while the Wii remote or nun chuck can be used on the Wii U, it's not necessarily needed, But you can use it if you wish to for almost any game you want.

He is specifically asking if you need the Wii-mote to play Wii games.

The answer is yes, I'm pretty sure, since the WiiU boots into basically a Wii emulator to play Wii games.
 
Thank you. And I'm a she not a he but it's all good. :yay:
 
Also, isn't the Wiimote Plus thing necessary? Like the Wii U won't recognize standard remotes or something?

My Wii U recognizes both my original Wiimote and the Wiimote Plus. All of my accessories work with no problem too.

You need the Wiimote Plus for any WiiU games can have use the Wiimote as a controller, such as New Super Mario Bros. U.
