E3: Is this Nintendo's official Wii U GamePad stand?

E3: Is this Nintendo's official Wii U GamePad stand? photo



We spotted something interesting on the show floor today at Nintendo's booth. A few Wii U titles allow you to use the GamePad as a visual aid while using a Wii Remote for gameplay. In Pikmin 3, for example, while playing with the Wii Remote, a map of the entire area is displayed on the GamePad's screen.

Well, how would one see the map if the GamePad were lying flat on a coffee table? While we hadn't previously thought about it, it would make sense to have a stand for the GamePad for this kind of purpose. We spotted just that, and while we're not certain if this is a final design, given the need for such a stand, I wouldn't be surprised if it were included. I noticed when placing the GamePad back in the stand that it was seemingly made to cradle it, with a small dip in the front to allow for the home button. The imprinted Nintendo and Wii U logos on the stand also suggest that it's official.

If this is the case, how long do you think it will be before we start seeing third-party Wii U GamePad stands on the market?
