I have been thinking about getting a Wii U for quite a while now, however its always been the cost of all the different controllers which has put me off. Anyway after eyeing up Mario Kart 8 for a long time i've ordered a Wii U and Mario Kart 8 for £160 which I didn't think was a bad deal. Controller wise I have: 1x Wii U tablet gamepad 4x GameCube controllers Now given the Wii U is pretty much backwards compatible with every Nintendo console released to date i'd like to take advantage of this for some classic local 4 player gaming, however from what i gather it depends on the game what controllers I can use with it? Wii U Pro Controller - Wii U games only GameCube Controller - Super Smash Bros and GameCube games via Nintendont with the USB adaptor So for Wii games such as Mario Kart Wii do i need yet another controller such a Wii Classic Controller Pro? or do some hacks exist for the vWii that would allow me to use the Smashbros USB adaptor for GameCube Controllers with Wii games such as Mario Kart Wii?
