The next Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will probably allow gamers to choose among different controller types, according to producer Masahiro Sakurai. Sakurai mentions the fact that the Nintendo GameCube controller isn’t the only way to control Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and his team “will look into ways that fits the Wii U.”

Although it’s a Wii exclusive, motion controls are almost nonexistent in Super Smash Bros. Brawl – would you like Wii U’s (or Nintendo 3DS’s) Super Smash Bros. game to implement motion controls in some way?

    • It’s my favorite too! It was just really well-made and planned out. I really liked the C stick as a camera since it let you freely control it like in Sunshine or Wind Waker

      • Oops, forgot to mention- they did make a new one called the Wii U pro controller. Like someone else said, it’s like the Xbox controller.. but the Xbox controller has the same button arrangement as the Gamecube. It’s the same shape as the Xbox, but they just moved some things around so it’s not exactly the same.

      • Yes, that is the design of the controller. However, I prefer the layout and feeling of the Gamecube controller better hence why I think a third party or Nintendo should make one with the Gamecube triggers and a complete remake of the GC controller.

  1. Not to be nit-picky or anything, but in ssbb you could shake the wii remote to do smash attacks… and i will forever miss the game cube controller. hopefully they mess up again so that we can hack the game and implement a way to use the game cube controller.

  2. Motion controls? No thanks, just because you can have motion controls, does not mean you have to use them. I will play with a Wii U pro controller as that is most like a NGC controller. Only put in motion controls in games where it would be cool to play with them but always have that option to play without them where possible.

  3. Naaaah, enable the Classic Controller Pro and everyone, bar none, will likely turn to using that, since it is the most similar thing the Wii U will have to the Game Cube controller, next to the normal Classic controller, which the Wii U is backwards compatible with.

  4. I’m not going to use them anyway, so if other players want to have less chance of winning; that’s all up to them. Won’t make a difference for me.

  5. I never liked playing smash bros using the WiiMote. Traditional controllers works best for fighting games, but maybe using the Wii U gamepad or the 3DS as the controller will be also an experience im willing to try

  6. I’m predicting that the next Super Smash Bros. will have support for the Wii U GamePad, the Wii U Pro Controller and The Wii Remote/Nunchuk/Classic Controller Pro. Leave luck to heaven.

  7. I don’t really want them, but I think they would be kinda cool in some final smashes, like DK could to that multiple punch thing he does in DKCR to the masks.

  8. Take that gamecube controller and hang it up in a modern museum where all the rest of the pieces of art belong, we won’t be able to use them for the Wii U (- _ -)

  9. Well, I don’t mind but they have to work on different options for a controller. Personally I don’t like the wii control to play smash. Seen the Wii U control, I don’t think it would be bad, but for the motion controls, they have to make it really good and comfortable for players. As for the Wii U pro control, no problem at all!

    Sakurai, if you do Motion controls, at least make it useful.

    • no doubt, man. I won’t be getting a U, unless the GC controller is made for it. I can’t play Smash, or Kart, without the GC controller.

  11. No motion controls. I say allow the use of the Wii U pro controller. Not as a necessity but as an option. The simplicity of the game is what makes it so great! I still play Brawl with my friends, we like sitting down and playing. Of my friends: 2 prefer the Wiimote, 2(including me) prefer the game cube controllers. Controller options: Wiimote, Wii U pro, the controller that came with the console. Just because wii U allows for motion control doesn’t mean you should incorporate it. Seriously please don’t.
