By connecting a GameCube controller via the Wii U adaptor, the Switch console will now read it, allowing players to use the controller with seemingly any Switch game.

Is it too early to start assuming that a Smash Bros. announcement is imminent? Yes?


    Where's the Eternal Darkness virtual console game that goes with this said support?


      So happy any time anyone mentions Eternal Darkness. Memories man!

        Truth be told, I never finished that game. But I will sum it up neatly.

        Don't look in the bath tub.


    I didn't even think about trying that when 4.0 dropped. Neat.
