Pre-Orders for Wireless GameCube Controllers For Switch are Available Now

PowerA revealed today a new option for Switch players that’s currently on the way. The company will release a wireless GameCube-inspired design that can work with the Nintendo Switch.

These controllers will be releasing just in time for the release of Nintendo’s upcoming popular fighting game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and will have all of the buttons that had the original GameCube controller while adding all of the extra buttons necessary for the Nintendo Switch (the extra left shoulder button, a capture button, and the home button).

Key Features:

  • The preferred gamepad for Super Smash Bros Ultimate

  • Bluetooth Wireless freedom

  • Classic GameCube design plus larger D-pad and added left shoulder button

  • Motion controls and system buttons added for compatibility with all Nintendo Switch Games

  • LEDs for power, player number and low battery warning

  • Includes two AA batteries for up to 30 hours of gameplay

  • Official licensed product with 2-year limited warranty – Register at PowerA.com

The controllers will come in three different colors – purple, grey, and black. Also, gamers should know that these controllers will need AA batteries to be able to use the wireless functionality, rather than being chargeable via USB, and the controllers don’t support HD rumble, IR, or amiibo NFC.

Nintendolife said in an article on their website:

“The controllers offer motion controls, however, which isn’t always the case with third-party offerings.

The controllers are all available to pre-order from PowerA’s official site in the US for $49.99 each; in the UK, the grey model is exclusive to GAME for £39.99, with others seemingly yet to appear online. Of course, there are also official Nintendo GameCube controllers on the way for Switch, but those controllers are all wired.”
