The Nintendo Switch Now Supports GameCube Controllers

Nintendo has quietly added GameCube controller support to Switch

Hopefully, Switch owners haven't already thrown out their old GameCube controllers. Super Smash Bros. players could possibly use the GameCube controller for any future Switch version of the game. Users at GameXplain were the first to point out the added support for the GameCube controllers.

As opposed to the Wii U, Nintendo Switch supports GameCube controller input for any and every game in its repertoire. You'll be able to pair them up through the settings menu as well as by using the L and R buttons. The controllers seem to work with every available Switch game, though the GameCube controller lacks an equivalent for the Switch's "minus" and "ZL" buttons, limiting the functionality in some titles.

Though using the GameCube controllers on the Switch is fun, there is one restriction. Playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, especially on the recreated Game Cube tracks, is a dream come true, but there is another game everyone is obviously waiting to play with this sucker.

However, others are reporting (in reply to Master Mewking's tweet) that they're having problems getting up and running with their GameCube controllers. But, now the support is pretty much official.

There's no news on why this feature was added yet, but that hasn't stopped the internet speculating - mainly on whether we can expect to see a Gamecube Virtual Console on Switch soon. Me?

Nintendo Switch firmware 4.0.0 brought about a bunch of new changes for the console including video capture, profile and save transfers, and even hidden USB headphones support.
