I'm more than certain official GameCube controllers will be developed and distributed to retailers, along with the adapters. Given that the new GCN controller displayed has a Super Smash Bros. logo on it, I wouldn't be surprised if those were the model of controllers being made. However, it may be limited edition as an alternative to a standard model that is available for purchase as well, or be bundled with the game or adapter, but they will exist, I'm sure.

Pic of the day.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a game where you collect tons of coins. Thus, it's only natural that many coins will appear in this stage… Wait, is this really Super Smash Bros??
If you collect 100 coins, you transform into a gold fighter! For a short period of time, your attack power will increase and you won't flinch when you receive attacks. This unique stage's name is Golden Plains and it's exclusive to the 3DS version.
This post reveals Golden Plains as a new stage on 3DS, and with its modifications in place, should play extraordinarily differently from any other stage. While it is not explicitly stated, it looks to be an auto-scrolling moving stage, like another Mario stage on 3DS, 3D Land.
The gold form players take when reaching 100 coins is inspired by Gold Mario (and Silver Luigi) from the same game the stage originates, New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 3DS, but differs in the fact it is not acquired by the Gold Flower and the player presumably cannot shoot Gold Fireballs. It is instead reflected in the way it increases the characters resistance to attacks, like the Metal form, and boosts their strength.
Nintendo's Digital Event at E3 begins in less than 8 hours, and I hope you're all prepared.
