wiiu-gamecube-adapterFollowing up on an erroneous product listing, Nintendo has confirmed that its GameCube controller adapter for the Wii U is only compatible with Super Smash Bros, and does not function with existing Wii and Virtual Console games.

Reports issued yesterday indicated that the adapter would be compatible with a broad selection of Wii and Wii U games, allowing players to use GameCube controllers in titles featuring Classic Controller support. Nintendo disclosed its mistake in a statement to Eurogamer earlier today, emphasizing that the peripheral is exclusively designed for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

“The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is compatible with Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U specifically – it is not compatible with any other Wii U software,” a Nintendo UK spokesperson told Eurogamer. “The adapter is also not compatible with Wii and we apologize for any confusion.”
