Nice, so this is 4-player split screen game, just the fourth split is on the GamePad - cool idea!


I'm hoping for 2 player FPS games to use this feature, one guy on the TV, the other on the GamePad.
Although would that mean it would have to be dropped to 30fps? Either way, I hope this feature is used A LOT on Wii U.


Also, this better be a $5-10 eShop game...

For a 2 player FPS you could potentially have 60fps gameplay on both the TV and the GamePad. It's only if you are using two Wii U GamePad's that they are limited to displaying 30fps.

A game like this is right up my alley. Dumb, stupid fun! How much would I pay? I don't know. A budget retail release would probably be fine.

I'm excited to find out how the multiplayer co-op in this game works. I want to fight godzilla.

I do love me some tanks and stupid fun, but yeah if this isn't under $20 I don't think I'll be biting.

Namco is really showing some effort for Wii U.  :-\

Beaming the same video output to the controller and TV is one thing - but I'm unsure about 2 completely different displays.
With a game like Tanks it might be easy to mask resolution changes and frame drops, that's why I used a processor-heavy example like a FPS. Could it really do 2 different gameplay outputs at 60fps at full resolution?
I certainly hope so, it could be the Wii U's hidden golden feature!

They are also releasing Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on Wii U. Anyways, Tank! Tank! Tank! looks like mindless fun. I don't think I would spend more than $20 on it, but at that price I might pick it up.
