A look at a rejected Super Mario Strikers ad
Let’s take a trip down memory lane… back when Nintendo was about to release Super Mario Strikers. Print magazines were still going strong, and there needed to be ads to promote the GameCube title.
The image above is one such ad that Nintendo was apparently considering. I hope I don’t have to spell out why it was rejected!

Images: Comparing Wii U and 3DS hardware sales to recent Nintendo systems

Wii U can use two GameCube controller adapters
Here’s a little bit of a tidbit about the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U. It will actually be possible to use two of these adapters. Given the ability to have eight players in Smash Bros. Wii U, I suppose that makes sense!

Images have emerged showing the two Japanese Smash Bros. GameCube controller boxarts. View them below:
Wii U’s GameCube Controller Adapter works with all games supported by the Wii Classic Controller/Pro, Wii U Pro Controller
The Wii U’s GameCube Controller Adapter won’t just be compatible with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. As stated on Nintendo UK’s official store, the product works “with all games supported by the Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro and Wii U Pro Controller.”
In other words, the adapter should be usable for a bunch of games. There are quite a few Wii U-specific games that support the Pro Controller, and there are plenty of other titles that are compatible with the Classic Controller/Classic Controller Pro.

This was mentioned in today’s PR, but figured was worth its own post!
