Pre-orders are now open for a wired, “legacy style” GameCube controller. It should be compatible with anything that has a GC controller input, including the GC, Wii and 4-player USB adapter. The price is only $20 plus shipping, which seems like a risk worth taking if you’re interested in using this style controller on your Game Cube.

At first glance, it reminded me of the very expensive (and long discontinued) Hori gamepad, however a closer look shows that’s not the case: The Hori is modeled off the SNES controller, while the LegacyGC looks more like a Wii Classic and Hori controller had an offspring. There aren’t any analog sticks, but I’m assuming if you’re interested in a controller like this, you’d be using it for Smash Bros Melee, or the Game Boy Player.
Obviously, the most important thing about a controller is it’s performance and without pro gamer’s giving it a nod first, you’re taking a risk buying one. Once again, at think at this price, it’s worth trying out, as you can buy 5 of these and still spend less than an original Hori!
