Can the Wii U controller be used on Wii games, like the GC controller could?

Sorry if this has been asked and answered, I checked the FAQ and the Answers section and didn't see. Basically I'm curios if, for example, I could Play Mario Kart 7 on my Wii U and use the Wii U controller instead of the Wiimote, like you could use the Classic or Gamecube controller for it on the Wii. Or will I need to get one of those Pro Controllers or whatever they're called?

Mario Kart 7 is a 3DS game, so no.
More Zelda U info please.

No. You still need compatible Wii controllers for Wii games.

No, Wii games are not forwards-compatible. You'll need Wii controllers to play Wii games.
