Thanks to C3 reader Flynnie for the tip.

Will you grab hold of any of these controllers, or the Wii U adapter?

£12 for the adapter seems pretty good considering you can use it with 4 controllers. Will definitely pick one of those up!

Sounds good to me, will probably be £15 in the UK methinks. Not too bad, and will defo pick one up for sure! That said, don't have many perfectly working GC controllers though!

I hope these will be backwards compatible with games like Mario Kart.

Ooooh its been a while since I was accredited Smilie

I had a little foresight and picked up brand new Gamecube controllers before they dissappeared off the shelves. So i still have 2 brand new controllers, plus 1 that is still in good condition and my wavebird too! 

Although i am hoping there is a Wavebird that is released too!

I think i will just get the adapter although if they release that "Smash pack" with the game,adapter and controller then i will probably just get that!

Nice info, I'd like to see more character themed controllers like Samus, Link, Megaman & Little Mac. I've got my copy of GameStop's Smash Bros bundle preordered. You get Smash for Wii U, the GameCube Adapter & a special Smash Bros themed GC controller with a 10' cord length (I believe) all for $100 which is cheaper than buying each of the 3 items separately from Amazon lol!!

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

Yea i'd love a Samus/Metroid themed controller and a Link themed controller. Shit, i'd rather have these than over priced pieces of plastic memory cards that essentially do nothing...

My GC pads still work fairly well so the adaptor will be enough for me. Smilie
