    I still don’t see why this isn’t on Wii U as it is showing up on “next-gen” PS3 and Xbox 360. The second screen would be perfect for the Wii U’s GamePad.

      That is a very valid point, I didn’t even notice that when I was putting all this together. Especially since this is more family focused, and in my opinion, Nintendo has always been more family friendly
