How to Use a GameCube Controller With Nintendo Switch

These controllers do not have a Z button or a Home button. Well, it now seems another hidden feature has been uncovered by Twitter user Master Mewking: GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch. Since the Switch doesn't have GameCube controller ports (remember the good old days of proprietary controller connectors?), you'll need to use some kind of adapter to get it to work. Users at GameXplain were the first to point out the added support for the GameCube controllers. Also, some of the button combinations the commentator was used to on the Switch controller changed slightly when using the GameCube controller. Just open up your controller pairing settings once the adaptor is plugged in and press L+R (the usual syncing combination) and off you go. But don't worry, if you are happy to use a wired controller, then Hori has you covered with its officially licensed Switch HORIPAD for under $30. Compatible games Legend of Zelda: The Ghost of the Desert, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and Splatoon 2. However, controls at that time were very much limited, making the controller nearly unusable with most Switch games, notes TechRadar.
