Hi buddy. For your question yes Wii U will recognize your controller exactly as if it was Wii U pro controller. So you can play games, navigate to menu... Etcwow!nice!
i was about to buy the wiiu pro controller (at one point i will)
here is a question .
can i use the gamepad, the wii classic controller pro, (they work atm) but also pair a xbox one S controller or a ps4 or both at the same time?
this would help a lot with my girls and i playing mario kart or smash!
also can the ps4 or xbox controller be recognized by some games as Zelda HD? (are they recognized as a wiiu controller pro?)
TY vm for your time and dedication to this wonderful console
