Peripheral maker NEXiLUX is about to release an adapter which allows you to use a wide range of alternative controllers on the Switch.

The Game Genie (no relation to the cheat cartridge from the early '90s) plugs into the USB port of the Switch's dock and works with The Wii U Pro Controller, Xbox One S pad, PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 and PlayStation 4 DualShock 4. You can also use it to run all of those pads - as well as Switch controllers - on your PlayStation 3 or PC.

The video above shows the unit being used on a PC, so at the moment we're not entirely sure how elegantly it works with the Switch itself, but it certainly sounds useful. Is this something you'd want to get your hands on? The Game Genie launches at the end of August, and we'll try and get our hands on one for review.
