Wii U GamePads Can Be Replaced For A Fee

The Wii U’s GamePad can be replaced by Nintendo for a fee and will not be available in shops according to My Nintendo News.

The GamePad costs ¥13,440 (around $172). It is unclear how much Nintendo’s fee for replacement will be. Initially the Wii U was only intended to work with a single GamePad but it has since been announced that it will function with two, however, no known games are currently in development which support two GamePads.

We’d best hope that Nintendo’s made them durable.
