GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U
●Launch: Holiday 2014
This is a peripheral which will allow you to use GameCube controllers with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
You can connect up to four GameCube controllers using the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U. The peripheral plugs into the Wii U console with two USB cables. (You can use either the USB terminals in the front or rear of the console.)
You can use your existing 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. GameCube controller shown in the video is also planned for release.
