Enhance your gameplay with a variety of essential Nintendo Wii U accessories
In spite of its relatively short lifespan, the Nintendo Wii U console still managed to be home to some of the greatest Nintendo titles in recent memory. The Nintendo Wii U is also a unique console, with its blend of Wii U Gamepad functionality combined with Wiimote controller compatibility, and as such there is a wide selection of useful and novel Nintendo Wii U accessories designed to make the most of your console experience.
Nintendo Wii U Controllers
The Nintendo Wii U is one of the most versatile consoles in history when it comes to controller support. While the base Wii U gamepad a controller in and of itself, the Wii U also supports a plethora of additional controller styles.
Firstly, the Wii U supports the traditional Wiimote controller, and as anyone who has ever played the wide variety or party game-style software designed with the Wiimote in mind, you can never have too many Wiimotes on hand when it comes to multiplayer fun. In fact, nearly every controller that was compatible with the Nintendo Wii console is also compatible with Wii U.
Additionally, the Wii U supports a number of other styles of controller, including a variety of “classic” controllers meant to emulate the style and feel of original Nintendo controllers such as those of the NES, SNES, and Nintendo Gamecube. The Wii even has an accessory called the Wii U Gamecube Adapter, which allows players to use their original Nintendo Gamecube controllers with the Wii U when playing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
The Wii U also has its own version of the standard modern controller that most multi-platform gamers are familiar with, known as the Wii U Pro Controller. This one connects to the Wii U wirelessly, eliminating the need for additional cables.
Nintendo Wii U charging and power cables
Another factor that differentiates the Wii U from other consoles is its cable requirements. Since both the Wii U base console and the Wii U Gamepad must have power for the console to operate, the Wii U actually requires 2 separate cables—a power cable for the console, and a power/charging cable for the Wii U Gamepad.
While the Wii U Gamepad is not required to operate as a controller for most games, it still must be on and receiving power for the console to work. A separate power/charging cable can remain plugged into the Gamepad during play, or unplugged while operating on the Wii U Gamepad internal battery. Both the Wii U console power cable and Gamepad power cable come in the box, but they can also be purchased separately and replaced if lost or damaged.
Nintendo Wii U skins, cases, and faceplates
It’s easy to customize your Nintendo Wii U console and accessories with a wide variety of skins and faceplates to suit your own personal style. There are Nintendo Wii U skins available for nearly every style of compatible Wii U controller, including the Pro Controller, the Wiimote, and more. You can even customize the Wii U Gamepad with a unique faceplate accessory.
There are also cases designed specifically for housing the Nintendo Wii U console along with its essential components and accessories. This is a must have accessory for anyone who wants to take their Wii U console on the go.
More of the best Wii U accessories
There are a wealth of additional must have Wii U accessories available. A few more essentials include a screen protector or additional stylus for the Wii U Gamepad, charging stations along with rechargeable batteries for Wiimote controllers, or a variety of controller adapters and controller extension cords.
You can also find a selection of replacement parts for the Wii U console, including the Wii/Wii U motion sensor bar, or even a replacement for the Wii U Gamepad internal battery.
