Amazon UK is cancelling orders for the Wii U GameCube Adapter due to a reported lack of stock.
We've had multiple reports of this happening to buyers in the UK, with our own Anthony Dickens receiving the exact same notification from the online retailer.
The email reads as follows:
We regret to inform you that we have been unable to source the following item:
"GameCube Controller Adapter (Nintendo Wii U)"
Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available. This item has now been cancelled from your order #XXXXXXXXXX and we can confirm that you have not been charged for it.
Please accept our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.
The adapter — which allows you to connect up to four GameCube controllers to the Wii U console for Super Smash Bros.-related goodness — has been rather hard to come by since launch, with EB Games in Canada even going as far as to state that no more units are forthcoming "at the moment".
We've reached out to Nintendo UK and will update this post when we hear back.
Thanks to everyone who wrote in to tell us that they had had the same email!
