Nintendo now says the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U only works with Smash Bros.
Whoops! It turns out that the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is only intended for one game: Smash Bros.
In a statement sent to Eurogamer, a Nintendo UK spokesperson said:
“The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is compatible with Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U specifically – it is not compatible with any other Wii U software. The adapter is also not compatible with Wii and we apologise for any confusion.”
It was thought that the GameCube Controller Adapter would support a variety of titles based on a listing from the official Nintendo UK online store. An official product description stated that the adapter would work with “with all games supported by the Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro and Wii U Pro Controller.”
You have to wonder how Nintendo could have made such a notable error!
