Switch support for GameCube controllers reignites Virtual Console, Smash Bros. hopes
October 24, 2017 - Super Smash Bros
The chronicle 4.0.0 update for Nintendo Switch combined a lot of surprising things, and arch among those is GameCube controller support. We can now offshoot adult a GameCube controller adapter for Wii U to a Switch consoles to use a fan-favorite marginal — that is now concordant with 4 loyal Nintendo home consoles in a row, it should be said. And where there’s a console that supports a GameCube controller, we improved trust there’s a mass of people anticipating that this means Virtual Console or Super Smash Bros. news is on a way.
Last December, reports swirled that a Switch would deliver GameCube games to a Virtual Console library. Nintendo’s 2001 console continues to be a favorite, interjection to games like Animal Crossing, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Super Smash Bros. Melee. Smash Bros. for GameCube is still outrageous in fighting diversion circles, and a GameCube controller is a elite approach to play it and a sequels — that is because there’s a GameCube controller adapter for Wii U in a initial place.
But Nintendo hasn’t pronounced anything about a new Super Smash Bros. for Switch, and it has nonetheless to endorse those Virtual Console rumors. (The Switch doesn’t have a Virtual Console of any kind yet.) Adding in support for a dear GameCube controller is an enlivening initial step, however — one that Nintendo might even have hinted to behind in February.
When asked possibly a Switch would support GameCube games in an interview, emissary ubiquitous manager Yoshiaki Koizumi gave a common “nothing to discuss” association line. But he did contend one thing that got some attention.
“What we can tell we is that we are operative on things that go in that direction,” Koizumi said, referencing a intensity Switch-GameCube connection.
It seems like controller support could be usually that, nonetheless it usually has fans even some-more assured that a Switch Virtual Console or a new Super Smash Bros. is in a works. A brief corkscrew by Twitter or Reddit threads about a refurbish confirms as much.
We’d be happy if possibly one were loyal — and now that a favorite controller works with a system, we’re already partial of a approach there.
