Here at Wii U Daily we’ve shown you various accessories that are available for your Wii U, but none of them have been official Nintendo licensed products. Nintendo is finally releasing a Wii U GamePad accessory set on February 4th, available for $12.99. The package includes a screen protector, cleaning cloth, and an extra large stylus similar to what’s available in the DSi XL. If you haven’t already picked up a screen protector for your GamePad, then this package is definitely for you.

    Don’t know about America but at least in Europe this was available in stores in Wii U’s launch day.

    Works quite well for me.

  • I have one of those already. It’s available on Europe since day one.

    • Yep, just launching here in the US. Also, Hey. 🙂

      • Hi =)
        eheh so you are that Ashley? What a coincidence. Anyway I can say that the stylus is better that the bundled one. The screen protector is easy to apply, gets the job done 🙂

    Umm how about a better battery…

    • Nyko is releasing a bigger battery pack for the GamePad if you want better battery life. Don’t expect anything like that from Nintendo because that’s officially a statement that the battery life is crap on their product.

        Actually the reason Nintnedo don’t bring out a better battery is because higher capacity batteries don’t have as long a lifespan as lower capacity ones. Nintendo always go for the longer lifespan option.

    Do you think in a few months this might be a free inclusion for customers buying a new Wii U console? Kind of like how the Wii Motion Plus was a separate accessory, but later included with new consoles.

      I don’t really see that happening with this one, but it’s possible of course.
