Topic: Should Nintendo make the Gamecube controller adapter compatible with games like Wind Waker HD, Mario Kart 8, etc.?

I think they should release a firmware update that allows the Gamecube controller to not only be compatible with other games besides Smash Bros. but also to navigate the Wii U OS.

What do you think?

It would also be good if Nintendo let people use their Gamecube controllers on certain Virtual Console games, like how it was done on the OG Wii.

It would be cool. But since those games you mentioned in the title came out a while ago now, I doubt Nintendo would implement GameCube controller compatibility in them.

Plus, personally, I'm happy using the GamePad when I play those games.

I thought it was compatible with Mario Kart 8.

and to me, it wouldn't matter. I have the adapter and Game Cube controller and I still prefer the Pro Controller.

The gamecube analogue stick was perfect (erm..the grey one not the c stick!). There was no dead zone in the middle which made Super Monkey Ball feel wonderful. The octagonal casing made it really easy to find / hold directions. Bah, it was great. You didn't feel annoyed knocking your thumbs together or getting frustrated trying to find a sweet spot. I hope the NX controller has those features (as well as analogue triggers.)

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Lot of no here. I guess people don't want to play their games on a different controller.
Anyway, It would be nice if they decided to add that feature in, but Wind Waker and some other old games probably won't have that controller feature. However, I could see it appear on Mario Kart 8 in future updates.
Also, all Virtual Console games can actually be played by using the gamecube contoller.
You simply need to plug the GC controller into the Wii remote, and it bam, it works.

@Rexcalibr: I checked, and it actually works. The GC controller plays like the classic controller.

It'd at least give the adapter more use than just Smash, but I'd rather they make an updated version of the Wii U Pro controller with clickable analogs and two z buttons. I dunno, call it a special "Wii U Pro Controller gamecube controller" edition or something

Considering how annoying it must be for devs to program support for the pro controller, classic controller, classic controller pro, wii remote, and gamepad for alot of games, I'm sure they don't really want to go back and program in yet another controller

It could show up in some random update, but I wouldn't count on it. I don't even give a s*** about the GCN controller anymore, but sure it would be nice for people who care.

@shaneoh: As long as Nintendo keeps making Super Smash Bros. for their consoles, the Gamecube controller will never "die."

Yes, the Gamecube controller will work on the NX with at least one game.

Anyway, do you prefer the Pro Controller over the Gamecube controller? IMO The Classic Pro controller is better feel wise than the Pro Controller.

@Operative: that shouldn't be annoying, that's their job. i don't think many games support all five of those options, in any case.

of course nintendo should have allowed anyone with the adaptor and gamecube controllers to use it as though it's a pro controller, it's a damn shame they didn't make it happen. it's far too late now. i'll eventually pick up a pro controller because the gamepad is just too cumbersome in extended sessions. they know how to get money out of you, but they don't rip you off. it's a fine line.

@martinskrtel37: Just because it's their job doesn't mean it wouldn't be annoying. I'm all for more options, but I'm not sure programming in a controller from two generations ago should be at the top of their priority list. That said, if they did, I'd welcome it, since it's ridiculous that the adapter was only used for smash.

I'd like to see more support for the adapter, since Smash 4 (and apparently, MK8) isn't really a good reason to buy the whole thing. That said, many WiiU and Wii games probably wouldn't work with it, so the applicable instances would still be very limited. Still, the best controller needs more support!
