There is still hope for those who are looking to play Smash Bros. like it's 2002!

Nintendo of America has promised to restock the Wii U Gamecube Controller Adapter as well as the Super Smash Bros. branded GameCube controller.

According to a spokesperson for the company, Nintendo is doing the best it can in terms of ensuring that more adapters will be coming. The full statement is as follows:

“Both the Super Smash Bros. Edition Nintendo GameCube Controller and the Adapter that connects it to the Wii U console remain in distribution in the North American region. Nintendo of America is doing everything we can to meet the strong demand for these products, and additional stock will be made available and delivered to retailers. We ask consumers to contact their local retailers directly regarding availability.”

No word on when the additional stock will be available.

Man, you guys are really pessimistic!!! I read this and I was excited. I really want one of those adapters and I'd like another Gamecube controller. This was GREAT news to me!

It's funny.. I swear it wasn't that long ago that Nintendo announced these would only work with Smash and the internet blew up about how stupid that was and how no one would want these now.

Better then bargaining for one off ebay for $70

these things would REALLY be selling crazy fast if we got that as well because then you'd have non-Smash Bros. or Dolphin enthusiasts buying them all up.

I thought someone had got the adapters working with Dolphin?

ObbyDentDecember 19, 2014

They did.

I think they were smart to anticipate low demand, especially with the backlash of these things just being compatible with SmUsh. It's better than having a bunch of unsold stock. Plus, I think part of the reason they became hard to find is when word of their high resale value spread.
