    Is there any way to capture and record the video from the Wii u gamepad yet whether it would be wireless or using a capture card?

    there is a capture card for wii u but its expensive as hell US$239.56 without the wii u and US$648.00 with the wii u you may want to take a look here

    no idea how long the back log is on these i know there 3ds/n3ds capture cards theres a 6 month wait
    but if you dont want to capture the game pad i use to have an avermedia and elgato they can record from hdmi but replaced it with a Roxio HD capture since it also has component input aswell as HDMI

    edit:
    to capture games from wiiu that would need hack on wiiu trasmitter maybe, not capturing from gamepad if I understood from docs around internet ... but people here will give you more technical info :)
