Last we heard, the Wii U was only going to have support for one lone tablet controller, which really didn’t make a lot of sense. I mean who wants to pass the controller around when playing two player games? Well, now it looks like it may support a pair of tablet controllers.
According to one anonymous developer, there is evidence that Nintendo is prepping the console to support two of its touchscreen tablet controllers. The unnamed source says there are “numerous indications” in the Wii U code base that suggest this.
We know that the touchscreen controllers will combine tablet functions with the original Wii‘s set of motion controls. The developer says that Nintendo almost has the kinks worked out to get two tablet controllers to work with the console. If you were hoping for more, for four player games, you can forget it. Some horsepower may need to be sacrificed just to get two to work.
