I Googled

Saw http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classic_Controller

Used search bar still not too sure

Am planning to play xenoblades chronicles on wii U

Just to confirm
1. Use sensor bar
2. Use old wii remote/nunchuck
3. Attach old wii classic controller (non pro) to wiimote/nunchuck

If this is true i will buy the old wii remote/nunchuck

Thank you in advance

If you are using a Classic Controller with a game that supports it, you don't even need the sensor bar, as the Classic Controller can be used to navigate the Wii U and Wii menus.

Thats great news.just realise my basic wii u bundle does not have the sensor bar :(

Xenoblade doesn't need the sensor bar. Pretty sure I've never made use of it when playing my copy.

The gamepad's camera area acts as a sensor bar anyway, no?

Yes it can, but not until you get into wii mode.

I could be wrong but don't you have to point the Wii remote at the TV to even get into Wii mode? I know I haven't been able to get in without that, not even by using the joysticks on my classic controller pro.

I'm pretty sure you do need the sensor bar.
