Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter Only Compatible With Smash Bros. for Wii U

Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter

Remember when the GameCube Controller Adapter was announced for the Wii U back in June? Ah E3, such a joyful time for gamers. Nintendo fans were ecstatic! The release of this hardware would open up an entire world of new gameplay experiences spanning from new control options to (fingers crossed) the possibility of a GameCube Virtual Console on the Nintendo eShop…or so we thought.

Nintendo has smashed our hopes and dreams as they have now confirmed that the GameCube Controller Adapter will only support Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Yup, you read right.

Here’s what was said in an official statement from Nintendo:

“The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is compatible with Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U specifically – it is not compatible with any other Wii U software. The adapter is also not compatible with Wii and we apologise for any confusion.”

The GameCube Controller Adapter for the Wii U goes on sale alongside the game on November 21. Where you planning on picking this set up in hopes that it would support other games as well? If so, has Nintendo’s confirmation prevented you from planning on picking it up? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
