Be super quick about it as the official GameCube adapter for Wii U is currently in stock at Amazon for $19.99. These things go quickly and are usually sold at massively inflated prices. At the time of typing this they are available so if you’re a Smash Bros fan with a GameCube controller you need one of these.
True to their word GameStop is advertising that they have now got hold of the scarce GameCube Adapters for the Wii U. If you want one you’d better be quick about it. You can either purchase it solo or as a bundle with a Wii U GameCube Controller. Which ever one you pick is up to you, but be warned that they aren’t expected to ship until May 1st, according to the website.
Those GameCube adapters seem to be selling out ridiculously quickly so it’s only natural that GameStop would only sell them as a bundle. Thankfully the bundle that’s currently available isn’t too bad. You can get the Wii U GameCube adapter with two GameCube controllers for $79.97. It’s just a shame that you can’t purchase the adapter as a standalone product. Anyway, here’s the link.
It looks as though GameStop have received some more GameCube adapters but as you can guess they aren’t selling them separately. If you want one you’ll need to fork out $79.97 which nets you two GameCube controllers and a GameCube adapter. They’re currently in stock so if you fancy this deal then get it now.
Want the GameCube adapter for Wii U, but not willing to pay the extortionate bundle prices at GameStop? Well, Play Asia is selling their own brand of GameCube Controller Adapters. For $33.99 you can get a Play Asia GameCube Adapter along with a Black GameCube Controller. Not a bad deal if you can’t wait for the official ones to be sold separately by retailers.

Still want the immensely hard to find GameCube adapter? Well GameStop will be offering a bundle on January 2nd. The bundle includes a copy of the magnificent Super Smash Bros Wii U, a GameCube adapter and a GameCube controller for $109.07. It doesn’t seem as though the retailer will be selling the GameCube adapter on its own, so if you don’t yet have Super Smash Bros Wii U then this could be the perfect bundle for you.
Capcom’s Resident Evil HD remake for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One is now available in Japan so Tilmen from Nintendomination has decided to make a comparison video to the original GameCube game which launched back in 2002. I will leave it up to you to determine which version looks better.
