Yes for 4 player using a gamecube controller. Also the adapter is on sale for $33 shipped which is a crazy price based on ebay pricing

Amazon Japan does not share logins with the other global amazon sites. You need to make a new account

Tempted since I play tons of SSBU, but never owned a gamecube so not married to this controller, don't feel like creating a new Amazon Japanese account just for this item, and doubt warranty is covered in US on Japanese version to cover possible drift issues reported with these re-issues.

Will Nintendo release a batch of these again in US? It seems like there is still a market.
