You may have missed out on the Wii U GameCube controller adapter

It was always assumed by some that the Wii U GameCube adapter released for Super Smash Bros. would be a limited time type of deal, but it wasn't outright communicated that it would be this tough to find at launch. After ...

Capcom is haunting arcades with Luigi's Mansion

Luigi's bringing his ghost-bustin' vaccum-totin' ways to a new scene that's full of noise and flashing lights, and it's all thanks to Capcom. The GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion is being refitted for arcades, as indicated by...

The GameCube adapter will only 'officially' work with Smash Bros. Wii U

When Super Smash Bros. comes out on the Wii U and the GameCube controller adapter comes with it, you will only be able to use said adapter on Smash. That's the official word from Nintendo this morning, anyway. "The GameC...

One modder shows how to hook a GameCube controller up to your 3DS for $12

One of the only problems I had with Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS was using the Circle Pad for a prolonged use of time. I actually got used to using the portable's controls over time, but the pad itself wears on my thumb...

Take a closer look at PDP's GameCube-style controllers for Wii U

I think I'll be perfectly set with the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U, but PDP's line of GameCube-inspired controllers (known officially as "Wired Fight Pads") are another valid option. Courtesy of Amazon, we now have ...

A guy by the name of Loopy previously came out with video capture boards for 3DS, and now he's back with another cool project: a GameCube controller adapter. Why? Because he can. Here's a demonstration of Super Street Fighte...

The Majora's Mask fan project is coming along nicely photo
The Majora's Mask fan project is coming along nicely
by Chris Carter

Paco Martinez and Pablo Belmonte have been crafting an HD version of Majora's Mask for the past few years, and this new video is an update of sorts on all their hard work. Before you get too excited, this isn't supposed to be playable -- it's a proof of concept that is eventually meant to find its way to Nintendo to urge them to consider a true remake.

Either way, the art in the video is pretty stunning, and I'd love to see the pair work on their version proper at Nintendo.

Hey, let's watch someone clear Metroid Prime in 55 minutes

Mmm, Metroid Prime. One of my all-time favorites, and yet it's been far too long since I've last played it. For that matter, I don't know that I've ever watched a speedrun of the game in its entirety. This 55:53 single-segme...

[Update: Nintendo isn't sharing any other details about the adapter other than what we know below. Hopefully more details are shared at E3.]

When Super Smash Bros. on Wii U releases later this year, it'll include optional support for one of the most beloved controllers of all time. That's right, Nintendo's found a way to bring the GameCube controller to the party.

Nintendo of America tweeted the news, along with a picture of the adapter that'll make it all possible. There's no news yet as to how much it'll cost or when it'll release. We've reached out to Nintendo for more details.

A hot topic of discussion around our office is whether or not this adapter will include Wavebird support. Apparently we all like to do our smashin' from the kitchen.

This Skies of Arcadia statue is zomg worthy

As a collector, I often make up my own rules in regards to where to stop. I usually draw the line at extra merchandise from games outside of those I absolutely adore -- and boy do I adore Skies of Arcadia. This new 17-inch Vy...
