Not in Wii games.

The Wii had a N64 virtual console.

For some reason, the Wii U does not.

But it can still access those games in Wii mode.

The gamecube adapter works with one game and one game only. Nintendo is so far unwilling to patch the OS to allow everything to support it. Of course the smarter design would have been to just make a pro-controller shaped like a GC controller but that would make too much sense for nintendo.

*shrugs* They may change it later. Miyamoto has mentioned in an interview that the Wii U is actually capable to use more than one gamepad at a time too, but because there's no demand for that they haven't bothered doing the legwork to code and implement it yet.

wait then one extra question...not really relating to the topic...but does the ''new'' gamecube cotroller (smash 4 controller) work on the classic gamecube??

i was thinking about rebuying one and it would be nice to have a new fresh controller with it
