Datel Japan To Release Slick Famicom Faceplate For Wii U GamePad

My Nintendo News


Datel Japan have released pictures of a sleek aluminium Famicom-style faceplate for the Wii U GamePad. This design is intended for use with a Deluxe Wii U set, as the buttons on a Famicom controller are black. With the faceplate on, the GamePad will not work in the standard Wii U charger cradle. Luckily, Datel Japan offers an alternate cradle that allows the GamePad with faceplate to fit. It is not clarified whether or not the faceplate will interfere with NFC-based activities. The faceplate will be launching July 31st, at ¥1,980 (about $20).
