The Nintendo Switch Now Supports GameCube Controllers

Nintendo Drops Huge Hint That Smash Bros Switch is On its Way

(The Switch doesn't have a Virtual Console of any kind yet.) Adding in support for the beloved GameCube controller is an encouraging first step, however - one that Nintendo may even have hinted to back in February.

To make use of a GameCube controller with the Switch, of course you'll need to use the USB adaptor, but the Switch OS natively recognises and utilises the controllers once they are plugged in. The pad will be recognized as a wired USB pad. 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. Then head to the settings for pairing the controllers by pressing the L and R buttons. Now it has been discovered that the update also enables GameCube controllers to be used with the console/handheld hybrid.

Sudden GameCube controller compatibility has particularly piqued the interest of the Super Smash Bros. community, who are taking it as another potential sign that a remastered Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is coming to the Switch. Super Smash Bros. players could possibly use the GameCube controller for any future Switch version of the game.

The police recovered 6 AK 47 and some nine mm pistol and around 500 rounds of cartridges from the spot. West Bengal Tourism Minister Gautam Deb, too, told reporters, "The area is Gurung's stronghold".

Another neat little nugget hidden in Nintendo Switch 4.0.0. It also makes it very hard to come back to the home screen menu on the Switch console but if you are really keen on going all retro, this should hardly pose a problem.

The update will also allow users to transfer their save data out.
