This is great news. I prefer sitting somewhere comfortable and playing on the Gamepad rather than staring up at the TV. I imagine it's a lot easier to make the Gamepad play the full game off-TV as well; adding inventories and maps will undoubtedly mean more work. Although taking advantage of the Gamepad's second screen in other ways may appeal to some, I probably wouldn't use any additional features -- e.g. I never use the Gamepad map or horn in Mario Kart 8.
