothing-in-donkey-kong-country-tropical-freeze/
        So Nintendo saying they want to enrich the Gamepad yet, DKC displays nothing, is ironic. They should implement some microphone features, mostly just for online-game-chats….cuz that Mic is just a sitting duck. The game pads sound might get in the way so as long as you have headphones in, online-game-chats will activate.
        MK8 AND SMASH BROS ONLINE CHAT PLEASE!!!
        If it doesn’t We will have to wait another decade for such a simple feature to be implemented. (Since Nin is so sensitive towards kids there should be some sort of mod, behavior card or report options)

    1. Your very pessimistic aren’t you? Your complete lack of faith shows more than enough that you aren’t even a fan. Terms like “nintenbabies” is overused can’t you think up something on your own?

      1. What’s up with you and telling people they aren’t Nintendo fans? Isn’t this like the third time now? A Nintendo fan would be somebody who likes Nintendo games, characters, and franchises, that’s it.

      2. Just because you’re a fan of a company or corporation doesn’t mean you have to like or praise everything they come out with, how do you know he doesn’t like the 3DS? It’s not uncommon for a fan to bash or hate their companies products. Not all ifans love everything Apple shits out, and alot of Sony fans don’t really care for the Vita at all.

      3. Of course and I understand that. But he doesn’t sound like he even likes Nintendo in the first place. I don’t know too many Nintendo fans calling other Nintendo fans babies. You’re standing up for a troll.

      5. I agree, but the only people I say it to sound like they hate Nintendo to begin with. Plus they seem to be able to produce their own food. They don’t need to be fed to keep posting on here.

  3. Shouldn’t they have planned this BEFORE they launched the damn console? Fuck. Miyamoto’s design of the Wii was specifically made to cater to how he wanted games that he had planned to be made. I mean it’s pretty obvious the Wiimote was designed with Zelda in mind and it was a dream to play for Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, Punch Out!!, and NES style played games. Wii U was designed on a trend of people playing on tablets with no clear direction on how software would take advantage of this concept outside of off-TV play. This new tech engineers at Nintendo that designed the Wii U better have learned their lesson from this. It’s about the software first, then the technical specs.

    1. Exatly! It’s so funny to see before the system launched they said “We will have software that will take advantage of the Wii U’s unique controller.”
      …Then over a year later when the console is dying they say “Okay NOW we plan to have software that takes advantage of our cool controller.”

      Plan?…PLAN?! They’re just planning to do this now?? Idiots.

  4. What happened to all those secret games they were holding off on announcing that WERE supposed to take full advantage of the gamepad? They said earlier LAST year that they had games they were holding off because they didn’t want other companies to copy them. Am I the only one who remembers this?

  5. Oh boy. I can’t wait for more pixelated and blurry mess. If a DS came looks like shit on a 3DS, I can only imagine how bad it’s going to look on the Wii U gamepad.

  6. The truth is like medicine….it may taste bad but it’s what you need to hear. This console has been the biggest let down since the virtual boy. And yes I’ve been a Nintendo fan since the first nes. The head damn near a one year jump start on the competition and they piddled it away. Launch titles a joke. Recycled nes and super nes games. I still have all of my consoles. Why am I being treated to Mario 3 for the umpteenth time? I think the fans are starting to figure out this 8bit tomfuckery. Good system… Lack of creativity.

  7. “… it is obvious that our top priority task this year is to offer software titles that are made possible because of the GamePad. We have managed to offer several of such software titles for occasions when many people gather in one place to play, but we have not been able to offer a decisive software title that enriches the user’s gameplay experience when playing alone with the GamePad. This will be one of the top priorities of Mr. Miyamoto’s software development department this year.”

  9. I am a die hard Nintendo can but when I saw this it made me laugh that is bogus they should have enriched the gamepad experience with Donkey Kong if the systems main key selling point is the gamepad and they don’t make that ability for a game like Donkey Kong they should have never made it practice what you preach and make up your mind

  10. LMFAO!!Yeah Iwata you say you plan to enrich the Gamepad experience more and then your next huge game DKTF does NOT USE IT AT ALL!!?
    Seriously Iwata is a disgrace, and if the investors still want him in charge after the most pathetic load of drivel ever then I will be glad when Nintendo go the way of Sega as they deserve it for allowing such a tard to be the CEO!!

    1. The Wii U’s garbage; pointing fingers will not change that. A rich variety of enticing software would make it garbage worth buying for the games.

      BTW, LOL @ the “bias” comment, while visiting a Nintendo-dedicated site.
