In a tweet from Nintendo of America today and in a video about the Super Smash Bros Invitational at E3, they revealed that they will be releasing a special Gamecube controller adapter for the Wii U, allowing fans to use the old controllers for Smash 4. Also, based on the picture provided by Nintendo of America, they will also be making special Smash Bros Gamecube controllers for this adapter, allowing players who never owned a Gamecube to get controllers.
Not only is this good news for Smash veterans as it allows them to use old controllers without having to fork out loads for the Wii U Pro Controller but it allows new fans to play on, what is arguably, the most comfortable game controller ever created. I will no doubt being one of these and a special Smash branded controller when the game comes out this winter.

It’s nice to see Nintendo is supporting long term fans and the competitive scene with this gesture but what do you think? Tell use your thoughts and we will no doubt hear more news on Super Smash Bros 4 at E3 soon.
