    I've been looking everywhere to find one, online and in stores, and they are completely gone... Does anyone have info on if Nintendo is going to be making more or where you can still buy them for retail price?

    I preordered from my local GAME 2 days ago and got one this morning :)

    Its hit n miss :(

    I managed to preorder one at a source that shall remain useless since Amazon UK well, yeah, anyways. Since the Wii U Pro Controller isn't region locked, this sucker shouldn't be either. I refuse to support those stingy bastards on eBay :creep:

    And yes, Nintendo will obviously release more, but they don't say when.

    I freaking paid £40 for Smash Wii U + GameCube adapter yet those numbskulls are willing to pay that much just for the adapter itself.
