Your old GameCube controllers now work with the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Nintimdo RP

This might make you want to switch your Switch

Apart from the video capturing feature, the company has rolled out another neat feature that brings GameCube controllers support. In the meantime, it seems that the hidden features in the Switch OS version 4.0 are more interesting than the flaunted features.

These controllers do not have a Z button or a Home button. And while there's nothing pointing to specific new announcements, at the very least, it works on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. So, if you are playing a game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you will have to manage without the ability to use your shield.

And where there's a console that supports the GameCube controller, you better believe there's a mass of people hoping that this means Virtual Console or Super Smash Bros. news is on the way.
