We know that you won't be able to take the Wii U controller out of the house to play games but will you be able to play in a different room? Over to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata to explain the range of the new Wii U controller.
"We are not saying we can get away from the living room at all," Iwata told Time. "What I'm saying is that we shall be less dependent on the home TV set; more specifically, the images and all the others are processed within the inside of the console of the Wii U, not in the controller. So, for example, you cannot just take away the controller and continue playing."
But Iwata added that it would be possible to continue playing in another room in the house, provided the walls aren't too thick!
"[It will have] a certain range. Also, it is possible for you to be in a separate room from the living room where the console of the Wii U will be located. However, dependent upon the thickness, for example, of the wall, we cannot tell if you will be able to smoothly play on that."
