You can play the next 'Smash Bros.' with a GameCube controller

49

The Wii U offers plenty of different control options, from the Gamepad to a Wii Remote, and with the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. that list is getting even bigger. Nintendo just announced that you'll be able to play the game with a GameCube controller — a favorite among hardcore fans — thanks to a new adapter. The company didn't provide any other details, like when the adapter will be available or how much it'll cost, but you'll be able to see it in action very soon; GameCube controllers will be used in the upcoming Smash Bros. invitational tournament taking place at E3 next month. The Wii U version of the game, meanwhile, isn't expected to launch until the end of this year.
