Wii U Gamepad Support Is Coming To PC


At the recent Hacker’s conference, a team displayed some of their findings on the Wii U Gamepad. Apparently they’d cracked the device and begun using it to stream PC games. The group demo’d the use of a Dolphin emulator running from the PC onto the Wii U Gamepad (fully supported). Another image that was used in the documentation was Final Fantasy 7 running via the gamepad.

The dedication of small teams like this is amazing. They’ve cracked the device, spilled its guts, and engineered it to stream from the PC. It looks like Titanfall is coming to the Wii U after all! If you’d like to take a look at the presentation, we have the google docs linked here.
