In an interesting announcement, Nintento has revealed a GameCub controller adapter for the Wii U that allows the controller to be used with that system. The GameCube controller is a favorite of Super Smash Bros players and Nintendo has confirmed that the upcoming Super Smash Bros for the Wii U will support the use of the GameCube controller with the use of this adapter on the Wii U.
The adapter plugs into the Wii U and will let up to four GameCube controllers connect to it. While Nintendo has not announced that they are planning to make GameCube controllers again, if proves popular enough, we suspect that we will see Nintendo selling the old GameCube controllers again.
Nintendo did not announce a price for the GameCube controller adapter for the Wii U and they didn’t announce a release date for it either.
