Adelman: Dropping the GamePad From Wii U "Would Be a Huge Mistake"

Posted on Tuesday, August 19 @ 16:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Dan Adelman, the former indie-focused employee over at Nintendo, believes that the Big N should not backpedal on the Wii U's GamePad, going so far as to say that removing it "would be a huge mistake."

Speaking to Nintendo Life, Adelman explained:

I think de-bundling the GamePad from the system would be a huge mistake. Games wouldn’t feel comfortable supporting it since they couldn’t be sure that every Wii U owner has one. The GamePad is really the main thing that makes the console unique. Throwing that away makes it like any other hardware. I do wish that there were more examples of gameplay that would be impossible without it.

Not too long ago, Adelman bashed the name of Nintendo's tablet-centric console, saying that the Wii U branding is "abysmal" and the primary reason why it has seen lackluster sales.

Do you agree with the former Nintendo employee? Is the system's name truly to blame? Could the GamePad instead be the thorn in the Wii U's side?
