Wii U 'capable of portable gaming', owner plays on a train - pictures

By
A Wii U user has demonstrated the console's capacity for handheld gaming.

Nintendo's new console was recently tested on a Japanese bullet train by a journalist named Kuzo from Rocket News (via Kotaku).
Fitted with electric sockets and WiFi, Kuzo was able to use the Wii U on a three-hour journey without the need for a television.

Designed to test the breadth of the Wii U's play space, Kuzo confirmed that he was able to enjoy all of the Wii U's features and it was surprisingly easy to transport.
