Your old GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch

Your old GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch

These controllers do not have a Z button or a Home button. 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 suggests that other USB controllers will be added to the mix at some point, though for the time being, it looks like the GameCube controller is the only one supported. Once plugged in, the controllers can be synced through the settings menu by pressing the L and R buttons. This move at least suggests that it could be on its way sooner rather than later, and that those concerned that they'd have to play it using their Joy-Cons / Switch Pro Controller needn't worry.

Though using the GameCube controllers on the Switch is fun, there is one restriction.

An example could be given by showing that while playing Breath of the Wild, you won't be able to employ your shield. Following the console's 3.0 update, there were reports that a third-party adapter could be used to connect a GameCube controller.

Microsoft Releases New Versions Of Windows 10 And Server
It's just early days for that, however, with subsequent Windows 10 updates adding more and more Fluent Design elements. But that doesn't mean the only thing worth paying attention to in the Fall Creators Update is Windows Mixed Reality.

NintendoWorldReport has also confirmed that WaveBird controllers also work.

It seems like controller support could be just that, although it only has fans even more convinced that a Switch Virtual Console or a new Super Smash Bros.is in the works.

It's unclear why Nintendo quietly added this compatibility, but it does suggest they may have plans to port over Super Smash Bros.to Switch and want to retain compatibility with the GameCube adapter and pad play option.
