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?
