The adapter will be connect to your USB slot on the Wii U and allow up to four Gamecube controllers to play at once without any extra attachments or requirements.

Yesterday PDP announced a wired GameCube-inspired controller for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. which would work similarly to the Wii Classic controller by being plugged into a Wii mote, but now Nintendo has just made Melee fans that much more happy that they can use their GC controllers for three different Smash games.

No date or price yet, but the attachment will be out by the time Super Smash Bros. arrive this Winter for the Nintendo Wii U and will possibly make it’s appearance during the Super Smash Bros. Invitational at E3.
