I feel this like desperate to gain more people to buy this console... however Nintendo is about to do the last move and if fails when Zelda Wii U be released.. then the Nintendo Fusion console I'm sure will appear.

+1 this is them admiting there console sucessors to the GC aren't up to par (controller wise at least).

is this a new gamecube style controller that's wii u compatible or is nintendo releasing an adapter to plug controllers into?

Good. Now BRING WAVEBIRD BACK INTO PRODUCTION for this!

 

Gamecube Controller is the best console controller ever designed.

Why? just why?

 

this is pointless. the WiiU pro controller is far superior anyway.

 

I'm guessing this at least won't have any games requiring the usage of this controller. the WiiU is already the console that REQUIRES the usage of the most different controllers, especially if you want to play multiplayer.  some games require this controller, some require that controller and some require yet another.

Yeah... I'm with Hawk, I don't see the appeal here.

I hope this is a sign that Gamecube games will be coming to the Virtual Console.  I hope they do better with the VC and try to add all the games that they can, licensing issues aside.

It's really for Smash Brothers tournaments because the Gamecube controller is the most popular controller when playing Brawl.

And charge reasoanble ####### prices. I don't know about the rest of the world, but in the Aus store Super Mario world is like $10.40. To hell with that nonsense.
