Wii U goes mobile

Wii U goes mobile

For dedicated commuters only

The new Wii U may not be intended as a portable machine - but it can be if you really want. Japanese site Rocket News 24 has conducted an experiment, connecting up and playing Wii U on the Nozomi bullet train.

Many trains these days are equipped with power sockets, combine this with the fact that some Wii U games can be played independently of the TV and you're good to go. See the pics below of Kuzo's journey:

Unless the journey is very long, you might be better off sticking with your 3DS - but at least this is an option!

Good to know, we have plug sockets on the trains here in the UK, but no Wi-Fi.
