GC Controller Adapter for Wii/Wii U

Do you have one of those cheap Wii's that supports no GameCube controllers? Well now you can connect your GameCube controller to your newest model Wii, even to your WiiU console. (console adapters, GameCube, Wii, Wii U)

Welp, that solves the Smash Bros. 4 issue.

not fond of that new controller beside the gamepad i take it?

Allot of people only like the GC controller for SSB.
DarkBlood  +   608d ago
true its what i used for my wii smash bro brawls copy as well as the n64 vc game, but i doubt this would be maimstream from nintendo so i'll have to pick up the wiiu controller pro to go with "smash bros U" when it comes out that is

Actually I really like the Pro controller as well as the gamepad, but I know a number of people who would all prefer playing Smash Bros. exclusively with the Gamecube controller, hence how this solves that problem for the fourth game. I personally would not mind either way.

Not that its a big issue but it still leaves the rumble not being there assuming it works a different way

i might not even get this even if i could find it in stores or whatnot just out of fear it might "brick my console" as they say lol

I wonder if the adapter supports the analog triggers for GC games even if the Wii already doesn't support GC controllers.

Well that solves one issue, now I just hope SSB4 isn't aimed for just casuals.
_QQ_  +   608d ago
Why would it be?
TXIDarkAvenger  +   608d ago
Because Brawl was aimed for casuals.

The creator said it himself that it was aimed for newcomers which isn't a bad thing but leaving the technical competitive play out was a mistake.

That was never said. Prove it or its BS

Brawl was a huge let down anyway, the hardcore nintendo fans won't admit it but it was. Smash Bros Melee wipes the flaw with it, I'm hoping they go back to way melee played because that game was perfect.

I liked brawl more than melee, Plus how hard brawl and melee are is only determined by how good your friends are, same goes for all fighting games.

Would this work with Wavebird?

Why not? The Dongle should have the same signature.

This thing needs to be advertised more, this is a definite buy. The lack of gamecube controller support was one of the things that disappointed me about the Wii U.
bigchad  +   604d ago
just got it today. tried it with blops 2 it worked but was just wierd without click sticks and one less sholder button. monster hunter 3 ultimate it works great since the L and R buttons are more comfortable and all buttons in game are on the controller. also hold start for home, quick tap start for -, and quick tap start twice for + works great. virtual console games work great too. now we just need game cube games on virtual console.
