Use classic Nintendo controllers for Switch with new adapter

It might be perfect for the new Smash Bros.

  • Text: Jonas Mäki

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is almost here, and we know how much some of you prefer to actually use a GameCube controller for that particular series. While Nintendo and third parties are actually releasing Switch-compatible Gamecube controllers to cater to this need, there are in fact other ways to achieve this too.

8BitDo has announced a new peripheral called GBros. that basically acts as an all-in-one wireless adapter for several classic Nintendo controllers (GameCube, NES Classic, SNES Classic, and Wii Classic) for PC and Switch. There's even a Home and screenshot button on the adapter so you will be able to use those features when playing with a NES controller or some of the other options.

It's now available for pre-order on Amazon, and it's not too pricey either, sitting at $20 USD. GBros. launches December 7, which of course is the same day as Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Will you be getting one?
