Thinking your shiny Wii U could use some flair for the new year? Then why not consider getting a cool decal to give your system some style!? Decal Girl has some great design options if you’re thinking about decorating your Wii U console and Gamepad. Here are some of our favorite skin designs, but share your personal favorites in the comments:

Assassin’s Creed themed “Glitch” Skin

Spider Man themed “Webslinger” Skin

Tertris themed “Tetrads” Skin

Original NES themed “Retro” Skin

“Flying Tree Black” Skin

“Crime Scene” Skin


“Break-Up Infinity” Skin

These decals will definitely give your system some added pizazz and seperate your Wii U from the rest of the pack. Decal girl has a large gallery of skins to choose from, so you’re sure to find something that suits you. Once you’ve got your skin, visit the website’s Basic Installation Tips page for steps on how to install it. I expect more third-party companies to jump on the Wii U accessory bandwagon as time goes by. Hori has already begun selling their own decorative skin, amongst other Wii U accessories like Gamepad sleeves and headphones.

Below is an installation video of the “Retro” NES skin, courtesy of Gaming Vlog Network.

So, will you be giving your Wii U a makeover for the new year? If so, which skin would you go for? Or, do you prefer your console the way it is? Personally, I’m more of a retro kinda guy; I love anything that reminds me of my childhood from the 80’s and 90’s, so my choice would definitely be the classic NES skin (until an X-Men skin becomes availible of course).

We will be posting a review on one of the skins from Decal Girl, so be sure to check back for our thoughts on it; the good, the bad, and the sticky!
