Is the Super smash bros for Wii u controller itself (not the adapter as I know it's not compatible) adapter compatible with an original Wii or GameCube? I don't want to purchase used ones from Ebay because I heard about lots of Ebay scams.

  • Are you asking of you can run super smash bro for wii U can run on wii/gamecube via some adapter? Or if the adapter is compatible?

As @Powerlord pointed out, the GameCube Super Smash Bros. Edition Controller is compatible with the original GameCube and Wii. This is confirmed on Nintendo's website (in the same link provided, very last question)

Can the GameCube Super Smash Bros. Edition Controller be used with a GameCube or a compatible Wii model?

Yes, it can be used with these systems.

Sidebar: Always make sure to check the box before confirming your purchase! 3rd-party companies like Hori and PDP make their own "Fight pads" as well, but they're Classic Wii controllers without the analog triggers. (They have squishy triggers, but there's no analog signal, and that means tossing your shield or grab is delayed significantly.


It should work with both the Wii and the Gamecube.


If you are asking if the gamepad is compatible with the Wii, and the GameCube system itself, the answer is no. Both of these systems don't have the right technology to work with the gamepad controller. If this was not your question I apologize.
