Yo Nintendo; Please Produce the Wavebird Controller Again For the Wii U


Nintendo are making a lot of the right moves at the moving, obviously, this stems from the fact that they really cannot afford to make many missteps for the Wii U. One move that has gotten the competitive Smash Bros community and the Smash Bros fans in general elated, is the news that Nintendo will once again be producing the GameCube controllers for Super Smash Bros For Wii U.

I personally find it uncomfortable playing Smash Bros with any other methods, plus I’m in need of new Gamecube pads in preparation of Super Smash Bros For Wii U – so the news is welcomed. Having said this, I still have one complaint! Why are they wired controllers? Why not begin reproducing the WaveBird Gamecube controllers? Or better yet a Wireless Gamecube controller without the extra bulk?

I am a big fan of the WiiU pro controller. I like the tablet for offscreen gaming but if I have the option to game on the tv I will always choose the WiiU pro controller.

My preference for games that don't really use the touchsreen is to use the pro controller. However, I would love the WaveBird for Smash Bros 4.

If Nintendo did remake the WaveBird, I think it would be great if worked just like the pro controller, negating the need for a transmitter piece to be plugged into a GC to Wii-U adapter.

wheresmymonkey1630d ago

you can plug it into the gamepad adapter. It's literally just a USB to GC port thing. so it'll work.

LKHGFDSA1630d ago

yeah but there's a limited amount of wavebirds out there, it would be hard to find one new.

wheresmymonkey1630d ago

True, but i always thought this was about being able to reuse controllers you already own rather than buying more.

Personally i'd rather they released a GC shaped gamepad pro. Then you wouldn't need the adapter.

I was thinking about this, and honestly a new wireless gc controller would probably sell well, but not be the best investment. Why buy a $60 new GC controller if you can plug old wireless ones in, or better, if the old wavebird works, buy more of those

LKHGFDSA1630d ago

why buy a new one when you can buy an old one?
didn't you read the article?
the tech can be improved (signal, latency) the price can be lower, and you can actually get a new unused controller.

sungin1630d ago

yeah great idea,how about release another controller for platform that had no games.

NiteX1630d ago (Edited 1630d ago )

You're right it had no games, but now it does! So it's definitely a great idea I agree.

Geekman1630d ago

Won't it connect to the adaptor.

Trolltroll1630d ago

Yes the wavebird will plug right into the adaptor port just like it did on the game cube. The wave bird and the wired controllers use the same ports. Think this guy forgot in all of his trumped up nastoliga forgot the wavebird uses a reciever that plugged directly into the cube. Next time he should try to solve his problems with common sence rather than asking nintendo tofix a roblem they have allready fixed. Use your brain.
