Yesterday, a story broke citing a Ubisoft manager who said that the WiiU would only support one tablet gamepad at a time, in addition to four remotes, for a total of five players. Some players were very disappointed by that though, wishing for more multiplayer tablet gaming.
Today, Reggie Fils-Aime took the stage at Nintendo's E3 press conference, and used the opportunity to reassure fans that two gamepads can be used at once. So while asymmetric gaming is still something they're focusing on. It wont be all the WiiU can handle.
So now we're left wondering what the player cap is. Is it two gamepads plus four remotes? Or does it max out at five players as in Rayman Legends?
