Topic: To a lucky Wii U owner, a little question

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Hello all,

Can I play Virtual Console games with the Wii U Pro Controller?

If NOT, can I still use my old Wii Classic Controller? Note mine is the classic one, released in Wii 2006 launch, not the Pro that came later.

Thank you very much!

You cannot use the Pro. You CAN use the Classic Controller.

With Wii vc, you can only use Wii controllers. And yes, the original cc works.

All Wii controllers work on the Wii U as if it were a Wii. Unfortunately Wii U controllers are not supported by any Wii games.
