Would it be possible for Nintendo to release an adapter that plugs into the wii remote that lets us plug in or more of our old N64 controllers into? I think this would be the only possible way to play N64 games because some games like Super Mario 64, Smash Bros, and Banjo Kazooie made use of C buttons and none of the Wii U controllers have the C buttons built in them. I know its spending more money for the adapter but what other choice would we have?

A 3rd party could make a N64 controller for the Wii U. I think there is a HIGH chance we see that.

Why would we need a N64 controller to play N64 games? The gamepad has enough buttons for it :D

I'm sure they would optimise the games for the pro controller, which would make it awkward for a third party controller to be fully compatible depending on on how each games control system was optimised...

The C buttons became the C stick which became (across all consoles) the second stick. As both the gamepad and the Pro controller contain a second stick, both can emulate the C button inputs.
