Today Nintendo detailed the Wii U adapter for GameCube controllers and the new Super Smash Bros.-themed GameCube controller. In May, Nintendo revealed the controller and adapter, stating that they are designed to commemorate the launch of Super Smash Bros. Wii U.

The adapter allows up to four wired or wireless GameCube controllers to be used on the Wii U. Nintendo said today that it'll cost $19.99.

Nintendo is also making a new GameCube controller "to honor devoted loyalty to a classic way to play," according to its press release. The controller will have Super Smash Bros. markings on it, and it will be sold for $29.99.

Both the adapter and the controller will be released alongside Super Smash Bros. Wii U this holiday season. Nintendo will sell a "special bundle," containing the game, adapter, and controller, for $99.99.

During its Nintendo Direct presentation, the company revealed a new character and the ability to play as your Mii in Super Smash Bros. It also announced a line of figurines, called Amiibos, that can communicate with in-game characters. You can see images from Nintendo's presentation here.
