Best Buy says GameCube controller will be supported with titles besides Smash Bros. Wii U

20140716-234424-85464495.jpg 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?

Yes, it’s true. GameCube controllers will return to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Smash GC Adaptor

If you missed the huge news that bursted out into the internet today, we got you covered. As part of their official Smash tourney players selection video, the participants were selected and then the rules were laid out as well as the usable characters. As always, Nintendo likes to end their videos with an extra “bang.”

Well that bang was none other than the GameCube controller making its comeback for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U this year. As seen by the picture above, the GameCube controller will be connectable to the Wii U via an adapter, which then connects to the USB slot of the Wii U. What’s very nice though is that, the GameCube controller has a Smash logo in the top center of the controller. Those this mean Nintendo plans on re-releasing another batch of GameCube controllers for fans who loved using it during Meele and Brawl, or is it just themed like this for demonstration purposes?

What do you think of the announcement? Did your favorite Smasher’s make it to the tourney? How excited are you for the GameCube controller in the home console of Smash Bros? Let us know in the comments.

Wii controllers no longer be produced by Nintendo


A intrigued user who was trying to order a Wii game download came to some trouble. The Club Nintendo website noted that Nintendo was no longer producing the Wii Classic Controller, but you still may find some retails with a couple of controls in stock.


Unfortunately, Wii Classic Pro controllers aren’t supported on the Wii U, just on the original Wii. So if you only own a Wii and and want to play a wide variety of Wii Virtual Console games, now would be the time to purchase one.
