In the latest Iwata Asks, Nintendo’s CEO brought along a couple of never-before-seen Wii U GamePad prototypes.
Here’s the first one:

Second one:

It’s a rather odd contraption. Essentially, the prototype is a Wii Zapper peripheral with a nunchuck and screen attached.

The first pic i was like Wtf? It just shows how ninty are so creative. ;)

That second contrivance looks like it would make for an excellent FPS scenario.

I haven't read the article but it looks as if they may have been trying to keep the wiimote as a core element to the game pad. I can't blame them when they cost around £40 each!
