Switch Firmware 4.0 Unlocks Support For Headsets, GameCube Controller Adapter

You can pair four controllers at once. The Switch's 4.0 update (which dropped last week) came with support for the classic GameCube control pads. Well, it now seems another hidden feature has been uncovered by Twitter user Master Mewking: GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch. You can use the GameCube controller with all Nintendo Switch games right now using the adapter.

To use a GameCube controller on Switch, you'll need a special adapter that Nintendo initially made to connect GameCube controllers to the Wii U. Once you connect your GameCube controller via the adapter, the system will recognize it as a USB controller. You're now playing with GameCube power. It doesn't have equivalent ZL and ZR shoulder buttons, and there's no Home button. In a similar fashion, it has now been identified that the 4.0 update adds support for the GameCube controller.

Under the change, players will select from 70 numbers for their first pick, and then from 25 numbers for their Mega Ball pick. According to a release, there will also be new ways to play, including the Just the Jackpot wager and a new range of numbers.

Naturally this has left Nintendo fans wildly speculating about the possibility of a GameCube virtual console eventually making its way to the Switch, giving more credence to reports that have been circulating since December 2016. The Nintendo Switch will recognize it as a USB controller that even works with games. However, all this is music to the ears of players of the Smash Bros. on the Switch. That, or it may just be a Pro controller alternative.

This means that if you're trying to a play a game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example, you're going to have to play without the ability to use your shield.
