The Nintendo Switch recently had a huge update in the form of Version 4.0. What wasn’t made clear is this update actually allows the Nintendo Switch to support GameCube controllers via the adapter. The news was discovered by Twitter user Master Mewking and was put to the test by GameXplain. You can use the GameCube controller with all Nintendo Switch games right now using the adapter. Could it be that the GameCube Virtual Console, which has been rumoured for a while, is on its way?
“The GameCube Controller Adapter now works on the Nintendo Switch thanks to a secret feature in the 4.0 update–and it works with ALL of the Switch games! Could this mean GCN Virtual Console might be on the way…or Super Smash Bros. Switch?! Who knows, but we demonstrate how the Wii U USB controller adapter works so you can try it for yourselves!”
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
