Does the Wii U pro controller work for Wii U games

#1Local237Posted 11/25/2012 5:39:39 PM
I bought a Wii U off Ebay "the 32gb deluxe"
but it did not come with any controllers or the tablet gamepad
NSMBU is the first game I am getting when my Wii U gets here next week
then I am getting Batman Arkham City AA

I cannot afford "or find" a tablet gamepad right now, so either I get the Pro Controller, or the Wiimote/nunchuck/motion plus.

Other than telling me to get the tablet gamepad, which controller should I get for now?

Ummm, I'm not sure you can do anything without the Gamepad Tablet.

You pretty much got screwed.

I don't even think you can use the console without the pad.

But with those games, get the Wiimote/nunchuck.

you can't even set up the system without the tablet. So, you need the tablet.

How much did you pay for the system alone?

A signature? What would I want that for?
heh, not like anyone actually reads these.

black ops 2 can use the pro-controller, I've heard.

I doubt the other games use it.

Wow, why would you buy the system without the gamepad? That's a complete waste of money. Thankfully NSMBU can be played with the Wiimote held sideways and cannot be played (for some stupid reason) with the Wii U Pro controller, so you're safe for that but I don't know if you can even set up the system without the gamepad...

I read on this site that Mario doesn't support the Pro controller. Though you can't really use the system without the tablet.

Wont you have some problems actually setting it up without the the tablet controller I thought that was needed but if not then you should get the UPro controller.

hope you got it for dirt cheap.. as other posters has said..no clue how you will even set up the system being its done with the gamepad. Plus the fact that the pads aren't even being sold by themselves atm.. quite honestly.. the wii u without the gamepad is just a very expensive wii... the tablet makes it what it is (IMO)
