Nintendo GameCube Adapter for Wii U - Super Smash Bros. Edition
Adapter allows for up to 4 controllers to connect

Many Super Smash Bros. fans grew up playing Super Smash Bros. Melee for the Nintendo GameCube system, and some will always prefer that system’s controller. The Nintendo GameCube controller also could be used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii. To honor that devoted loyalty to a classic way to play, Nintendo is introducing an adapter that lets up to four original Nintendo GameCube or WaveBird controllers work with Wii U.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't fall for the price gouges November 22, 2014
By Joe
I bought one at Best Buy at launch for $19.99. It works perfectly and is a fantastic product. I recommend it for anybody looking to play smash as the Wii U Gamepad isn't up to snuff and you can use your old GC controllers laying around the house.

Also the price gouges that are currently going on are retailers taking advantage of the item being sold out. Wait off until Nintendo manufcatures more before purchasing. Don't let a greedy retailer rip you off just because there are limited quantities at the moment

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product! Works just like you'd expect it to. November 22, 2014
I was lucky enough to find one of these shortly after the release of Smash Bros. It works very well, and I've really enjoyed using it. I have heard wave bird controllers don't work on it, but unfortunately I haven't the means to test that.

At the time of me posting this review, several reviewers posted complaining of price gouging, and they have a great point! Don't pay almost $100 for a $19.99 product.

However, it is worth noting that feedback such as this should be targeted at SELLERS, not the product page for a perfectly good product.

Wait up, don't buy from price gougers (if they won't sell at $99, no one will list them at $99), and within a few weeks, I'm sure everyone who wants one will be able to get one.

I have one of these adapters and my brothers and I love this thing to death, It works with my game just as stated in the instruction. Manuel. Please don't be fooled into purchasing it while there is a consumer based inflation on this wonderful product, Retailers are ripping you off and I would urge you to wait until it re-releases soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Great Adapter November 23, 2014
By Ian
This product does exactly what it was made to do: allows you to play Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U with GameCube controllers. Everybody's mistakenly giving it poor reviews because of the price caused by too-little supply, but it's an excellent product. It plugs into the USB ports on the Wii U, and lets you use the GameCube controllers just like in Melee or Brawl. It's light, and from what I can tell, solidly built. This is another amazing piece of hardware by Nintendo.

This thing is awesome! Perfect for me and my friends to play Smash as we always have. Having said that, DO NOT buy this at anything more than the $20 suggested retail price. Look around for one at your local stores or wait for amazon to get more stock so you don't have to pay more for this thing. It is worth waiting and saving money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for SSB veterans November 26, 2014
Verified Purchase
My buddies and I have been playing Super Smash Bros Wii U every day for about a week and I can't say enough good things about that game and this adapter. Setup for the adapter is as simple as you can imagine: just plug the adapter in to the Wii U, plug the GameCube controllers in to the adapter and you're good to go. Works with the new re-released GameCube controller as well as previously existing GC controllers, even Wavebirds! This is a must for any Smash veterans looking to play the new SSB with what is arguably the best controller to play those games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful product November 24, 2014
By Ryan
First of all, I really hope those who didn't preorder, will be able to get it at normal retail price again soon, I don't believe it's something that ships into stock just from launch only. It's 20$ retail so, just keep that in mind.

I got this bundled with my game, alongside the controller, I wasn't too hyped for having so many extra controllers available at first, but with 8 player smash, the club I started at the library I work for, and my gamecube controllers I have sitting around the house I felt it was a good idea. It is something to consider when getting this product anyway, if you don't have many controllers as is, but prefer gamecube, I'd prefer the Pdp gamecube controller attachment, it works as nice,(to me, at least) and has a good design to it.

About the product itself, it has about 5 inches of wire? not that bad, but, not that good either if you prefer wireless controllers nowadays. only reason I took a half star down for that, because I'm worried of it moving around too much when adjusting controllers. Not a biggy at all though. Everything works as it should, same controls as brawl and melee, though you could always adjust if not.

The other half star I took away is because this only works for Super Smash Bros Wii U. Of course I don't know if future games will implement it, but, I'm using this mainly for group gatherings mainly. I prefer my Yoshi pdp controller for the most part because I can use it on other Wii and Wii U games as well.

Again, if you have extra controllers still hanging around your house, or still get the group together for smash bros, there will always be the people that prefer the gamecube controller, and this is a must have for any vets that have that available.

Only possible problem is that the plastic is pretty light weight so it flys around if you don't secure it to something
