Playing Nintendo Wii U games with GamePad on TV

You can use the Nintendo Wii U GamePad as a controller for playing games on your TV. You can use the control buttons, touch display, stylus, or motion gestures to control your games. You can also play your games directly on the Wii U GamePad. When playing games on TV the Wii U GamePad can provide an alternative perspective of the game.

The Console set comes with one Wii U GamePad. If you need more, you can buy them separately.
