Game Cube Controller Support Sneakily Added for Switch

Game Cube Controller Support Sneakily Added for Switch

(The Switch doesn't have a Virtual Console of any kind yet.) Adding in support for the beloved GameCube controller is an encouraging first step, however - one that Nintendo may even have hinted to back in February.

After the 4.0 update launched on Switch, a Twitter user by the name of Master Mewking discovered that the Wii U GamecCube controller adapter now works with the system. But he did say one thing that got some attention.

All a player needs to do is connect a GameCube controller via the Wii U adapter into the Switch dock. Once you plug in the adapter into the console, open the settings menu and press the L & R buttons together.

Nearly a week ago, the Nintendo Switch released its system update 4.0, which added a few new features, including the ability to pre-order/pre-load games before they're released and even capture video while playing games. As you can see, though, the controller works perfectly.

You can then use your GameCube controller for games such as Fire Emblem Warriors. The GameCube controller, being a product of its time, obviously lacks a few buttons that the Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller have.

While it's hardly surprising that Nintendo would be working on Smash Bros Switch considering the popularity of the series, the company has yet to offer any details on what we can expect from the as-yet-unannounced game.

We'll keep you guys updated.

NintendoWorldReport has also confirmed that WaveBird controllers also work.
