Gamecube Controller Adapter for Wii U Announced

by John "ANC" Barnes on

Old controllers never die.

Today Nintendo posted a video announcing the participants and the rules for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. tournament being held at E3. The Facebook post teased “a special announcement included [in the video] that Super Smash Bros. fans will really want to see.” That announcement is the Gamecube Controller Adapter for Wii U, making three consoles in a row where the exact same controllers can be used.

No word on whether it’s compatible with Wii mode, though my guess is it sadly isn’t, but it will be interesting to see what Wii U games besides *Smash* will support it.
