Wii U Games That Support Off-Screen Feature

A list of Wii U games that support off screen play. (Wii U)

Off-screen is basically the primary reason I bought these on the Wii U. If they add nothing, I'd probably consider the PS3 version depending on which one my friends choose to buy.

It's a huge variable , that in my trully honest opinion makes the wiiu version superior.

I don't think people understand how revoloutionary it is to be able to play uninterupted.
I play in bed , I play whilst watching tv , I play in lying down positions. And it just generally feels cool to play on the gampad sometimes. I probably play more on the Gamepad than on the TV tbh....

Please don't respond telling me I'm an idiot. This is how I feel about this feature. It has tons of potential and adds a new dimension to the lazyness of gaming.

If only Sony would have done this with the Vita, I may hight have not traded it in. But they didn't and totally missed an opportunity here.

I almost did the same, but kept mine. I like the WIIU because it was made from day one to do multi screen and off screen gaming. I like Sony's ability to adapt, but I think they are having troubles, thus taking too long to provide the service they showed off at E3 last year. Will see how they connect the ps4 with the vita, but in the mean time I'm enjoying Black OPS 2 laying in bed.

Every day I look at my wii u I tell myself why, I don't like it. If you don't own one don't buy one. Unless you must have super Mario games. And a gamepad the last 2 hours on a full charge.

Wow, first off you're missing tons of great games if you think it only has a good Mario game. Trine 2, Nano Assault Neo, Scribblenauts and ZombiU are all top notch games. Plus Black Ops 2, AC3, Batman, ME3, Darksiders 2 or Tekken Tag Tournament 2 are multiplats with added extras. Sure some of them are older ports (ME3, Batman, Darksiders 2, Tekken), but AC3 was 3 weeks old and Black Ops 2 was 1 week old, so you can't call them old ports.

As for your gamepad, you might want to get the battery checked. Mine lasts way longer than 2 hours on a charge, even on games that require constant use of it like ZombiU. It doesn't really bother me because I never game for more than 2-3 hours at a time, so the battery works perfect for me. I charge it in-between uses anyways, so it's always ready to go. Not to mention that there is a 3rd party battery that is coming out which will double the play time to 5-6 hours on a full charge. For a game like Black Ops I tend to use the Pro Controller anyways, and that thing lasts like 80 hours on a full charge, so that's plenty of juice.

To each their own though.

That guy is just a douche. There is no way on Gods earth my Gamepad lasts 2 hours. More like 4 at least.
Even then you have the Charging cable to just plug and keep on playing. NOT. AN . ISSUE .

I've bought NSMBU , Nintendo Land , ZombiU - all amazing exclusives . AC3 , Batman , Mass effect 3 , TTT2 , Sonic racing , Blops 2 , Trine 2 , Nano assault .

And I love everyone of them for one reason or another. Even CoD on Wiiu is amazing because you and your friends can fight locally with a screen each....

Wiiu is amazing.

i saw NG3: RE on that list and seriously i tried to put it on the gamepad and I thought i wasn't doing it right until i noticed it in option setting lol ( DUH)

off screen play is a great way to free up the big screen when the wife wants it.
