I have two old Wiimotes without built-in MotionPlus but I have two MotionPlus attachments for them. If I use the MotionPlus attachment can I use these Wiimotes with the Wii U or do I have to buy the new Wiimotes with built-in MotionPlus?

According to http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/631516-wii-u/64155948 it works and http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/wii-u-support-wiimotes-with-wii-plsu-attachment-or-not.452723128/ says that the wii u can't tell the difference. Even a regular one without an attachment will work on games that do not require the added functionality, however of course games that need the WM+ require the attachment.

  • I'll confirm that link with experience: I have used a Wii w/ MotionPlus attachments, and they work fine on the nintendoland minigames which require MotionPlus (e.g. metroid plus, and zelda battle quest). Aug 3, 2013 at 20:05
