Question from B3tches_Killz

Wii-U Pro controller and normal WII games?

So I just wish to hear the answer on this. With the new W-U
pro controllers coming out, will those be useable on normal WII games or do I have to buy old WII controllers to play them on my wii-u ?

Also, a bonus question.
Will we get gamecube games as downloadable content on the e-store as rumored or not?

Nope, no support (first question).

Second question: it's been hinted at, and rumoured, and I don't see it as being unlikely, though bearing in mind that GBA games aren't really even on the 3DS store yet, it's probably a fair way off.

Research (me asking a bunch of guys at Best Buy to let me try it) has shown that it does not allow the new Wii U Pro Controllers to work with Wii games. You will need the Wii Classic Controller (or Pro) to play the games that supported it. Could it be fixed in an update? Doubtful.

As for your second question, it is still only a rumor. However, since the Virtual Console has pretty much been a runaway hit - I would expect it to be true at some point in the future. I just held on to my original Wii since I like playing my old Gamecube games in Progressive Scan Mode. That original component cable is uber expensive.

No you can't use the Wii U pro controller on normal Wii games and will have to use the original or motion plus controllers. ( first question )
No the rumour probably isn't true since Nintendo already said they're done with the original Wii console and will shift their focus to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Also It can't be true because the new Wii U doesn't have GameCube ports. ( second question )
