As you might already know from the news or from your own experience trying to purchase a GameCube adapter, they have been selling out in local retailers. These adapters enables the Wii U the ulitize both the classic GameCube controllers and the wireless WaveBird controllers to play Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U. There can be up to 4 players per adapter. Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U allows up to 8 players, after connecting two adapters.

The adapters, suggested retail priced at $19.99, has been inflated through online retailers such as eBay and Amazon.

“Not a single store in Georgia has any,” a local GameStop employee told me over the phone as I called about looking for the GameCube controller released with Super Smash Bros. Wii U. That’s explains why the cheapest one on Amazon is $89.99, and why eBay prices are going through the roof.

What has been selling out next is the Super Smash Bros Wii U Bundle. This is because the Wii U bundle includes the game, a Super Smash Bros. Edition GameCube controller, and the GameCube controller Adapter for the Wii U.
