This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is 34.95 on Amazon and may not be a deal for some but useful for others I think, this is the smash bros. gamecube controller which works on 4 generations of Nintendo consoles. Gamecube, Wii, Wii U and Switch, you will need a gamecube adaptor for the latter 2 generations, also available from Nintendo: store.nintendo.co.uk/nin…tml
This is the best controller IMO for smash bros, it's super handy that this will work across 4 generations of consoles.

£25 for a 19 year old controller. The Nintendo tax is strong with this one

Hasn't that always been the price for those?

Thanks, Picked one up. Will dust of the gamecube and feel like its 2002 again playing it with a new controller.

Also lets not forget . 1.26 Cashback through topcash back on the purchase on one controller makes it cheaper.

These are rarer then they should be
Nice price, I could really use a new controller on my GC.
Hot, These will be gone again by the end of the day, Great Controller, ordered for my u.s wii, i have a wavebird that i use just for Fzero gx but nice to have a brand new one, and with either the official adaptor or 8bitdo bluetooth dongle, these can be used on Switch as well.

Well it's a brand new controller lol, you'd pay a similar price for an aftermarket pro controller or something, given it's an official controller I'd say reasonable, £20 would be ideal though
They go 2nd hand on ebay for 15 quid. I sold 3 last week.
How does this compare to the Official GameCube Controller?
Heat as original controllers are so expensive now for some reason

This is an official one
Does this have analogue shoulder burttons? I want one for emulation via dolphin and that analogue/click button is difficult on non-official controllers.

I'm guessing because the original Wii (and too a lesser extent the Wii U) are so easy to hack and add a hardrive full of games. And the third party cheap GameCube controllers on eBay & Amazon are really really dire

Agreed. They seem to be 20-23 quid on Ebay for a used official gamecube controller without a box.

So for 25 on this its much better to purchase these I think.
I have 4 original GC controllers, and now have 3 of these re-issues, to be able to buy original controllers for a nearly 20 year old console which will work across 4 generations of consoles, plus you could get this to work on a PC using an adaptor is priceless for me, plus it's the best controller for smash IMO

Possibly the reason. I’m sure the controllers were more expensive than the actual console at one point.

And don’t even get me started on the official RGB lead same story with third party ones. Absolute tripe
Just been in touch with nintendo live chat, they confirmed these controllers are also 3m cable length which is superb. Super hot from me

Yeah that's one of the reason's I picked one up.
I have a crappy third party wireless one at the moment from Ebay. It does the job, but its clicky.

That's not how it works. It's a brand new controller, just based on the original design. Considering inflation, it should be sold for much more.
Thanks, heat and ordered!

I was going to get 2, one for me and my son, but I wasn't to be able to add a 2nd.

May try again under a new order.

Are they one per customer? Doesn't seem to say so like it does on the adapter.
People talking about the age of this controller clear don't play smash bros. Rubbish old controllers on ebay that have been through years of abuse aren't gonna cut it. This is the cheapest I've seen these in a while!

There is a limit, I tried to order 2 and it wouldn't let me, I'd try ordering it as a separate order. Failing that just make a new account, I pre-ordered 2 using 2 different accounts a year ago
Played smash for years with one of these. Great price, but honestly now prefer the pdp/Hori cube-inspired pads for Switch. Heat added!
Thanks for posting; we have added this to the Highlights section

GameCube controller that fits everything apart from a GameCube ...


It looks like it has a Gamecube controller connector. Does it really not work on an actual Gamecube?
Its a Gamecube controller with a gamecube connector, Will work on Gamecube, Wii and now Switch with either the official 4 way adaptor or 8 bitdo wireless adaptor (works like a wii remote) you connect either a gamecube controller, a wii or wiiu pad or Snes classic controller also, Gives a wireless connection from the device.

Yes I was joking I know it has a connector and can work I just mean the irony having a connector for the one that it’s named after ( the others fit easy )

Needs a connector for Switch, Obviously not for Original Gamecube console or Wii.
Great Controller though. The Analogue stick is so tight, Makes FzeroGX feel perfect.
Saw these today in-store at Game in High Wycombe for £14.99

Are you sure they weren't the Switch USB versions? There are cheaper gamecube style controllers but those are USB not gamecube connector ones
Edited by: "eddiechum" 28th Feb

Out of Stock! (They lasted a few more days than the 1-2 Days max i thought they’d last)

Not sure but I could swear they were Nintendo branded. Could be wrong, mind. I'm not a Smash player anyway.
