Wii U still a great console!

The Wii U may not have been a sales success for Nintendo but it's an excellent console and definitely still worth purchasing as it has some great games on it. Nintendo's fist party games are great as usual and the back catalogue of decent games will keep you going for a long time to come (and the new Zelda game is out for the Wii U early March!). You also have the Virtual Console to relive classics from consoles such as NES, SNES & N64. Highly recommended!

Wii U keeps me fit

We had the old Wii, Wii U is far superior. We went for the Wii U because it still accepts the old Wii discs, I do Wii Fit exercises every day. Having a handset that incorporates a screen is very useful. We bought the Wii Fit to lose weight, I was heading towards twenty stones and was having problems walking, I'm now fifteen and a half stones just by doing exercises with Wii Fit. It's an expensive initial outlay but much cheaper than a gym membership. I can't praise it enough.

Great buy for my boys, can't connect to network

My 7 and 4yr old boys absolutely love it! It was easy to set up and configure and the games are instantly playable (MarioKart, Lego Star Wars, Splatoon, Sports Resort). My only issue is wifi connectivity. It is still not connected to our home wifi network and have read about lots of issues online with people experiencing similar connectivity issues. TBH, I'm not totally sure what to do about it. Other than that, everything is great and really pleased with purchase! Simon

Will only Wii U remote plus controller work with this and do any remotes come in the box?

Will only the Wii U remote plus controller work with this or can I use just Wii remotes? Also, do any Wii U remotes come in the box?

2 Answers

Hi Mandy,

Nintendo Wii U's come bundled with Wii U GamePads and this is needed to fully enjoy the Wii U console. You may use Wii Remotes and Nunchuks as well, but please do check on the software box as it will vary from title to title.

Kind Regards,
Nintendo Customer Support

Hi there,

I can confirm that this bundle does not come with any Wii remotes. Original Wii remotes and remote plus will work with this system.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
