Will it work with Wii VC games, so games like the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and all that?

Will it also work with Wii games where the Classic Controller is available, like Super Smash Bros. Brawl?

It wont function in Wii mode since its not a Wii product. The new controllers are not backwards compatible with old software

I heard there were some third party Wii U Pro Controllers that would work with Wii software. Is that true?

It will work with Wii U VC. but not with normal Wii VC.
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.

Let me clear this right here.

He is speaking of the Interworks Pro Controller U.

It is NOT a Wii U Pro Controller. I own one. Read up:

http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Controller-Wii-Nintendo-U-6304900/dp/B009O3WU5W/ref=pd_sim_vg_4

Pros
+Comfortable
+Rechargeable Battery
+GREAT Rumble
+Acts as Wii Classic Controller OR standard Wiimote (controllable via switches on back)
+Can be used on all software that allows Classic Controller or Wiimote alone
+Built in motion sensor and IR Pointer

Cons
-NOT A WII U PRO CONTROLLER
-Kinda short battery life
-Can be used as an Android controller, but only in Wiimote mode, thus limiting the available buttons


It's a great CC, but that's it really. I like it a lot, but I don't own a Wii U yet. I use it for my Wii.

The fact that it's not a Wii U Pro Controller, as nice as it looks, is what worries me. I'm sort of looking for a good Pro Controller that works with both Wii games and Wii U games, so I wonder if such a thing does exist, if by third party.
