Add another control option to the list for Nintendo’s Wii U. In honor of the coming Super Smash Bros. revival, due to arrive on the console this winter, the company has announced a GameCube Controller Adapter. Apparently powered by two USB cords plugged into the front of the Wii U, the adapter allows for four wired controllers from the older console to be connected.

Nintendo revealed the peripheral on its official Twitter feed:
