Nintendo Reveals GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U

Super Smash Bros. fans, your prayers have been answered. Nintendo has revealed a USB GameCube controller adapter for Wii U that will allow up to four wired GameCube controllers to be used when Super Smash Bros. Wii U launches this winter. Peripheral manufacturer PDP recently announced a partnership with the Japanese company to bring a “GameCube-inspired controller” to Wii U for the game’s release, but purists will no doubt welcome the nostalgia and precision of the classic wired controller.

Compatibility with other games, like Mario Kart 8, has yet to be confirmed, but hopefully more details will be available at E3.
