Not sure, but Wii remote is best for games like that!

Would be nice to see how gamepad is used though

Unknown sir. Not every game supports off screen play. I dont recall them confirming this, but they may have.

Pretty sure you can, but honestly I'd rather use the wiimote or touch controls similar to the pikmin adventure on nintendoland.
