    Somwhere you can never find.
    I want to buy a gamecube controller adapter for my wii u but i need information like is it true and works.
    I havent seen any threads about this so i think it might be fake.
    I also want to know some information like can it be used on the wiiu menu or more importantly can it be used if the wii controler has no batteries.
    I realy want to play smashbros with my controlers that im used to

    heres a link of an adaptor: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&tag=technobuffalo-20&creativeASIN=B00BS520SG

    please at least tell me if it works

    Yes this thing works. how good? that I don't know.

    Can you use a classic controller plugged into a wiimote on the wiiu menu? this adapter will basically make the wii(u) think that the GC controller is a classic controller. Simple as that.
    No, it won't work if the wii controller has no batteries, since it wouldn't be able to communicate with the console.

    I have a couple of USB GC/Xbox/PS2 adapters... I wonder if those would work.

    Picked them up to use PS2 controllers on my PC for emulation, they work really well for that :)
