When the Wii was launched it came with backwards compatibility for all your GameCube playing needs, but the Wii U unfortunately didn’t have this aspect. However, courtesy of a third-party seller named Total Console and produced by Mayflash, you can now have your GameCube box-shaped cake and eat it with their new GameCube controller adapter.
Priced at $16.99 on Amazon, this gem is essential if you’d prefer to play with the GameCube pad. Simply plug the adapter directly into your Wii U and hey presto, those classics are just a button push away. Below is a description of exactly what the adapter does – let us know if you’ll be purchasing this in the comments below.

To connect it all together just connect the Wii Remote Controller to your Wii or Wii U console, then plug your GC Controller to the adapter, and finally connect the adapter to your Wii Remote Controller.
