Okay I just bought a Wii U+Zelda Wind Waker bundle, yay! But now, as I'm an oldschool Nintendo fan and have missed a few console generations, I want to be able to play Zelda Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and other N64 games and I've read that I need to buy them in the Wii mode and run them via Virtual Console. Sounds a bit complicated to me but so far I think I understand how this part goes, at least in theory.
But now comes the confusing part. I haven't owned the older Wii console but I know there are many controllers for it. I have got the idea that the new Wii U gamepad doesn't support Virtual Console (or vice versa). And if I'm right, the new Pro controller doesn't either, am I right? So I guess I need the older Classic or Classic Pro controller. Right? But then I noticed that in some pictures the Classic Pro controller was hooked into the Wii Remote controller, hmmm. Do I need that too in order to be able to use the Classic Pro controller? And what the hell, there's Wii Remote and Wii Remote Plus, and I don't even know the difference! Then I noticed there are some kind of chargers for these controllers too! Nunchuks! Sensor bars! Do I need them too? Shit!
Heck, I haven't realized Nintendo relies on accessories so much nowadays, before it was just a spare controller or two for friends. And all these controllers and controllers-to-hook-up-the-controllers-with are suddenly sounding quite pricey as a whole. But I still want to play old Zeldas, so please, can somebody help me with this? What do I need to buy?
