E3 2014: Nintendo Confirms New 'Retro' GameCube Controller and Adapter Pricing
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Special Super Smash Bros. bundle to also launch
Following its Digital Event at E3, Nintendo has released additional details into the wild, with exciting news for Super Smash Bros. fans with a love for the GameCube controls.
Nintendo revealed the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U just recently, and has now also announced that it'll arrive (with the Wii U Smash title) at a recommended retail price of $19.99 — it will support WaveBird controllers. In addition, there's also confirmation of a "retro Nintendo GameCube controller" which'll have special Smash markings and a price of $29.99 — as we speculated previously this is likely that controller shown in the promotional shots for the adapter; tellingly, the word 'wireless' is not used once when referencing this new GameCube pad.
If you want the full set, meanwhile, there'll be a special bundle that includes the Wii U game, adapter and new controller for $99.99, which is a $10 saving over the separate products — Smash Bros. will have a recommended price of $59.99.
Are you excited by this news, and ready to put down the cash in the Holiday season?
