The official Nintendo GameCube adapter is still incredibly hard to get hold of so you may want to opt for the 4 port Mayflash GameCube Adapter which works with the Wii U and also the PC. I’m not too sure how it compares with the official Nintendo GameCube adapter, so you may need to do some research. But it’s ultimately a cheap and cheerful option for Super Smash Bros Wii U.
Good news for those of you who have been busy searching for a GameCube adapter for the Wii U as Amazon now has the Mayflash GameCube Adapter back in stock and it’s only $13.55 with free shipping. It may not be the official adapter, but that thing is incredibly hard to come by. This should hopefully be more than adequate. You can purchase it right here.
Apex has announced via Twitter that they’re teaming up with Nintendo for Apex 2015 with Super Smash Bros. It should be noted that this is listed as a partnership rather than just traditional sponsorship. It’s great to see Nintendo finally teaming up and embracing companies that are bound to bring them plenty of promotion.

Yesterday we showed you the latest Super Smash Bros exploit which involves two people playing as Pac Man using the trampoline move to bounce one another up to extreme heights and remaining untouchable. However, it now looks as though you can beat this exploit with ROB who can still reach the bouncing pair if they’re defying gravity. Be sure to watch the video above to see how it’s all done.
Time sure is ticking by so I thought it wise to give you a heads up that if you purchased Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U then you only have until January 13th to claim your free Super Smash Bros soundtrack and Mewtwo. You’ll need to register both games on Club Nintendo to claim your reward so if you have the cards still in the game case then it’s best to redeem them now.

Turbo Pasta, who resides at the Smash Boards, has discovered a potentially game breaking bug in Super Smash Bros. The exploit involves a team of two Pac Man players who then use their trampoline move to bounce one another up super high. By doing this they can not be touched and therefore when the timer is up it has to go into Sudden Death. The players just need to bounce each other up and stay out of the way of the free-falling Bob-ombs that fall onto the stage to net a victory. Hopefully this will soon be patched, but who knows? You can read more about this particular exploit, here.
