According to the latest listing from Best Buy’s online website, it states that the GameCube controller will be supported with games besides Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
Here’s what the website pinpointed the details how it would work via the adapter and the controller:
•Play a variety of games on your Wii U using your classic GameCube controller
•Enjoy your favorite titles, including Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with the familiar GameCube controls you know and love
•Invite your pals to join in the fun by connecting up to four original GameCube or WaveBird controllers to your Wii U
So if you have your old reliable Wave Bird lying around in your house, dust it off, as it will be usable according to the latest listing.
The way it’s worded makes it seem that games from the Wii generation that supported the GameCube controller will be usable via Wii Mode, which was essential to many gamers who used it on Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
What games could take incentive in the GameCube controller usage with Wii U games? Big runner-ups will be Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World.
Could this mean developers can hop back onto the Wii U for a system to develop games on with a more traditional controller? Possibly, only time will tell. Will you be getting the GameCube Adapter?
