Before we start speculating what the GameCube Controller Adapter has the ability to do for the future of Nintendo’s newest console, let’s prolong our hype trains and see what this peripheral does for the Big N’s current library of Switch games.

You might be hoping that this functionality means that Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch will be out soon, but let’s try out some GameCube controllers with ARMS for the time being. In our newest video we give 1 vs. 1 (COM), 1 vs. 1 and 2 vs. 2 a try while juggling a few GameCube controllers.

Ready to give ARMS a try with this new setup? Let’s do this!


Thanks to Twitter user @MasterMewking for discovering this new compatibility.

Another special thanks goes to to Twitter user @Dark_Throwback, along with GameXplain, for making a video tour of Fire Emblem Warriors possible using this new function.
