RETRO SALVATION (Smash Files 33)
That's right - it has been announced that Super Smash Bros. 4 will be playable using the almighty Gamecube controller! Let us all bow down and praise Lord Helix, for truly he has delivered us a wondrous thing. Also, if that picture is any indication, we will not only be able to use Gamecube controllers... but Nintendo might be releasing special Smash themed brand new Gamecube controllers as well!
While it might not be the standard controller of the console (although if Nintendo truly loves us they will make it so with their next console), it is nice to see Nintendo acknowledging that the GCN controller is the best of their arsenal.
The only way this announcement could have been better is if they had announced Agnes Oblige as a new character in the game alongside it.
