A great mod for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.
A designer, who goes by the name Loopy, has created a GameCube controller adapter modification for use on both the Nintendo 2DS and 3DS handhelds.
"What I do to amuse myself. I re-purposed an old capture board,” the modder writes on his 3DS Capture website. “Along with the standard buttons, the GC analog stick is also mapped to the 3DS d-pad. C-stick also goes to Y/X/B/A."
"If I were to sell it, I'd just make a DIY kit (bare board), it would be very cheap to make," he writes in response to a forum member's question about making it public. "Selling it is probably not worth the trouble. Installing it isn't simple and I wouldn't want to deal with all the botched installs."
The designer is also known for the 3DS Video Capture Board that allows users to record or live stream gameplay from the handheld.
The controller modification is demonstrated in a video where Loopy plays Super Street Fighter 4: 3D Edition with the controller. Commenters online are pointing out how handy the work around would be for the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The title is slated to launch in North America and Europe October 3 and in Australia October 4.
