    I would like to get a second Gamepad for my Wii U, mainly to have a game capture gamepad and a normal one. I was wondering if I could buy an US one from Nintendo, or would I need to buy a second Wii U?

    well you can get them from ebay cheaper since the gamepad needs linking to the console anyone region should do.

    Saying that the gamepad capture kid is so unobtrusive you don't really need a second pad.

    Pretty sure gamepads are region locked.

    The Gamepads are locked in a way that they will work for gameplay but the system will refuse to update without a correct region gamepad connected. Since the OP has the capture modded one of the same region, this should not be a problem.
