Nintendo’s GameCube had one of the most unique looking hardware designs around, which also carried over to its controllers. They looked odd, but felt good in your hands, and anyone that played Super Smash Bros. knew they were crafted perfectly for the brawler. Anytime I see one I think of my Mario-Kart Double Dash glory days, so there’s no amount of nostalgia lost on them.
PowerA is revitalizing the GameCube-style controller for the Nintendo Switch, just in time for the debut of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the platform. The accessories maker has released a wireless and wired version of the GameCube controller for the Nintendo Switch, and after taking them for a test drive, I can report that they feel just like actual GameCube controllers, so if you’re looking for an edge in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you just may have to drop some extra coin on one of PowerA’s new GameCube controllers.
The wired version retails for $24.99, so it’s a bit cheaper than Nintendo’s own GameCube wired controller for the Switch. The wireless version retails for $49.99. You can check out additional specifications below for each controller. The full review can be viewed above, with scoring metrics after the break.
