    • I don't think you can access the Wii U for the first time without the gamepad, because when they're officially sold they always come with one.

    I didn't mean to like that post, but whatever.

    Anyway, you'll have to grab a gamepad.

    Yeah, to go through initial setup, you'll need the gamepad as it needs to configure the gamepad to sync with the console. You'll have to find one before you can use it, or maybe borrow someone's and use it temporarily.

    They are not cheap unless you buy one with a broken LCD.
