I don't see why not, I haven't come across any motion types and the spin is located on the shoulder buttons.

Can anyone confirm if the Pro controller works for this game?

According to the box, it doesn't work.

Nope. It sucks as I bought the Pro controller specifically for co-op play and found out it won't work with NSMBU or Nintendoland. The only way to play co-op is to have Wii remotes for additional players.

The Wii U Pro controller even says it will work with most Wii U titles, but definitely not these two.

It definitely doesn't work. I've tried it. Lame, but perhaps Nintendo can update the game with Pro Controller support. Everyone I know HATES the controller "wiggle" to spin jump.

Nintendo could in the future patch the game, to allow the use of the Pro Controller. But, until then you can't use it.

I wish I could use mine... it's a pain to turn the brightness on the gamepad all the way down so it doesn't shine in my face while I play in a dimly lit room. I refuse to play with the wiimote since that's about as uncomfortable as you can get while playing a videogame imo.
Whether you think you can or can not the answer is yes.

Yeah wouldn't be surprised if its patched especially since all you really need are 3 buttons for the game but it is a lil bit of bummer that you can't use it for multiplayer

At least the game is awesome though haha!

I know it's this consumers fault for not doing the proper research (apparently). But I bought 3 pro controllers for use with this game 4 player. So I pretty much wasted $160 in controllers for no reason.

Way to go Nintendo. You can only use the original Wii remote, even though it doesn't use any motion controls and it would be perfectly easy to play with the pro controller.

I really hope they make an update.
