Third party Wii U GameCube controller adapter available online

Wii U Smash Bros owners unwilling to pay the current high prices for the official GameCube adapter now have another option.

As spotted by NintendoLife, import site Play Asia is currently taking order on an unofficial GameCube controller adapter that's compatible with Wii U, PC and Mac. It costs just 13.25/$19.99 and is due in stock this month.

It appears to be a new time and has not yet received any user reviews, so the purchase would probably be a bit of punt – albeit a relatively cheap one.

Prices for the hard-to-find official peripheral that arrived alongside the Wii U game last year have soared, with prices on Amazon stretching from 759 to 147.50. The accessory is out of stock at most other retailers.
