Description

Being able to play NES and SNES games on the Wii's Virtual Console is great (Thanks Nintendo!), but it's much more fun to do it with the original controllers. (And some games are much more playable like this).

This circuit makes it possible to use a NES or SNES controller on your Wii or Gamecube. No microcontroller programming or surface mount component soldering required. All you need to do is to solder the gamecube and nes/snes/n64 controller wires. The circuit is small enough to fit in an original controller!

Features:
  • Supports official and most 3rd party controllers.
  • Works on Gamecube and Wii1.
  • Compatible with the Game Boy Player and emulators.
  • Compatible with the Switch (combined with a Nintendo Gamecube adapter for Wii U). Firmware v2.2 or newer required.
  • Compatible with American, European and Japanese controllers.
  • 5 built-in button mappings available (SNES mapping, NES mapping, GC-Player mappings and more)
  • Low latency: 4ms max (¼ of a frame)
  • Firmware v2.2 (latest version). Updateable[2].
New in firmware 2.0: (Released in January 2018)
  • New button mappings for the Game Boy Player
  • New button mapping for Megaman anniversary collection
  • The adapter automatically recalls the previous mapping
  • Updateable firmware [2]
1 This circuit only works on Wii systems with Gamecube ports.
2 Firmware update is performed using a raphnet GC to USB V3 adapter (or any variation such as dual Gamecube or Gamecube + N64) and using the adapter manager. Older versions of this circuit cannot be updated.
