    Now, I've heard this controller is japan exclusive so ill have to import it, but ive been hearing something about region lock being related to either this or the adapter.

    Now I just want to know, Would I be able to use the japan controller, on the USA gamecube adapter for the USA Wii U? I just want to confirm this before I buy it.

    Shouldn't make the blindest bit of difference. Hardware isn't region locked, software is.

    The NGC adapter isn't region locked either so if one imported from UK/US/JP to JP/US/UK it'd work perfectly, though there's a much cheaper alternative that also works with PC straight outta the box.

    I heard that, but I got my adapter with Smash - I got a preorder. I never had to deal with all of the supply problems.
