GameCube Controller on the Wii U?

On, fans have banded together to sign a petition to send to Nintendo. Quite simply, this is a petition to persuade Nintendo into making a GameCube-style controller for the Wii U. The controller itself has been a fan-favorite during the GameCube and Wii era and used in many games, notably Super Smash Bros. Melee on GameCube and Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii. When the Wii U came out, it was unfortunate that GameCube controllers would no longer be usable on the new console. It was up to third parties to keep it alive and make adapters that allowed users to connect said controllers to use on Wii U.

SIGNED...I hope they succeed.

Make it so Nintendo, just in time for Smash Bros

Doesn't it...fell it love with it the moment I saw it.

If I could play Smash or even Mario Kart with that controller or something like it, it would be amazing

Probably best looking controller I've ever seen.

I just hope if they do decide to make one, that they'll make a more suitable D-pad. That was the only flaw the Gamecube controller had in my opinion. It was such an awesome controller, but the D-pad was just terrible lol.

I want to make sweet electronic love to that controller.
Make it so Nintendo!!!! Best Nintendo controller ever made in my opinion and one of my all time favorites.

This picture is awesome.

Gamecube controller IMO is the second best gaming controller of all time behind the 360 controller.

Funny, considering both have shitty d-pads. :P

It looks good but definitely prefer the pro controller, mainly because I feel that it is more comfortable to have the thumb sticks at the top of a controller in opposite but even positions... it's a getting old, arthritic thing lol

Man...I never wanted to make love to a piece of hardware as much as this right here.

I'm not so sure about it. But it would be a great piece of collection for sure.

If it's successful they could just revamp it as the new Pro Controller, so they don't have too many different controllers out there.

Andy15201712d ago

You make a good point there. I would definitly buy just to play the new Smash on it for sure

deafdani1712d ago

Wouldn't work, at least not with the current button configuration. One of the main reasons for the Pro Controller to exist is to play Virtual Console games, and in that area, it excels, because its button layout is perfect for any console that is emulated on the Virtual Console.

Try playing Super Mario World on the Gamecube controller, for example. It just doesn't work.

Cant wait! I hope the thing works out, perfect controller for smash!

-Foxtrot1712d ago

A good marketing plan would be having bundles for Smash with it included like how with Skyward Sword it was bundled with the Gold Wii Mote.

Would be sweet if they packed it in with a copy of the new Smash but I'm happy enough with the pro controller.

Would be a nice feature to have. Many of my buddies prefer using the GameCube controller when playing Samsh Bros. Hope Nintendo gives players some way to use it with the Wii U.
