GameCube controllers compatible with Wii U thanks to new adapter

Wii U was originally intended to support GameCube controllers but the feature was torn from its innards, like the heart from so many of the console fan’s chests. But fear not, because a new adapter makes your dreams of GameCube-controlled Wii U titles a reality.

Peripheral company Mayflash has produced the adapter, which is currently selling for $16.99 on Amazon.

It includes turbo functions, fully-customisable buttons and compatibility with both Wii classic controller and classic controller pro games.

Now all we need is some GameCube titles on Virtual Console.
