A Nintendo GameCube controller adapter for Super Smash Bros. Wii U was announced by Nintendo today along with a “retro Nintendo GameCube controller” featuring the brawler’s markings.

The GameCube system controller was preferred by many fans, according to Nintendo, since Super Smash Bros.Melee. The Nintendo GameCube controller also could be used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii, and the firm plans to “honor that devoted loyalty.”

An adapter that lets up to four original Nintendo GameCube or WaveBird controllers work with Wii U is being released this holiday season for those who prefer the GC controller.

The adapter will be available at a suggested retail price of $19.99 and the Nintendo GameCube controller with Super Smash Bros. markings will run you $29.99.

Additionally, Nintendo is offering a special bundle that includes Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, one Nintendo GameCube controller and one adapter at a suggested retail price of $99.99.

All of these items are scheduled to launch the same day as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U this holiday season.

    Si basecally they will keep making and selling gamecube controllers, nowadays, great news, any words if this includes the wavebird as well?.

    Also I hope this could replace the wiiu pro controller in all the games that support it, i prefer the gamecube controller, is the best nintendo traditional controller ever, imho.

    @all – just for clarification:

    The adapter is $19.99 (plugs into Wii U for 4 GC controller support).

    A Nintendo GameCube controller with Super Smash Bros. markings costs $29.99 (looks like you will still need the adapter).

    A bundle that includes Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Nintendo GameCube controller and one adapter will cost $99.99.
