Less than a week after the latest round of Nintendo Switch updates, it’s been discovered that the console now supports GameCube controllers. The process was found by intrepid gamers, as Nintendo didn’t explicitly lay it out in the update notes.
Anyone who owns the GameCube controller USB adaptor that was released with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U already has the necessary tools to make it happen — once a GameCube controller and the USB adaptor are plugged into the Switch, you’re good to go. GameCube controller usage is supported by the Switch on nearly any game, although it lacks some of the gamepad’s functionality.
No word on whether Nintendo is planning to bring GameCube games to the switch, but either way this is good news for those looking forward to Brawlout. In other Nintendo news, the company’s SNES-themed 3DS XL is coming to America and is available for pre-order now.
