Gamecube Adapter No Longer Available For Australia And NZ

by Damian Seeto


Some bad news for people living in Australia and New Zealand, you can no longer purchase the Gamecube Adapter for the Wii U console.

The Nintendo Australia and New Zealand Twitter page announced:

“Due to overwhelming demand, the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is no longer available to purchase from Nintendo Customer Service.”

Much like everywhere else in the world, the bundle for the Gamecube Adapter that came with Super Smash Bro. on Wii U were launched with low supply. Only those that pre-ordered the bundle were able to get one without much trouble.

In Australia and New Zealand, people previously were able to buy the Gamecube Adapter for Wii U from Nintendo Customer Service. It was priced for $29.99.

Now that the Gamecube Adapter for Wii U is no longer available on Nintendo Customer Service, this means Australians and New Zealanders have will have a hard time buying it. Not many (if any) retailers have it in stock.

EB Games Canada announced a few days ago that Nintendo is no longer making the Gamecube Adapter for Wii U for the time being.

It looks like the only option Super Smash Bros. owners have right now is buy the Gamecube Adapter online. This is a bit risky considering the huge demand for them will make the price for it rise well above the normal retail price…
