Nintendo Wii U GameCube controller adapter only works with Smash Bros

first_imgNintendo had to do some quick back pedaling and apologizing today after it got gamers’ hopes up about what exactly you could use the soon to be released GameCube controller adapter to play on Wii U.Initially Nintendo listed the adapter as allowing a GameCube controller to be used for any game that supported the Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Pro Controller, or the Wii U Pro Controller, but that turns out to not be the case. The adapter is only for use with Super Smash Bros. and there’s no plans to expand support beyond that single title. Nintendo also made it clear you can’t use the adapter with a Wii.Such news won’t deter dedicated Smash Bros. fans from picking up the adapter, but it does make an already expensive purchase look even more so. Buying the bundle of Super Smash Bros., the adapter, and a new GameCube controller will set you back $100. The adapter on its own is $19.99 and new GameCube controllers are $29.99 each. You can, however, use an old GameCube controller or even a Wavebird controller if you have one lying around.Clearly Nintendo has had to include support for the adapter in the game rather than it just working like the existing Classic and Pro controllers do. Therefore opening up support to other games would require a lot of patches for very little monetary gain. It could still turn out to be the case that future games include support, but it will be handled on a title-by-title basis I’d imagine.Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U is set for release on November 21 both as a standalone game and in bundle form.last_img read more
