    Hello everybody,

    Can i use the Wii U Pro Controller synced in the Wii Menu?

    Because when i try to get to the Wii menu, it asks to sync a Wii Remote or a Wii nunchunk.

    Is it possible with a Wii u Pro controller?

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    Try it yourself and see if it's possible or not. If it doesn't work, you may need to hack the vWii to get it to work.

    Firstly, i don't have a Wii U Pro controller and i am thinking to purchase on so i can install the vWii. The problem is that if it doesn't work properly in the Wii menu, it will be a false purchase.

    That's why i asked.

    No. VWii was NOT changed AT ALL when it was moved to the WiiU.
