They already used the term "Super Smash Bros Edition" for the ones released during the WiiU era, here. So now they're calling the new ones, "Super Smash Bros Ultimate Edition", in order to differentiate the two.
I have the adapter you are looking at and highly recommend it. It works great for both Wii U and PC emulation. Never had any issues with it not working or breaking. Although those controllers look awfully shady. A good GameCube controller is hard to come by for multiple reasons. I'd recommend going to an older game store that has classics and see if they have any original GameCube controllers to buy used in decent condition or asking friends you know. If you cant find any that way I'd recommend getting the smash 4 ones from Amazon found here:
I know its pricey but it is way better than 3rd party controllers if you are trying to be competitive at the game.
This is honestly the nicest thing I've ever seen someone do on reddit, thank you so much kind stranger!
I would like this because I have recently gotten into smash bros with my friends, alas I do not have a controller, nor do I have the money for one, and I would greatly appreciate it.
Again thank you so much for the contest, I hope to one day be able to do something similar!
Just buy a smash 4 one brochacho.
They have much better build quality, though many serious melee elitists prefer the original controllers
So Hori and Bdp aren't Nintendo. They are third party vendors that just have a license to make and sell Nintendo products.
Nintendo IS still doing the adapters. It just took them a while to start releasing new stock. I just bought an adapter at a Fry's Electronics (an actual Nintendo adapter, not a backwards engineered one from a third party) about 2 weeks ago and they had about a dozen sitting on the shelf at the time.
Nintendo also still makes their own GC controllers that use the adapter. They are Super Smash Brother edition controllers and black just like the original GC controllers and have a Smash logo on them; they sell for about $30. These have been readily available in stores for months, but since Nintendo hadn't refreshed retailers with new adapter stock, it was useless to buy them.

Apparently the adapter is out of stock again on Amazon so I can't give a link showing the $19.99 price, but seeing that the resellers are selling them at around $40 and not the usual $80+ that's a good indicator that there was a recent influx of stock.
If proof is needed about restock, I can easily take a photo of my Fry's receipt when I get home from work.
There are usb GCC, but they are very unreliable because it's not an official Nintendo controller. The best thing for you to do is buy a nintendo GCC and a mayflash adapter.
Edit: You might be able to get a controller cheaper than that, I spent $30 on mine about 2 years ago.
Are you sure? [link] if you check that and zoom in on the middle and the top it kind of looks like its clear maybe
Interesting. Original generation GCN controllers only, or does that work on the re-releases and the GCN-likes as well?
The Smash 4 controllers are literally just GameCube controllers, if you're looking to buy something brand new.
Is there a difference between
Why is one slightly cheaper than the other?
Hey, thanks for answering. If I buy these two: [link]
About how much lag will I have?
Yeah there's some awesome rare ones like the Crystal Chronicles model that go for even more. From what I hear though, even these are decent.
Ebay is a great choice
here ya' go
Super Smash Bros. Edition GameCube Controller by Nintendo [link]
Freshly manufactured official controller.
Only about $25
You can get two types of official controllers from Nintendo-- the ones that were released for Smash 4, which are slightly different from the original GC controllers, and then the white Nintendo GC controllers, which almost identical to the original controllers.
Those are the Smash 4 ones.
That is the newer white controller.
Generally, the only differences between the old controllers and these ones are slight differences in the feel of triggers-- personally I don't like the Smash 4 ones. I do think the white controllers are an improvement, though.
Amazon already has it for preorder along with the adapter, as well.
Just an FYI they have controllers available on amazon right now. No adapters though.
