Japanese Gamecube Controller cords are longer than US GC Controller Cords?

Looking forward to Smash U, but I need to know this. I know GC is only 8 feet, but are the Japanese controllers longer?

If they aren't (I have no idea about that) you could buy a cord extension. I used to have one back when Gamecube was current.

Don't know about the smash version... wires are usually shorter in Japan, but when the made a white version of the GC controller for the wii in Japan, they gave it a longer wire than in the GC days.

Only the white GC controller that was released for Wii has a longer 3m cord. But you can buy a cord extension.

I'm just wondering why the Smash controllers have wires to begin with...

..I was going to say nostalgia as a joke but so,me thing came to me.

I'm not sure if it's problem in this day and age, but people complain that there is a button delay for wireless controllers (never noticed or tested it myself though it does make sense). As this whole GameCube thing is marketed towards the hardcore competitive side of smash they problaby want to hit all the points for the audience. So wired controllers was probalby thought out for that.

Awesome, I have the white one, and comparably to the original purple it's much longer.

I was asking because I thought all of them were like this but that's not the case.

They make cable extensions, I use them all the time for GC, cords are way too short.
