Kotaku - What Happens When A SNES Controller Is Eaten By A Wii U Controller

Kotaku - A few months back, I gasped in horror at the sight of a third-party Wii U pad that, from the hideous photoshop promotional image, looked to be a sin against everything Nintendo held dear about controllers.

Well, for the past week I've been using the thing. It's called the Controller Pro U. Combining the functionality of a Wii Remote with that of a Wii Classic Controller in the one device, there's not much hideous about it. In the flesh, it looks a lot better than it did in that mock-up.

The story is too old to be commented.

It says it works with Wii games. Can this work with games like Twilight Princes/Skyward Sword o Super Mario Galaxy?

It would only work with games that previously supported the classic controller. So none of the games you've listed would be compatible. That said, I couldn't imagine playing Skyward Sword with a traditional controller anyway.

Wouldn't mind trying this controller out either. Could be optimized for an even better feel. The Snes controller really laid out the foundation to how controllers should be. Than Sony helped move that design along. Heck I wouldn't mind if Sony and Nintendo used the same controller since they helped one another get the design to where it's at now. Two sticks, d pad, 4 face buttons and so on. But props to even the older controllers out there non the less, they played a part as well in defining a gaming controller.

I wonder why the Wii U Pro Controller cannot work with VC games at all. I am hoping that is something they can address with a future patch. I have a classic controller so I can use that, but I would much rather use my Wii U Pro Controller instead. That's what I love so much about this 3rd party one, although the author did say that he had trouble getting it to work as a Wii U Pro Controller..

I personally found it really cool that this thing can double as a Wii remote (or so I read). That's a pretty interesting upgrade over the standard Pro controller.
