Your old GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch

Your old GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0 officially rolled out on October 21st giving Switch owners a bevy of key new features.

To take advantage of this somewhat unusual function, you'll need a Wii U GameCube adapter and a GameCube controller.

Watch Dwyane Wade, Kevin Love's hilarious handshake fail
His 12th reserve role will come tonight when the Cavaliers host his previous team, the Chicago Bulls , at Quicken Loans Arena. After the Cavs' 119-112 win over the Bulls on Tuesday, Wade shared a joyful handshake celebration with LeBron.

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

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? But with the GameCube controller lacking a "ZL", "Home" or "Select/-" button, using it will bring some limitations.

So why does it even work in the first place? GameCube controller support would also practically be a prerequisite for getting serious players to support any upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for the Switch, should Nintendo ever see fit to announce one. Hmm.

Gallup Finds Record Support for Legalizing Marijuana, Including Most Republicans
For the first time since that 1969 poll, a majority of Republican voters told Gallup they are in favor of legalizing marijuana. The number is the highest level of support in almost half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup .

However, it's hard to imagine that such an oddly specific error would occur. Unfortunately, the Switch has been severely lacking the usual Nintendo functionality during its 7-month life, which is surprisingly longer than it took to bring the feature to the now-defunct Wii U. What's particularly noteworthy here is that while GameCube controllers only worked for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on the previous Nintendo console, GameXplain has observed that the old-generation gamepads will operate on most current Switch games.

For the time being, it's just nice to know that Nintendo's strangest controller is going to survive yet another generation of gaming.
