Default Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii U eShop can be controlled with Gamepad

We used to do this before, right? New threads to discuss cool news and whatnot. Well anywho, it turns out that the Virtual Console (?) release of Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii U can be controlled with the Gamepad.

This is pretty big news because it's like one of the only games that works like this. Kinda makes you wonder why they didn't just spring for an HD re-release. You know, to really snag that Xenoblade money. So far it's only available to Europe but I don't see why NoA can't get it in a few weeks. So, now that Xenoblade Chronicles is playable fully on the Wii U and the 3DS are you gonna get it?

I've always wanted to play it on the Gamepad and I would get it if I wasn't so bored of Xenoblade Chronicles. I bought the 3DS version but about half way through the game, I just got bored and never bothered to continue it. Probably because I've already played through it twice on Wii.

If it does turn up on the US eShop, I'll definitely make the purchase. Not that the gamepad has a bearing on that decision. As far as an HD remaster goes, it would be wonderful to see since those character textures are just dire.
Fantastic, na magic!

I already have it on wii, so this would be useless haha.

But still, very neat!
