The answer is a pretty solid "probably".

As long as it's compatible with USB 2.0 I believe it should work (and most 3.0 hard drives are backwards compatible).

It's a USB 3.0 external hard drive. USB 3.0 needs additional power to run on a USB 2.0 port. If it doesn't have an external power source as long as you have a Y cable plugged on the (2) USB 2.0 ports at the back of the Wii U then it will work. You really don't need the gigabit speed offered on USB 3.0 as the USB 2.0 ports on Wii U will limit it to 480 Mbps downlink/uplink speed.
