If you wish to place a new order, please wait until we reopen. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please stay safe and in good health!
IMPORTANT: This is not a complete list. If your controller or game does not appear here, it simply means that we did not get the chance (or the idea) to test it, or that no one let us know that it works.

1 This adapter only works on Wii with Gamecube ports! If you have a Wii U or a Wii without gamecube ports, please consider our SNES to Wiimote adapter.
2 Firmware update is performed by chaining the adapter with a raphnet GC to USB V3 adapter (or any variation such as dual Gamecube or Gamecube + N64) and using the adapter manager.
3 The cable color may change without notice. In particular, the white connector and cable may become black at some point in the future.
