While Nintendo didn't list the feature in its official release notes, the new controller support was discovered and spread on Twitter yesterday, then quickly confirmed by others.

Whether you're nostalgic for the early 2000's (someone is, right?), or, more importantly, deep into the Super Smash Bros. scene, the news that you can now use a GameCube controller with a Nintendo Switch will bring a smile to your face. The big new feature was the ability to transfer save game and profile data from one Switch to another, but it was far from flawless.

Reddit users who are often known for their curiosity managed to find this wireless headphone feature that works through USB and even supported the PS4 headset. The GameCube controller, being a product of its time, obviously lacks a few buttons that the Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller have.

Getting the GameCube controller to work is easy.

For more information on the upcoming change and a list of related FAQs, check out T-Mobile's dedicated webpage on the matter. If you really need more than that data, you can still purchase high-speed worldwide LTE data for an additional $25.

To use a GameCube controller, simply connect it to the Switch's dock and pair it by hitting your L and R buttons.

Will you be using the GameCube adapter with your Switch?

Today, a great new update for the Nintendo switch is available. There's only one Z button on the right and it only has a start button so you can't go back to the main menu.

We'd be happy if either one were true - and now that our favorite controller works with the system, we're already part of the way there. Match version with local users is an option that automatically updates all installed games to the latest version and there is no need for each individual user to do it.
