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).

switch gamecube controllerI love it. Gamecube was one of my first consoles and I practically grew up with it because it was around for so long. It's nice to not have to learn entirely new button controls like I was trying to with the joycons. I still have trouble with them.

Poor Quality, went bad after a couple of monthsBought this in-store at gamestop a couple of months ago, as the idea of having a replica gamecube controller that felt like the real thing be both wireless and fully functional. After VERY light use (seriously, I really only used it probably a total of 5-6 Super Smash Bros nights. <30 hours of useage), the c-stick drifts and I have been unable to fix it.
Upon further research, this seems to be a common problem with this companies controllers after a few weeks-months, and I have not heard of one example of someone successfully contacting PowerA and getting a replacement/refund. I will nevertheless try, but I doubt I will be successful.

Good, but could be better...It’s a fully functional GameCube controller, well crafted and licensed through PowerA, but it takes AA batteries, despite the technological advances in rechargeable batteries in wireless controllers.
Can this controller work on other switch games like Breath of the wild, splatoon, Mario kart, and fortnite?
Asked by: MN_Austin
Sure can, it's actually kind of cool playing mario/with the GameCube controls, very nostalgic.

Asked by: berniemack
No. The switch uses Bluetooth to connect to your joycons and it will do the same for this controller

How is this controller with fps?
How accurate and smooth is the c stick while aiming down sights, or is a pro controller recommended
Asked by: Jamesearl
Nintendo Switch maps the PowerA Wireless GameCube Style controller as if it were a Pro style controller, so the c-stick will function like right thumbstick for fps games. You may also be able to find videos online that show use of this controller on FPS games to get additional input.
