Question from milhouseVH

Is there a way to switch to a Gamepad-only mode without the TV?

If I've turned the Wii U on without the TV, I can get into a game. If that game has a Gamepad-only (or off-TV) mode that requires turning on from the TV menus, is there a standard way to activate it from the Gamepad? Nintendo seem to have left this up to the developers, which means there is no standard.

It really depends on if the game was made to allow that by the developer so it is not set in stone metaphorically.

Well, I don't know if this is true for all games, but with Sonic & All Stars Racers Transformed, you just swipe down on the gamepad, then a message pops up saying that it has been transferred to the gamepad.
