seems like a logical choice to port. They could integrate it to miiverse and facebook.

The gamepad screen is just as ideal to use for the control like people use smartphones and other tablets.

If this were to come to wii-u, those who have friends on miiverse can request lives and unlock other areas like people do now.

Given the reported low cost of putting stuff on Eshop, this surely makes it a no brainer for folks making games on IOS/android to port to WiiU. This means the potential library of games coming to eshop is massive. Nice move Nintendo.

I knew Nintendo would take this approach the second I put the Gamepad in my hands. Glad to see their doing this sooner rather than later.
