[Update: As per the Nintendo of America Twitter, when two GamePads are activated, they'll both run at 30 frames per second, half the default 60 frames per second.]

[Update 2: Nintendo has posted a video walkthrough of the GamePad's functionality. Check it out below!]

Last year, when Wii U and the new controller were both unveiled at E3, people began to wonder aloud, "Would Nintendo's new console support more than just one new controller?" Nintendo itself was a bit wishy-washy on the subject, but we finally have an answer ... and the answer is yes.
