GenGAME believes the Wii U GamePad would be well placed as a standard controller for a Zelda title on Wii U and should have the inventory system on the GamePad’s screen much like how Nintendo utilized the 3DS’ touch screen for Ocarina of Time 3D. They also think the gyroscope function should be transferred over to Zelda Wii U as long as it remains as an option only and the traditional analog controls are created to perform faster unlike Ocarina of Time 3D’s. GenGAME also thinks implementing Wii motion plus when a compatible controller is in use would be great as an alternative with motion-only features which may be disabled when using a non-compatible control method.
GenGAME also discusses the topic of an in-built notebook for scribbling down important info needing to be remembered for later on in the game just as was possible with Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. Beacons, as in Skyward Sword, are also necessary for Wii U according to the article.
Another interesting topic is the idea of whether Zelda Wii U should allow for more than one gamer playing at a time like Battle Quest from Nintendo Land allows. GenGAME thinks this should be an option so the whole family may get together with one person having a first-person view with the GamePad and the others using Wii remotes with a third-person view.
