This is also available for preorder in store, which is where I ordered mine just in case there is a midnight release. You get the game, the gamecube controller adapter for wii u, and the new smash bros branded gamecube controller. The bundle is $100, which is $10 cheaper than buying all three individually.

You already own an adaptor?

It doesn't look like it's going to be endorsed by nintendo but IDK.

Seems more like a gamestop thing.

Would be nice though.

Hoping the same, and I'd be surprised if they don't.  They had Smashfest, and have had a good relationship with Nintendo as a whole lately.  I think I'd grab this with the 20% GCU.  Hoping the $5 GC is available again, it was only for Smashfest folks last I heard (and that was a line I wasn't waiting in!)

Does anyone know if this is the confirmed box art, or just a placeholder?

No it's not... The Wii U doesn't play gamecube games, hence no gamecube ports like the Wii.

It's a real bundle and the price is MSRP... 

 

http://www.polygon.c...-holiday-season

 

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U controller bundle, consisting of a Nintendo GameCube controller and an adapter will be available this holiday season for a recommended price of $99.99, the company announced during its E3 2014 Digital Event.

Anyway, why do so many people want to turn this forum into a news forum? We don't need a topic for every MSRP bundle or collectors edition that comes on the market and it's why the official CE thread was made. Sure some people will be left in the cold, but what makes more sense to you... making 1 topic per stupid bundle that literally floods the front page or telling those lazy ****s to read a thread and shut up? To me it's the latter that makes sense, though I know someone will explain how the former is more logical. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Calm your tits.

 

This is still cheaper than buying all 3 individually, despite being officially endorsed by Nintendo.

ive never owned a wii u (will have one by tommorow) and i was under the assumption that there was a usb port or two in the system. if so couldnt they just make a gamecube controller which uses usb and not need the adaptor ?

It's $10 cheaper than buying all three, but $20 more than the game and the adapter, if you still have your Gamecube remotes. I guess getting the Special Edition controller will be a selling point for some people, too.

The Adapter is great for those of us that still have game cube controllers. The Adapter along is like $20.

 

But I mean, they could have just not done anything. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I wonder if the new GC controller will have a longer cable like the white one released for the Wii in Japan. I am expecting Wavebirds to go up again lol.

what im saying is that imo a controller that doesnt need the adaptor could have been sold separately. i have no problem with the adaptor but if you make a brand new controller theres no reason why it shouldnt use usb

Two sick looking box arts, but boy, I'm still not sold on the title of these games.

It seems like there is some confusion about the Gamecube controllers.  The wired one from the bundle will connect to the adapter which connects to the USB ports of the Wii U.  This means the entire connection is wired, which from what I have heard is preferred by "professional" Smash players.  It also makes more sense to make the end of the new controller a gamecube socket and to have a gamecube controller adapter so people who already have 3-4 Gamecube controllers don't have to buy 3-4 new controllers.  I'm no Nintendo defender, but this is an instance where they're not screwing people over, yet some are still finding something to complain about...

 

If you don't want to buy an adapter and don't care about a wired vs. wireless connection, at E3 Nintendo showed off some new Gamecube style controllers which seem to plug directly into a Wii remote just like the old classic controller.  Here is a link with some pictures and info about the wireless ones.  Gamestop also has these wireless ones on their website for $25 each.  That seems reasonable for custom controllers with character designs.

Hahah yeah the names are super weak.

 

I get that they are two different variants on the game so they need to specify but not really.

 

You could easily name the Wii U version something like Super Smash Bros ScuffleU while the 3DS is just Super Smash Bros Scuffle

 

That way you know which is which and you dont have stupid names like they have now.

I think the new ones look pretty awesome, and I know my fiance is going to want the Yoshi one.  I may pick up an adapter too for 4-player matches since I have a bunch of gamecube controllers around the house.

I just hope my wavebirds work with the adapter. I don't see why not.
