Headline Of The Week
There is a saying that ‘old habits die hard sometimes’ – and for Nintendo fans, one of those habits is using a Gamecube controller in preference of nearly every other peripheral the Big N has thrown at consumers; nunchucks and touchscreen pads included. Despite it being nearly a decade since they were originally released, Gamecube controllers are still first choice for many Nintendo players – especially competitive players of Super Smash Bros. The Big N has seen fit to capitalize on this long lasting love affair with the chunky peripheral, and have unveiled a official USB adapter that allows Gamecube controllers to work with a Wii U.
So far Nintendo have marketed the four port adapter exclusively for Super Smash Bros For Wii U, and have not revealed whether it will allow Gamecube controller support for other Wii U games (the console does not natively support the controllers like the Wii did). The release of an adapter may pave the way however for GC titles to appear on the Wii U Virtual Console.
