The update released by the Big Nintendo Switch adds interesting new features

Posted October 26, 2017

As the name implies, this feature updates the game to all users on their latest versions, which is useful for users who have multiple profiles on one system.

If you're a Nintendo fan (or, more likely, a die-hard Smash Bros. lover), you've probably got an old Gamecube controller lying around. GameCube controllers now have added support thanks to this update.

The other interesting thing about this news is that it ties into rumors of a new version of Super Smash Bros. coming to the Switch.

Since Nintendo made the Switch compatible with GameCube and didn't release the information, could this mean they're planning something to utilize the controllers? Simply plug in the adapter via USB, connect the GameCube controller to the adapter, and then navigate to the Switch Controller options page using a Joy-Con, select Change Grip/Order, then hit the L+R buttons on the GameCube controller. Once connected, it works like a wired Switch gamepad, sans modern conveniences like a "Home" button. Is Nintendo working on a "GameCube Virtual Console"? You can find this feature in System Settings - Users - Transfer Your User and Save Data.

To this day, the GameCube controller is often cited by most Smash players as being the best way to play a game within the series.

Apart from the GameCube controller and video capture support, the update also brings 12 new icons for two different games. The Wii, of course, introduced the motion-controlled Wii Remote, the Wii U was a odd tablet design and the Switch combines the best of the Wii and the Wii U featuring motion controls and a truly portable gaming console.
