Once you’ve taken your Wii U console and all its components out of the box you’ll need to decide where to put the console. It should be placed on a flat surface near your television.
By default the Wii U console lies flat, but if you have a stand, such as the one that comes with the Deluxe set, you can sit it upright. The stand is two plastic pieces that look like something like short “U”s. They go on what is the right side of the console as it is lying flat. The tabs sticking out of the console correspond to slots in the stand pieces.
