    New patent filed by Nintendo reveals new clip-on Accessory for Wii remote that is an Touchpad

    [​IMG]

    We all know Wii U comes with a giant Touchpad controller, well it seems Nintendo is going to downscale that technology for the old Wii remote, maybe for second-player function, or for the old Wii unit

      great idea 5 years too late the ui and many games would really benefit from having the choice of using an ir pad rather than the pointer.

      why not just let 4 wii u controllers connect? Not all of them have to be streaming live video from the console. They should really place a small cpu and memory in the controller so 4 can be used as touch during multi player games

      because each wii u controller is going to cost a fcuking fortune so its much easier to sell a cheap add on for the wii remotes people already own.

      Patent does not imply plan.
