    I've seen several posts about the complications of emulating a Wii U Pro Controller as a Classic Controller, but several homebrew applications are able to successfully emulate the U Pro as a GameCube controller. Is there any way to get this functionality in a Wii game? Instead of having the system recognize it as a CC, can we get it to recognize it as a GameCube controller?

    Would there be any way to patch a game such as Brawl or Project M (which support GameCube controllers)?

    A quote from Fix94, whom developed libwupc which is used by the homebrew apps.

    I'd love to play Wii games with the Wii U Pro controller myself, but it doesn't seem too likely to happen unless somebody devotes some serious time to making it happen.
