Nintendo quietly adds GameCube controller support in latest Switch update

We can now hook up the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U to our Switch consoles to use the fan-favorite peripheral - which is now compatible with four straight Nintendo home consoles in a row, it should be said.

Last week, Nintendo updated Switch to version 4.00 and touted how it added the ability to record and save gameplay clips as well as included support for wireless headphones. The GameCube controller, being a product of its time, obviously lacks a few buttons that the Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller have.

GameCube controllers appear as "USB controllers", and GameXplain demonstrates that users are able to navigate the system menu and even play games like Fire Emblem Warriors with the old controller.

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.

The only real issue is that the GameCube controller doesn't have all the same buttons as the Joy-Cons, which will make some games more hard or impossible to play.

They show an nearly bezel-less display with the new, taller 18:9 ratio and a missing front fingerprint reader. Earlier, OnePlus 5 is rumored to be unveiling on November 5 but later it went to be a bogus invite.

Another theory is that the long-awaited GameCube Virtual Console's arrival is imminent.

The other interesting thing about this news is that it ties into rumors of a new version of Super Smash Bros. coming to the Switch.

To this day, the GameCube controller is often cited by most Smash players as being the best way to play a game within the series.

"It was just a small game at first, since we wanted to get something out before the Wii U ended, but it kind of got out of hand, with too many ideas", Newey continues.

When asked whether the Switch would support GameCube games in an interview, deputy general manager Yoshiaki Koizumi gave the usual "nothing to discuss" company line.
