The GameCube controller is still considered by many diehard Super Smash Bros. fans as the best way to play the game. Since debuting alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee, Nintendo has been able to make it compatible with Brawl for Wii, and also the Wii U entry in the series.

Now, the latest Nintendo Direct presentation has confirmed the controller will also be compatible with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Switch. Given the popularity of it, this announcement isn't all that surprising. It was also somewhat expected when taking into consideration the update the Switch received a while back, making the Wii U adapter compatible with the system and allowing GameCube controllers to be used in titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
