I've decided that I can't live without Zelda: Breath of the Wild any longer, but I don't have any of the recent Nintendo consoles. Given that the game performance and graphics seem comparable on Wii U vs. Switch, I'm thinking of getting a Wii U and playing BOTW there, skipping the Switch altogether. However I live a very minimalist lifestyle and don't have a TV, so I want to ensure that I can play BOTW on Wii U without ever needing to connect to a TV.
If I want to play BOTW on Wii U, will I need to use Wii U's "TV mode" at any point -- either to play the game itself (ie. docked), or to set up my newly opened Wii U in the first place?
