Who doesn’t love seeing a modder put imagination to reality and make something snazzy? YouTuber Shank Mods has done just that with a pair of Joy-Con that are dead ringers for a GameCube controller, as detailed in an impressive 14 minute-long video on the topic.


Shank Mods goes over the process of coming up with the idea, making the design, and other tribulations he overcame in making the controller. Rather than simply chop a GameCube controller in half, he actually took the time to make them functional Joy-Cons — they can be split in two and everything. It’s a fascinating watch, so give it a look if you have the chance.
