Blaarg commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

The gamepad has a lot of possibilities but I don't see any killer app on the short term horizon. Nintendo games announced/released up to now (Mario 3D World, Mario Kart, Smash Bros) implement multiplayer as their core. But unlike nintendo land, they didn't based their WHOLE gameplay on the gamepad, so it is just a controller, that only ONE player has, and that means they usually don't use all its capacities in order to keep equality between players.
So I think the killer app for the gamepad would be either a solo game or a very gamepad-centred multiplayer game, probably with big asymmetry at its core. It is very unlikely that we see any game like that from nintendo before the next E3
