Hello everyone, I need some assistance with a game a redeem with Club Nintendo. I spent 250 coins on Super Mario 64 for the Wii virtual console. The second page confirming the order stated the required controllers needed to play the game. I would need either a classic controller or a Nintendo Gamecube controller. Now, mind you, I'm doing all this on my Wii U and I have the GC adapter that came out with the launch of Smash Bros for Wii U. When I launch Super Mario 64 on the Wii menu, it states that I don't have any of the required controllers connected to the system. (When I clearly have the GC adapter and a GC controller plugged into the WiiU) Any suggestions? Am I wrong for thinking the GC adapter would work for the Wii menu?

The GC adapter only works for SSB4 at the time. It will not work in Wii mode, you're going to need a Classic Controller to play the game. However, I think there is going to be an update in the future that allows you to use the Game Pad to play Wii mode games.

Could it be possible a future update that makes the adapter work on Wii mode? It could be a Wii Menu update, I believe it's possible.

Thanks for the replies. I hope these updates rumors are true. Getting a classic controller is no problem to me at all, just an inconvenience. I was really looking forward to playing Super Mario 64 again. I guess I was so excited to redeem my coins and get the game that I didn't think it through hahaha.

Just be sure to use the code before July 31st. Otherwise, the code expires.

@Jamiefin94 If you haven't used it yet, you might want to consider redeeming the code on your Wii with GameCube ports and controllers, if you happen to have them. GameCube controllers are perfect for N64 games, that's why I play them on Wii and not on Wii U. Besides, they are better than classic controllers.
