Officially licensed Gamecube controller adapter for Wii U unveiled for Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo of America announced on Twitter today that an officially licensed USB adapter will be released for Wii U that allows Super Smash Bros. to be played with Gamecube controllers.

The adapter will allow for up to four Gamecube controllers to be connected to a Wii U console via USB. It’s not clear whether the peripheral will support Wavebird controllers or whether additional games other than Super Smash Bros. will feature Gamecube controller support.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has a huge range of control options including the Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Classic Controller, Wii Remotes and Wii U GamePad. But you won’t be needing any of those now that the Gamecube controller is an option.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U launches this Summer and will be playable at E3.
