Nintendo releases update 4.0 for Switch

Nintendo Switch Nintimdo RP

After the 4.0 update launched on Switch, a Twitter user by the name of Master Mewking discovered that the Wii U GamecCube controller adapter now works with the system. It was a long time coming, and a necessary step to bring the Switch closer in line with the PS4 and Xbox One.

Last week, Nintendo released a new update for the Switch that brought a host of new features to everyone's favorite hybrid console.

If you can look past that, the option to use Gamecube controllers is a wonderful option to have especially if you have a bunch of them just collecting dust. 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. Is there a new Smash title in the works? It depends on the two USB ports on your Switch dock, and only works when your Switch is docked (it shouldn't be much of an inconvenience, the Gamecube controller is wired anyway). This means that, for instance, you'd have to play through Breath of the Wild without a shield.

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. The Wii, of course, introduced the motion-controlled Wii Remote, the Wii U was a odd tablet design and the Switch combines the best of the Wii and the Wii U featuring motion controls and a truly portable gaming console.

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.
