GameCube Controllers Now Work With Nintendo Switch

Nintendo’s latest Switch update snuck in a few surprises including that it now supports GameCube controllers.

Players can connect the controller to the Wii U adapter and the Switch accepts it, which means they can use it with Switch games.

The connection isn’t perfect, as some features don’t work with the older controller. It’s missing a home and a Z button which doesn’t make it the most compatible. The adapter will support four controllers at a time.

The adapter isn’t easy to find, but is still sold by a few online shops.

One of the other surprise updates was the support of wireless USB headsets and video capture support.

Players can capture 30 seconds of gameplay and then share it on social media. Currently the update is available on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Arms, and Splatoon 2, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe added soon.

Are you excited about using a GameCube controller on the Switch?
