You Can Now Use Your GameCube Pad On Your Wii U
Posted by Damien McFerran
Isn't modern technology just wonderful?
One of the hidden talents of the original Wii console was support for GameCube controllers, but sadly this functionality was removed from the Wii U — along with the ability to play GameCube discs.
For those of you who simply can't let go of that beloved Wavebird, help is at hand. Mayflash — a company famed for its weird and wonderful unofficial peripherals — has produced an adapter which plugs into the Wii U and allows you to connect GameCube pads.
Retailing on Amazon for $16.99, the adapter offers the following:
- Built-in Turbo
- Compatibility with all games supported by the Wii Classic Controller
- Compatibility with all games supported by the Wii Classic Controller Pro
- A, B, X, Y, L, R and Z can be customized
Will you be picking one of these up, or is the Wii U Pro Controller just fine for your needs?
