Oh, finally we can use another controller in the eShop aside from the Wii U Gamepad. I don't have that one for now and I need to access to the store right now, I don't understand why we couldn't do this in the past.

They need full controller interaction. I should be able to use my Wiimotes and Gamepad in both the Wii and WiiU menus

"Users can now navigate the Nintendo eShop using a Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller, or Classic Controller"

Awesome. I hope they add an update that let us turn on the system with the Pro Controller without it also turning on the gamepad.

So you can transfer from your old Wii U to your new Wii U and won't need the gamepad. Hmm...interesting.

I agree it is interesting- what is the purpose of using multiple controllers for the e shop- is that done In case someone's game pad is broken?

Yes, I guess. Or if the battery is empty and you dont have the charger with you, for whatever reason^^

Makes sense - choices are always good- I get the feeling there may be something bigger behind these updates that may not be revealed in the near future but it's just a hunch

Either way any improvement is good
