    1. This is all part of the confusing mess of this, but these will actually be compatible with any game that supports the Classic Controller Pro because these are the ones with the wires that plug into the back of the Wiimote like a nunchuck. Real Gamecube controllers that plug into the Wii U to Gamecube adapter will only work with Smash.

      1. “Real Gamecube controllers that plug into the Wii U to Gamecube adapter will only work with Smash.”

        Smash-only for now, maybe. But I’m hoping VC will get GameCube games soon.

        1. I’m hoping for that too, but if they do bring Gamecube games to the Virtual Console and don’t support the adapter, worst case we’ll still have these.

  1. Yeah still have two originals in mint condition. Kept my GameCube for the Gameboy Player adapter. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could play our 3DS/DS games on WiiU?

  2. Hmmm.. A Gamecube controller with an actual second analog stick? I’m surprised this is my first time seeing these. Not too bad of an idea, the Gamecube controller is my 3rd favorite controller ever.

    I rather just plug it into my wiimote so I can play alllllll games with my game cube controller. Wii U is the dumbest technology Nintendo ever put to gather. 3rd party developers game cube remotes do more full filling to what gamers really want to play with and they didn’t even build the fucking dumb stupid wii u. Fuck the adapter! I want the DK controller for Tropical freeze! And I can play brawl again with the Game cube controller! Since Nintendo is too dumb and short minded to make their controller work with just one game.

      Oh yeah and I can play 1st smash bros too with this. I’m bout to go back to the Wii mode its better than Wii U’ shity virtual console. Wii U is more powerful than Wii is yet Wii has more graphical games in the virtual console than Wii U does. I can’t wait to experience Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 with the game cube controller. Its official Wii is better than Wii U!

    2. I prefer these to the adapter too (I also wish the adapter could be used in other games and, especially, in Wii mode), but to be fair, the purpose of the adapter was to give hardcore Smash players a wired controller so they wouldn’t feel like they were being hampered by lag.

    Wii is better than Wii u! Only thing Wii is messing is the game pad. You can play your game cube games, and it already has N64 games. Only thing messing is HD which is the only advantage the Wii U has the Wii doesn’t. I thought a next generation product was supposed to be better than last Gen not worst. stupid Nintendo is the first to make a newer product worst than its predsuccessor. What a damn shame. And the only reason why Nintendo built the new 3Ds is so that they can sell the 3Ds again without paying Phillips which sued them. They just added a dumb C stick to get people to think it’s worth trading.

    1. You could argue that some Wii games are better than Wii U’s, but the overall system is way better than the Wii.

      1. To add to that… if something is “the only thing” than that would be one thing, not two things… and I won’t get into the rest of the bad grammar, but the Gamepad alone is sweet and HD is a pretty big deal… graphics still matter to a degree and some of the best Wii games didn’t come out right away… so I don’t know… it is a step up, but only a slight step… the next system is going to be radical in my estimation… a radical improvement that is

        1. JTZ from tribe of Judah

          According to Nintendo Commander graphics don’t matter though. But the Wii had more features at launch than Wii U did at launch. It at least had Zelda at launch. Like I said what besides the Game pad is reasons why the Wii U is better than the Wii? Wii U is more powerful but why is it the most powerful console has the slower OS. It needed like 4 stupid updates and Wii’s OS is still faster. Also Wii was more prepared in R&D than Wii u was. Nintendo knew PS3 was going to be more powerful so they used innovation in Wii’s R&D to make it. Wii U’s R&D lacked what Ps4 was going to be like in 2008. Thinking 8gigs back in 2008 was good for 2015.

          1. You are right on those points… the Wii U OS is a grand disappointment and that is too bad. Perhaps I am gaga over the shiny new toy and a sucker for the HD, but it is only a more powerful wii, with a slow operating system. It makes watching netflix and other non game related apps, more of a chore. I am certainly not going on their web browser.

            I like the gamepad, but the use of its motion control are maybe one of the more intriguing aspects, but sadly one they have not adequately utilized. I enjoyed the use of the ship in the Metroid portion of… what is it, Nintendo Land or whatever… but nothing like that yet. It seems like Starfox might change that from the little I saw… but at this rate, that game will be here at the ebd of the 4th year of the system… a little later than i would have liked.

            It was/is an slightly innovative tweener system that is more of a Wii Hybrid, not it’s own system… the HD Sega CD with a tablet controller.

            A good stop gap, but I hope they have been working on another system congruently… That is the hope

        2. And if you’re wanting to correct grammar, it’s ‘then’ not ‘than’ in *your* first sentence.

        Sure and what on the Wii U is better than the Wii besides the Game pad and HD? I’ll tell you what is better on Wii. At launch it had Sega, N64, console games. Backwards capability was all one one screen. The wii went straight to the OS with out a update . Wii u needed 4 updates to move faster and it’s still dumb and slower than Wii U. MK8 loads slow MK Wii hardly any loading. Wii Had Metriod, Mario galaxy already. Wii could play virtual console games with any controller you wanted. Now why is Wii u better than wii besides the Game pad that can’t work on Wii?

        1. JTZ from tribe of Judah

          And then for some stupid reason Nintendo is just putting Donkey Kong Country on Wii U when I’m already playing it on Wii U. And as soon as I buy that Donkey Kong controller I can play it on wii or Wii u. But Wii U controllers, a more powerful console, can’t play Wii games. Wii is better than wii U. As soon as I get that GC controller, I can play Brawl on my Wii mode. Wii didn’t need a second screen to play YouTube but slow stupid Wii u needs another screen to play. Plus when going to Wii mode you got to click “OK” with wiimote. Then wait a long ass time for the supposed to be powerful system to load. They should have gave the stupid dumb slow Wii u more than 1gb for the OS but was too stupid to not think of that back in 2008.

        2. We are only 2 years into the Wii U’s life and it is already getting Zelda, Smash Bros, a Pokemon fighting game, a Xenoblade Chronicles sequel, Splatoon, Devil’s Third, Bayonetta 1 and 2, a new Mario Party, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, a new Yoshi game, a new Kirby game, etc. And Nintendo will eventually announce a new Wii U Metroid. In addition to that, it already got a new Donkey Kong game and a new Mario game as well as a new Mario Kart. And NOW add the fact that the Wii U has a way better online infrastructure, no friend codes, High Definition graphics, multiple controller support including Wii Remote, can buy full games digitally, etc.

            1. Yeah, they should’ve put at least 250GB in the basic model and 500GB in the deluxe. There are a lot of things the Wii U is missing that it needs like a universal account system. But it’s games have definitely improved at this point.

  6. Man, these look nice. I especially like Mario and Samus. But I think I’ve had this brand of GC controller before and I went through like 3 of them because they quit working so easily. I think you’d be better off getting the official Smash Bros version.

      1. I couldn’t because I’m busy with a lot of things. It’s ridiculous. I don’t think I’ll be able to game regularly on my Wii U for months because I have a ton of school work and studying to do. I don’t think I can get to you unfortunately. Only reason I’m here a lot is because I use my phone for this and I take it everywhere with me.

          I haven’t gamed much since August. I’m married to college. What’s your username? I’ll shoot you a request and you can respond whenever.

  7. Awe-inspiring these controllers look design-wise I am usually against buying products that aren’t the original from their branch.
    And this is due solely to the experience I’ve had with them in the past.
    Their duration is just painfully short.

    Wii u is dumb stupid and slow. 1gb for the stupid, slow OS? Please so weak the Game cube adaptor cant even work other than smash bros. That’s how stupid dumb and slow wii U. Slow Wii U because they thought 1gb for gaming and 1gb for the OS was enough back in 2008 for 2015. That’s how dumb, slow and stupid Nintendo is.

  10. Its botanical term is zantedeschia, and it can be related to caladium and jack-in-the-pulpit. The handle is created of black satin ribbon with black pins, and an ornate costume broach shimmers in silver within the midst in the royal blues, greens, and tans in the feathers. It is incredibly important which you hold the bouquet tightly while you add each additional piece or you may have to start across again when they begin to slip and shift out of place.

    Although weddings are traditionally a spring or summer event, a fall wedding may be just as memorable, in particular when the wedding flowers are appropriately chosen to enhance the day. It’s the all time favorite but next in line could be the stargazer lily.

  14. However, such methods may prove to be ineffective in eliminating some of the larger warts. The rationale behind this treatment is that you starve the wart of oxygen and light to kill it. Flat warts are also called juvenile warts, probably because kids get them more often than adults do. They can look like common warts or sometimes they are skin colored.

  15. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast because I stumbled upon it for him… lol.
