We didn't really catch this with the New Super Luigi U stuff (if we did then I apologise and close this, did a quick search and didn't see it).

Before New Super Luigi U comes out (or on the same day), a patch will come for New Super Mario Bros U. This patch allows for two things

- Purchase of New Super Luigi U within New Super Mario Bros U. No need to go to the eShop
- Support for the games to be played with the Wii U Pro Controller

I'm impressed. Perhaps they actually listened to the complaints about the lack of support.

That's good news actually.

Gives me a use of that thing. The game is fantastic and I can't wait for the Luigi U expansion.

Nintendo patching games?

Nintendo including useful features in patches for games?

Hmm, I wonder how they'll accommodate the sections that require the gyroscope. Second stick, maybe?

Very cool of them, but I'll probably still use the wiimote personally. I don't want to push a button to stretch my jump, if that's what they are planning. It's been a while since I put it on, I forget what other waggle it has.

That's interesting, especially with the lack of motion tracking (from what people have said before) in the Pro Controller. Guess it's a nice side benefit for them working on the Luigi DLC.

Or a far sinister sign for the GamePad at E3. I'm kidding! ...Probably.

A lot of people were clamoring for this, so this is a welcome addition. I second being able to use the Wii U pad to control an actual character though.

Huge shame this comes months after I finished the game, no excuse, this should have been in the release, the chunk of code for key mapping is so minimal.
