A. Probably! There are many Wii U games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and New Super Mario Bros U that do not support motion controls, but which allow additional players with Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote controllers to join in by holding the device like a traditional controller instead of a TV remote. Q. How are Wii U motion controllers powered? If a Wii Remote’s motion control icon is moving erratically or disappears entirely, move within 1-3 feet of the Wii U console, recalibrate your motion controller by placing it on a flat horizontal surface for 10 seconds with the buttons facing down, and try again. Have to make some effort to get to 50. Not a good system and not a good time to be a Nintendo fan with the constant software droughts. Entire weeks were literally nothing released, let alone anything worthwhile, and Nintendo trying to string two years of releases out to fill four.

Charge time is about 2.5 hours (it can charge while in use) but needs a separate outlet unless third party accessories are used. The Wii U was both behind on its time and ahead of its time, people just weren't ready for its potential, and only saw what it had going against it. Nintendo kept pumping out great game after great game, at launch prices of 45€ instead of 60, all while they did the same for the 3ds that eventually DID catch up saleswise. They even gave free games to early adopters, free games if you registered a certain amount of games from a certain selection,... And so many absolute great ones... A great time to be a Nintendo fan, but most gamers were NOT, and therefore kept the myth alive that it had no games, making actally making games for it a waste of money for publishers, so the myth became "truth". It was actually nice in a way to NOT have so many games screaming for your attention. You could easily play most of the great releases, and keep up with the smaller ones, and not end up having paid a fortne, having played a few hours in every game, and having buyers remorse about most, only supressed by hype for the next disappointment in line. a b "Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innovation This Console Cycle, But We Didn't Showcase It Well Enough". Nintendo Life. August 11, 2015. Archived from the original on September 3, 2023 . Retrieved September 3, 2023. Criminally underrated console, and I'm sorry that people don't understand this but Nintendo Land is the killer app Wii Sports was AND THEN SOME. Maybe it didn't sell as many copies, but the asymmetrical gameplay with the game pad was on another level that even the mighty switch hasn't reached.I loved my Wii U, though. Great console. Pretty telling that the top 2 games were both available on other systems at the time they launched, though. Wii U GamePad high-capacity battery now available, promises 8 hours of use". GameSpot.

In retrospect it's easy to praise the Wii U's library, but the main problem of its time was the big drought of releases that happened specially in 2015 and 2016. Without third party support, with only a few indie hits and with the 3DS (an actual successful platform) to develop for, Nintendo just wasn't able to keep up. Thankfully there is a happy ending. Without the Wii U's failure, the Switch wouldn't be where it is today. Completed BOTW on Wii U (all main quests, side quests and shrines, as well as Champions Ballad). Didn't finish Koroks or Trial of the Sword. Halfway through a second playthrough on Switch. Aside from faster loading times, I haven't noticed any major differences on the Switch version. Maybe side by side shows up performance issues more clearly.

NFC, short for Near Field Communication, is a communication standard which allows for wireless distribution of information. Iwata described the uses of NFC to investors in this way: With that separate screen on the controller, the WiiU provided game play experienced not available anywhere else - it was an underappreciated FAMILY fun console.

However, Nintendo announced in November 2016 that it would discontinue the production of Wii U consoles in Japan, and on January 31, 2017, announced that it would officially discontinue Wii U worldwide. To control Wii U consoles, Wii U GamePad is the best choice, but this console also supports Wii U Pro controller. The battery life of the GamePad was criticized for being too short. Andrew Hayward of TechRadar stated in his review "with the [GamePad's] brightness on max which we found essential for getting the best-quality play experience, we struggled to push past that three-hour mark." Hayward also criticized the range of the GamePad, which reportedly works up to 25 feet away from the console. [25] Nintendo would release a 2550mAh battery [26] with over 8 hours of battery life, [27] [28] [29] versus the original 3-5 hour battery life on the original 1500mAh battery. [30] Controversial opinion: Mario Kart 8 on Wii U has the exact same problems as the modern Mario sports games everyone complains about, except the free updates it should've had didn't happen until you bought the Switch version. This comparison is both me saying 8 on Wii U should not be in the top 3 and also that modern Mario sports games are overhated.

Seriously one of my favorite couch co-op games from Nintendo - my friends and I spent dozens of hours on this one. It made great use of the Wii U’s dual screens, too. Fingas, Jon (June 5, 2012).

Unless you’re on a mission to get the most out of one or two especially exciting games, you’ll want to invest in controllers that are compatible with most of the Wii U library. ColorNintendo's touch screen controller for the Wii U is now becoming a more powerful tool for communication.

Naturally, the most important feature of any Wii U controller is whether the device can effectively and comfortably help you to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s castle and onward through every adventure that you take with your Wii U. Official Wii U controllers are designed to work perfectly with the console, and third-party controllers were made to emulate Nintendo’s design as closely as possible, so there aren’t many features that are exclusive to different controllers. With that said, two worthwhile features to look for are compatibility and color. Compatibility E_maniac It's a good thing a lot of the Wii U's exclusives are on the Switch. Here's to hoping Nintendo Land somehow makes its way to the Switch. (this post offers latest Wii U Pro Controller software and the guide in the readme file.) And Wii U version of Zelda BotW clearly would have been a superior version of the game if only Nintendo themselves did not removed the dual-screen setup. Visual/performance differences is not that noticeable, really. The official high-capacity battery for the Wii U GamePad is now available in the U.S." Kotaku. December 23, 2013 . Retrieved September 3, 2023. For me atm the wiiu is mainly there to play Xenoblade X and the virtual console games, i remember most of my time on the system was using off-TV play.

Looked over the list and realized I own 40 of the titles on the list, and only don't own the others because I never had any real interest in them. It's a shame that it didn't get the attention it deserved from people or Nintendo. Not sure if I want to invest in Switch just for the few games I’d play and since it’s getting to be rather old now. Maybe I might buy someone’s collection down the road.
