    Wii U Gamepad 3D Output Confirmed

    Two weeks ago, we, the IMGMR team, were told of a very interesting bit of information regarding the Wii U Gamepad. At Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III Launch Party here in Montreal, a Product Manager shared with us that the Gamepad is actually 3D enabled and will be usable in games like Assassin's Creed III. Now, we come with the confirmation.

    In Assassin's Creed III, the 3D factor can be activated at any time during gameplay by going into the options and changing the 3D settings at "Sterescopy" and, right under, "3D Strength". The stereoscopy can be changed from Off, to Inficolor, to Side By Side or Top Bottom. Also, the 3D strength can be measured from 0 to 10, depending on your visual comfort. The green and magenta 3D glasses needed to experience this visual sensation come from Inficolor.

    On a quick note, it was already established that many Wii U games will allow gamer to play the whole experience on the Wii U Gamepad's screen. One such example is obviously Assassin's Creed III. From the settings as well, players can bring the action in between their hands and then bring it back to the big screen if ever they feel they prefer the big screen experience.

    Pretty cool, no doubt. But if the battery life on this thing sucks as bad as people say it does. (3 hrs I'm hearing) How long can you expect it to last on 3D?

    Are you serious, 3 hours only. Lol looks like a whole lot of time will be spent charging it. Charge times should be fast though...

    Yeah, it's a bit of a factor for sure. I think 6 hours was quoted with the brightness all the way down, no sound, and no vibrations. Since it does have a dedicated AC adapter, you should be able to plug it in and play (which isn't too bad for me, since my couch is currently blocking an unused outlet).

    I would imagine that the battery would be removable like the Wii Remotes (I haven't opened my Wii U yet, so I can't say for sure), which will prompt aftermarket replacements which, hopefully, will come in a flavor of higher capacities. However, if replacing the battery in the Gamepad is like replacing a batter in an iPod, then we're gonna have problems....
