Patent for a Wii U controller cradle

It appears that Nintendo might have filed a patent for a cradle for the Wii U.

It looks like it might work similarly to the Nintendo 3DS charging cradle and could be used to charge the controller when not in use.

It is unknown whether this will be an actual device as many patents are filed and then never materialise. Only time will tell whether this device will come with the Wii U console.

    The 3ds charging cradle is very useful so I really hope this is true.

    I hope it comes with a detachable cable like the 3ds so I can also play while it charges, probably will.
