This is a peripheral which will allow you to use Nintendo GameCube controllers with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
You can connect up to four Nintendo GameCube controllers using the Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U (name subject to change). The peripheral plugs into the Wii U console with two USB cables – you can use either the USB ports in the front or rear of the console.
You can use your existing Nintendo GameCube controllers to enjoy Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with the same feeling of control as Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
*The special Super Smash Bros. Nintendo GameCube controller shown in the video is also planned for release.
