Super Mario RPG controller question

#1dbzbadman06Posted 5/6/2013 6:00:38 PM
So I played SMRPG back in the day and I would love to take advantage of the Club Nintendo offer to get it for 200 coins. I want to get it on the Wii U so I can upgrade to play on the gamepad and for miiverse (whenever that happens).

My problem is that I don't have a classic controller of any kind and obviously I cannot use a gamecube controller (not even sure it was an option anyway). It wouldn't kill me to buy a classic controller but I'd rather have a Wii U Pro controller so it's compatible with future games. Does anyone know if the Wii U Pro controller would work with SMRPG in wii mode?

Ugh... I just wish the game would get a Wii U release already so I wouldn't have this issue. Blah!

Yeah, it's stupid. Bonehead move on Nintendo's part, and honestly a huge pet-peeve.

Ugh, how annoying... maybe I'll pick it up and just hold onto it until it gets a Wii U release. It'll happen eventually, just not sure it'll be this decade....

Thanks for the quick responses everyone! Feel free to add me as a 3DS and/or Wii U friend!
