I love the Gamecube controller, but this seems like a strange thing for Nintendo to invest in.

They really know they haven't been able to replicate the awesomeness that is the Gamecube controller.

Shocking, absolutely shocking. Nintendo is something else man. You really can't predict what they'll do.

YES.

As I got to the end of the video I was like WTF, why wasn't this mentioned in the other thread? This is way more important news!

YES.

If only the GameCube games could work on Wii U this could make me buy one, all the library of Wii-Wii U and GC together will be amazing without count the virtual machine :D

If they are going to "officially" make something like that I don't see why they did not include functionality it for all past Nintendo controllers. It makes sense seeing as how eShop has games going back to the NES days. I so want to use a N64 and Super Nintendo controller again.

Why not just release a Gamecube style controller for Wii U? Do people still have controllers from 13 years ago in optimal shape?

Edit: Nevermind. Nice to have options!

Awesome. I'm a bit disappointed to see that they're going the "items off" route for the latter part of the tournament though, items are the best way to play.
