Want to protect that shiny new Wii U GamePad?

Wii U Acsr. SetIf you’re nervous about scuffing or scratching the touchscreen of your pricey new Wii U GamePad controller, Nintendo’s got you covered with their own first-party solution. The newly announced Wii U GamePad Accessory Set will come bundled with a screen protector and microfiber cloth to keep your contablet (controller/tablet, for those lacking the skills to decipher newly coined compound words) as fresh as the day you bought it.

The set also includes an extra large stylus, if your Donkey Kong-sized mits don’t enjoy the standard size that comes with the console. Both the stylus and cloth will come in the familiar “U” blue.

The Accessory Set can be yours for just $12.99, starting February 4 at retailers near you. Will you be picking the set for yourself, or is this more for the overprotective parent who also ensures their children wear Wii Remote wrist-straps at all times?
