Includes two new analog sticks, new arrangement of the front buttons, the TV control button and the NFC reader / writer.
Nintendo Direct pre-E3 has relayed what Nintendo will use to show the world the final version of the Wii U Remote, to be called finally Wii U Game Pad, a name inherited from the original NES.
Regarding the prototype showed at E3 last year, the new controller now includes two new analog sticks instead of the previous sliders that were better suited for portable consoles.
It has also redesigned the rear of the controller and the front design of the buttons. Something that stands out is a small square on the left side of the peripheral and that is a reader / writer used to place NFC cards or pictures and can read data or incorporate various functions relevant to a game.
It also highlights the emergence of a button called Control TV, which can be used even when the console is off, and to convert the Wii U Game Pad in a television remote control with wireless infrared independently.
