A new battery pack for the Wii U GamePad will be released in Japan in July that extends the controller’s battery life by about three hours.

The 2,550 mAH GamePad battery pack, when fully charged, will power the GamePad for five to eight hours. The GamePad currently uses a 1,500 mAH battery pack that only provides three to five hours of life. The new battery pack goes on sale in Japan July 25 for 3,150 yen ($31). A North American release hasn’t been announced yet, but is undoubtedly coming.

Nintendo also announced a white Wii U Deluxe Set is set to hit Japanese shelves July 13. Similarly, no word on its release outside of Japan, but consider it an inevitability. The Wii U Deluxe Set is currently only available in black (which, as far as I’m concerned, is the only color a console should be—but to each their own).
