Despite earlier reports suggesting otherwise, It appears that using multiple U Pad's, or even 3DS's as controllers is a possibility for Wii U which has yet to have a finalised design. Shigeru Miyamoto has clarified the matter saying that Nintendo's R & D are currently working on the both:

“Our basic premise is that you can use one with a system, If we got to an idea of having multiple (controllers) it might be just more convenient for people to use their Nintendo 3DS and have a way to connect that.”

“That being said, we are doing research about if someone brings their controller to their friend’s house and they want to play together on Wii U to whether or not something like that would be possible.”
