GameCube Adapter Works on Nintendo Switch! - We Show it Off!

Awesome DIY Nintendo Switch

Since Nintendo made the Switch compatible with GameCube and didn't release the information, could this mean they're planning something to utilize the controllers?

Nintendo hasn't publicly announced it, but GameCube controllers are now supported by Switch as of the console's recent 4.0 update.

Now, why would that be such a big deal you ask?

In order to use the controllers, you will need the special adapter that was released for the Wii U. There's a lot of smoke around that particular fire, but buying into that theory does require you to believe that Nintendo is ready to unveil the Switch's VC service sometime in the near future. Nintendo has specifically enabled GameCube pads.

Once that is plugged into the Switch's dock, the controller is paired in the settings menu by pressing their L and R buttons.

The Lord & Taylor location will continue to operate in the whole building through holiday 2018. It could also add 20 WeWork locations in HBC businesses around the world, Baker said.

We can only speculate as to why this stealthily added feature has arrived-the main two predictions that can come out of this are a possible Smash Bros. installment for Nintendo Switch (Melee purists love their GameCube controllers), or classic GameCube games arriving on the console, perhaps through a (still non-existent) Virtual Console service for Switch. This will make navigating back to the Switch's home page quite tricky.

When you move over to the 3DS and Wii U you'll find the number of games on sale gets longer and a little more Halloween-inspired, while the discounts are also more significant.

For more details on update 4.0 head to Nintendo and continue to keep your fingers crossed for a new Switch version of Super Smash Brothers.
