Enjoy up to 30 hours of gameplay with new alkaline batteries (other variables affect play-time).

Good but not Great

The buttons are way too snappy. The conductive rubber of the ABX and Y button have way too much spring. My thumb will literally be throbbing from the repeated impact of the hard plastic buttons snapping back into my finger after a long session of Smash. Left finger is getting a callus too from the analog stick. Much less comfortable than the concave analog stick on my cheap plug in pro style controller. Though somehow it’s still very easy to lose traction, with even the slightest bit of oils on the left thumb it becomes unresponsive. For this reason I’m trying to train myself to play smash with a pro controller since the buttons are so much softer and have a gentle easy to press with quick response rather than these buttons that go “clunk -clunk click-chunk”. The original game cube controller had softer buttons. Hard plastic on top. But pliable rubber underneath which allowed easy depression. This controller does not have rubber which creates that GameCube feel. Love the indigo color. The home plus and minus buttons could have been a little more distinct. Feeling around in the dark I often mistake the + for the Home and vise versa as they are very crowded and identical in shape/size.

Q:
Does it rumble at all? I understand no HD rumble but does that mean no vibration when playing smash?
Beaches_X_Bridges3 years ago
A:
The controller has no rumble at all! I used to play with rumble on the wired GC controllers so it was weird at first, but I am used to it and still love this wireless controller 10/10!

Q:
Do you need the GameCube controller adapter?
my name was already taken3 years ago
A:
Nope! This is a Nintendo Switch controller shaped like a GameCube controller. It connects the same way as a pro controller or joycons disconnected from the console. You will need AA batteries though!
