what would i need to play xenoblade on a wii u?

#1HolierThanMaoPosted 4/26/2013 6:48:37 AM
did not own a wii, so i don't have a wiimote. was thinking about buying a wii u classic controller, but apparently you can't use that, you need the old one that was specifically for the wii? do i need an SD card for saves, or does it work with the HDD? i remember hearing some f***ed up s*** about the wii mode

so right now i'm looking at 50 for the wii u classic controller and like ~20 for the game

Go to target. They have a controller that looks like the Wii U Pro controller, but acts as a Wiimote, Wii Classic controller, and Wii U Pro controller.

you need a game, a wii mote, and a nuncheck attachment.

To play the game you only need a Wiimote+Nunchuck but some people like me prefer to play the game using the Classic Controller Pro (CCP for wii).

But buying a CCP just for one Wii game is not worth it IMO, the game is perfectly playable without it. In the End game when fighting against the most powerful creatures in the game the wiimote+nunchuck combo may even be more efficient as it makes moving your character around and selecting arts at the same time a LOT easier. The only real advantage a CCP has is better camera controls and a more classic feeling when playing Xenoblade :)

Have fun playing the game, it's without a doubt one of the best RPGs I have ever played and it certainly is my favourite game of the entire (last) generation!

If you want to use an actual controller, you need a wiimote and a classic controller pro.
