Can You Play Your Wii U On The Go?

Can You Play Your Wii U On The Go?

Typically, if you wanted to play a Nintendo gaming device on the go,  you’d bring along your 3DS, DS, Game Boy Advance or maybe even your Virtual Boy (just joking).  Now all you need is a power outlet, your Wii U and your Wii U GamePad. The majority of Wii U games do not require a television and you could technically play your Wii U on the go, as long as you have a power source.

Recently, Rocket News 24 took their Wii U onto a Japanese bullet train which has a power outlet at each seat. They loaded up News Super Mario Bros. U and Call of Duty : Black Ops 2 and were able to play it on their GamePad without any complications. The GamePad acts as the controller and the screen which allows you to play your games virtually anywhere that has a power source. Thanks to their GamePad they enjoyed a full gaming experience on the go.

No one should mistake the Wii U for the 3Ds, but this is an advantage of the Wii U that should be appreciated. If you are taking a long flight, train or car ride, you can literally have console quality gaming in your hands, as long as you have an outlet. If you’re going to your country house and there’s no television, no need to worry, you’ll have your GamePad. As long as you don’t mind a little extra luggage (the Wii U is not very large), this is a really cool application of this console.
