I thought the classic controller also played GC games?

The link is not to the official classic controller though.

Unfortunately not.

Yes, but It looks like it's intended as a direct equivalent to the official Classic Controller, so I'd expect the functionality to be the same.

Yep, the Gamecube controller has the widest compatibility.

Great, thank you.

it depends on the game. look it up on Nintendo/shop or wherever. it should say on the box/download page or in the Wii shop.
I have the Wii classic attached to the wimote and play n64/nes/SNES games I have with it under virtual console. in fact its needed for mario64.

of course if you at using the Wii in GC mode (disc) for that version then use a GC controller.
if using the Wii version of resident evil then just use the normal controls?

Well I wanted to be able to play virtual console games, gamecube games, n64 games, and the wii version of resident evil, so rather than buy two controllers, I bought a replica gamecube controller which should do it all right?

It will all depend on the game with Wii games and WiiWare games. I would still buy a WiiMote for Wii games though.
GC mode and Virtual console games should be fine I would have thought.

Hi, Ok I bought Zelda Ocarina of Time, and it's telling me to plug the classic controller into the wii remote? I have the GC controller plugged into the port on the Wii but it still won't let me play. Any ideas?

It says on screen to plug a classic controller into the wii remote or press A to go back.

If I press A on the GC replica controller, it takes me back to the menu so the GC controller is registering.

Ignore me - apparently the first controller port for the GC is nearest the Wii power button lol I was thinking it was the other end! Thanks
