8bitdo, a brand that makes controllers and other accessories for gaming consoles, releases a special adapter for Nintendo Switch. This adapter ensures that you can use your old GameCube controllers as well as wireless for example for Super Smash Bros.
Using GameCube controllers (almost) wirelessly on Nintendo Switch
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate supports Nintendo GameCube controllers, which is a lot of good news for many fans of the series. Many people have become accustomed to this controller, because they have been serving the characters from the game series for years with this hardware. Nintendo knows this and therefore releases versions of the game with a special adapter (probably the same one that also appeared for the Wii U with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U), but other manufacturers also know this like 8bitdo.
8bitdo is a beloved controller and accessory maker and has also released SNES controllers for the Nintendo Switch, so you can play your favorite games with your favorite controller. Now an adapter for the Switch appears with which you can use your GameCube controller as well as wirelessly on the Switch. The adapter connects wirelessly to the device while you plug the cord (or the wireless receiver from the Wavebird!) Into the adapter. Did you do that, then you can play right away.
The Gbros, which has a price tag of $19.99, has the familiar GameCube colors and has buttons that your old GameCube controller does not have, such as the screenshot button . In addition, the built-in battery lasts about thirty hours. You can also use this adapter on a normal Windows computer and it is possible to connect other controllers. But it is clear why this product is being released and for whom this is intended. Especially when you look at the release date: December 7, 2019.
