Nintendo Switch now supports GameCube controllers

Nintendo has quietly added support for them after the 4.0 system update.

If the update is on, you can press the Capture button. If you already bought the GameCube adapter for Wii U, then you may already own a great controller solution for Switch. We had to do some digging to figure out that wireless headphones will now work with the system, and today, we found out that GameCube controllers will now work on the Nintendo Switch using the official Wii U adapter! That does not mean that buttons will map where you want them, mind, so you may have to go into the settings and rearrange your buttons the way you like them. You can pair four controllers at once. Compatible games Legend of Zelda: The Ghost of the Desert, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and Splatoon 2.

Nintendo has dropped a major hint that Smash Bros Switch is on its way, with the Nintendo Switch now boasting support for GameCube controllers. Now it has been discovered that the update also enables GameCube controllers to be used with the console/handheld hybrid. The GameCube controller has no Z button on the left-hand side, plus there is no Home button, making it hard to return to the Switch's main menu from a game, notes GameSpot.

One of the things that the trailer reveals is that Switch owners will also be able to take a buddy along for the ride with a two-player cooperative mode.
