  • Game Cube Controller Support Sneakily Added for Switch

The GameCube Controller Adapter now works on the Nintendo Switch thanks to a secret feature in the 4.0 update-and it works with ALL of the Switch games!

Nintendo recently released version 4.0 of the Switch consheld's operating software. Yes, I know that there are Switch Pro controllers that would obviously work, but coming from someone who has spent the past decade purely smashing on a GameCube controller, I became a bit anxious.

However, others are reporting (in reply to Master Mewking's tweet) that they're having problems getting up and running with their GameCube controllers.

The adapter is plugged into the Switch dock, then you pair them in the settings menu by pressing the L and R buttons. These controllers do not have a Z button or a Home button.

The update will also allow users to transfer their save data out. This feature still does not work for Mario Kart 8 says the message switch on the news channel that functions as Mario Kart.

Mr Rajoy has stopped short of dissolving Catalonia's parliament but will hold elections for the region within six months. Mr Puigdemont claimed the referendum result gave him a mandate to pursue independence.

It's virtually impossible to find new GameCube pads in stores, though, and if you find the adapter online, it will be for a steep markup.

Last December, reports swirled that the Switch would introduce GameCube games to the Virtual Console library.

Nintendo has just release the update for their Nintendo Switch and you will want to get your Switch updated as soon as you can once you hear about what Nintendo is offering in the new update. You're now playing with GameCube power. The ability to already use GameCube controllers could mean that we could be looking at another more refined and mechanically inclined Smash game like the GameCube's Super Smash Bros Melee.

Additional adjustments and features for a more pleasant user experience.
