That was a wonderful announcement trailer, Nintendo is really making more and more interesting videos as of recent.

God damn I hope they retail that adapter and not just keep it for this tournament. Although that in itself would make me wonder if they'd release just the adapter by itself, or bundle an adapter and Gamecube controller together. OR even if they'll do a limited edition of the game that comes with the adapter and/or controller! Like a Hardcore Gamer edition That'd be wicked.

Oh my gosh, I would love it if they had a bundle with a Smash Bros controller like the one they showed in the picture (or a cooler one ). That would be so cool!

So buying one of these. Wavebird, don't fail me now!

I too hope there is a bundle with the super awesome GC controller themed for Smash.

That video was so great, and that music though.

I liked how they made the adapter and controller look like it's the newest thing in the market. I don't really play Smash bros with that controller since I just use the Wiimote, but I know others use it so this is a plus for them.

Please let this work as a VC controller Nintendo. The GC pad is my favorite controller, I'd love to be able to play VC games, or even "pro compatible" games with this. Just release a new GC controller with an extra Z button and we're good.

Also wonder if this hints to the rumored Gamecube VC games finally becoming real? Wii U's lack of analog shoulder pads would make playing some games, like Mario Sunshine, harder.

YES!!

lack of gamecube controller support was holding me back from buying a wii u... so as long as I can use the gamecube controller on other games (specifically wii games)... im sold!

the wavebird is the true spiritual cousin of the n64 controller. it is great. it is all.

just smh at this whole tourney. they invited total randoms (the girls) and commentators (rapture) who were never even good at any smash game but they didn't even invite m2k. and of course the FFA/items format makes the whole tourney a joke. but still they should have invited m2k and esam/salem/nairo over rapture and the girls xD

The adapter really is an awesome announcement. If I would've known about this before getting my Wii U I might not have grabbed a Pro controller, haha!

Also, I'm betting the inclusion of items in the event is mostly to showcase items in a live event. Still, looking forward to watching.

I think they chose a nice variety of players to put in a tournament. From the list I recognize a few people but mainly Melee players and CT ZeRo. Wonder how this game will feel to Melee players as compared to the Brawl players.

Also, lol at the sensual scene and music of the controller/controller adapter part of the video. I think they knew that we would be excited to be able to use Gamecube controllers for this game. I was planning on buying an adapter for a Gamecube controller anyways, but it is great that they have an official Nintendo adapter that will, hopefully, be for sale. ^^

Where's Mew2King ._.

Also, I hope they start producing GC controllers again, because the current 3rd party ones blow.
