Product Description

GameCube controllers are considered the best way to play Super Smash Bros Ultimate since octagonal gated sticks, larger A button and muscle memory allow for more precise attacks. Mirrored on the original GameCube controller you know and love, this Bluetooth wireless version has been improved by making the shoulder buttons and d-pad larger plus added left shoulder and system buttons for compatibility with all Switch games*. Enjoy up to 30 hours of gameplay with new alkaline batteries (other variables affect play-time).
  • Wireless freedom - PowerA Wireless controllers free you from being tethered to the console and provide a tangle free gaming experience. Our design is built for comfort during extended gaming sessions using high quality materials. Enjoy up to 30 hours of gameplay with new alkaline batteries (other variables affect play-time).
  • PowerA Quality Promise - At PowerA, our controllers are designed by passionate gamers. Our team has over two decades of experience in the gaming industry designing across all platforms. For the price, you'll be amazed at the features and quality built into this controller. Backed by a 2-year limited warranty.
  • Official Licensed Product - This PowerA Controller is officially licensed for Nintendo Switch. Always look for this seal when buying video game accessories as assurance that the product has gone thru Nintendo's rigorous testing and evaluation process. Products that do not carry this seal may not work at all with your Nintendo system or may have compatibility issues with certain games.
  • Gaming is better together - Nintendo Switch allows up to 8 controller connections in docked mode, or you can link up to 8 systems together to play in tabletop mode. Compared to Joy-Con controllers, wireless controllers offer improved accuracy and comfort plus larger buttons. Now that you have a more affordable wireless option available in a variety of colors and designs, pick up one or more, gather your friends, and share the fun.

Q: Do you need to map buttons at all?

Best Answer :

No I did not, it was just as if I had an oldschool gamecube controller but without a chord and with a left bumper added

Q: Does it rumble at all? I understand no HD rumble but does that mean no vibration when playing smash?

Beaches_X_Bridges 11 months ago
Best Answer :

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 taken 2 years ago
Best Answer :

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!

Q: Dose this control have a NFC point for amiibo?

Ya me too 6 months ago
Best Answer :

Sadly not! It's a pretty barebones controller for switch features, but if you're using it for games like Animal Crossing or Smash it's a fun one to play with!

I have had three so far and I'm a smash player. I don't know if I'm just too rough, but after about a year, each controller's left stick has made frequent misinputs which is quite annoying. But before that happens it's an absolute joy to use. so apart from durability issues, it's a fantastic controller

I received this brand new after receiving one (from a previous review) that did not work. Sebastian was very kind and helpful. Our controller is working great now and my daughter is excited to use it. Thank you GameStop!
