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

Same great feel as the GameCube controller and easily connects to the switch for the first time.

I have the purple one! I love that they were able to stick with that same solid feeling and playing games with it is a blast! Glad you're enjoying it and thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

Problems with the controller one week in. One direction would fail to register or one direction would be the only way to go. I changed batteries and always had clean hands before playing... just not a very good product in my experience.

Being a GameCube user, this made that change to Switch much more comfortable. If anyone was an avid GameCube user this is a great buy to your gaming skills. This goes double for those that purchased Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Playing with a GameCube controller on this franchise, there is no comparison as the buttons on the controller makes gameplay much more enjoyable.

It works great for the switch and I use it for smash. There isn’t much difference between it and a regular pro controller or a GameCube controller. It is a lot louder than a typical controller in all the button presses.

Q:
Do the joysticks/buttons feel as nice to press and play with as an original Nintendo-brand gamecube controller? The thing I care about is how it compares in quality of use to the originals, which were by far when compared to third party most preferable.
Hakoborino3 years ago
A:
Everything feels more clicky, the triggers have no analog input, the sticks click, and the road is bigger. It's a very close tribute to the GameCube controller but it feels quite different overall
