Use a PS2 controller as a Wii Classic Controller – Playstation 2 PS2 to Wii Controller Adapter (13.5CM-Cable) Reviews

The adapter is detected right away, works as advertised. No problems with 3rd party controllers (Hori and Sega)
Button mapping is unusual - you will want to change the mapping in most games. R1/R2 are not mappable (The PS controller has more buttons than the original Wii classic controller, and there are no hardware switches on the adapter to choose which buttons are used)
I bought this game to use in Tatsunoko vs Capcom. The item works well if you don't mind remapping the buttons in the game. The default mapping of a Playstation controller in TvC is as follows: square = x triangle = L x = a O = r L1 = y L2 = b R1 = n/a R2 = n/a Select = - Start = + The game was designed for the Classic Controller and not the Classic Controller Pro controller. I can not confirm if the R1/R2 buttons are usable in games that support the Classic Pro controller.
Play with the Button Configuration in your game and this adapter does a fine job of allowing a Playstation controller to be used instead of a classic controller.
