Looking to potentially buy a wii u and have a wii pro controller. Would it work with the wii u like the other wii controllers do?

for the Wii U menu, yes. for Wii U games, depends on the game. for Wii mode, again it depends on the game.

The CCPro? Yes.
You know the gaming industry is **** when the biggest announcement is that a console can play used games and won't totally screw you over.

No. Just look on the back of the box. They will tell you what is compatible.

Wii U Pro Controller =/= Wii Classic Controller.

The former directly connects to the system like a Wii Remote or the Gamepad. The Classic Controller is attached to the Wii Remote and as such, not all Wii U games support it.

From New Super Mario Bros U, it only supports these controllers:
Wii U Gamepad
Wii U Pro Controller
Wii Remote

It doesn't support anything else.
