    I personally won't purchase a touchscreen TV/Monitor for the sake of playing of one but would this really work or the touchscreen-ness is exclusive to GamePad completely?

    How would you let the Wii U know if you clicked on the screen? And where on the screen?
    Maybe you could make it possible by simulating the wiimote, that when you touch the screen, you clicked the A button on the wiimote.

    But then you need 2 gamepads right? But the Wii U only supports one.
    So when you don't wanna use the TV you first need to unconnect the TV screen and reconfigure the normal gamepad
    That is not very efficient.

    Or you emulate it with a pc and use the screen as output and input with something like this

    Think this is the ideal solution then. I'll need to look into it to see how it works.

    So what happens if you connect two gamepads in games ? Does it drop the second one out or what does it display ? What about vWii ?

    You can't. The Wii U system and games support only one. You can't register 2 Gamepads on one Wii

    Right, but Nintendo has verified that the Wii U is capable of connecting to 2 gamepads, no game has yet to make use of such a feature, and as such it's a feature that remains locked away. I suspect we'll see hackers first unlock and utilize this function before any official title does; if one ever even will.

    Well the hardware can run it but the software cant, not even the OS.
    https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Wii-U/Hardware-Features/Specifications/Specifications-664742.html
    Even here it talks about it:The Wii U console is capable of supporting two Wii U GamePad controllers, up to four Wii Remote (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers or Wii U Pro Controllers, and Wii accessories such as the Nunchuk, Classic Controller and Wii Balance Board.

    Technical impossibilities aside, I doubt anyone will want to play Kirby while standing directly in front of their television, making very wide movements that tire out the entire arm, smear the screen and probably make the television tumble backwards the moment you attempt to doubleclick something while under pressure. :P

    I think saiyan just wanted to know whether or not it was possible which it is.

    I know, but that part was already answered. And for the record: you're wrong. the wiiu doesn't detect the input on the touchscreen in any way, so the touch-part of the game (which is basically everything) is exclusive to the touchpad.
