Advice for Playing
When playing a game that involves
alternating between a Wii Remote and the
Wii U GamePad, make sure you have both
to hand before starting.
When placing the GamePad on the floor,
choose a flat surface. Make sure there is
enough room around the GamePad to
play safely. Stepping on or kicking the
GamePad could lead to injury, or damage
to both the GamePad and nearby objects.
Some games are played by turning the
GamePad around and showing the screen
to other players. If the GamePad becomes
difficult to hold in this position, please
put the GamePad on a stable surface, like
a table or your lap.
When playing a GamePad Party game or
playing with the GamePad on the floor,
make sure the GamePad is not being
charged at the same time. If your hands
or feet get caught in the Wii U GamePad
AC adapter cords, it could lead to injury,
or damage to both the GamePad and
nearby objects.
When playing Water Runners in House
Party mode, make sure there is plenty of
space around you and do not make any
abrupt movements. Doing so could lead
to injury, or damage to both the GamePad
and nearby objects.
