Nintendo Switch Will Let You Record But…

Homemade Nintendo Switch runs on Raspberry Pi plays all your retro games

The surprise controller addition will be welcome news for the many longtime Nintendo fans who think Nintendo never really improved on the oddly shaped GameCube controller design and for those who want to use bigger analog sticks on the system without having to invest in the Switch Pro Controller.

Opinion: Super Smash Bros is one of my favorite Nintendo series, so any new information pertaining to Smash Bros Switch is exciting. What is nice about the implementation on the Switch is that support is not limited to a single game. Red Bull Games got to interview the developer and, interestingly, Golf Story was originally meant to be on the Wii U. Sidebar Games also revealed that Nintendo was very helpful in bringing their game to the Switch platform.

We have good news for anyone with old Game Cube controllers lying about.

In the console's recent 4.0 update, Nintendo allowed the GameCube controller to work with the Switch using its adapter.


Videos going around show that GameCube support isn't fully baked. Nintendo also says that "many more games" will provide support for future video capture. GameXplain goes on to demo the GameCube controller by playing Fire Emblem Warriors.

GameCube controllers are highly important in the Super Smash Bros competitive arena, with them lending themselves better to the fighting series' frenetic gameplay than other control methods.

KitGuru Says: Even minus GameCube titles, I would like to see a Virtual Console make its way to the Switch sooner rather than later.

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.
