With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate serving as the sizable main course for Nintendo's E3 2018 showcase, long-time fans and competitive players were pleased to hear support for GameCube controllers - the pad is, after all, considered the standard for any self-respecting Smash nut. 

Well, Nintendo teased a new first-party GameCube controller at the show - complete with a snazzy Smash Bros logo on the face - and you can now pre-order the Nintendo Switch-compatible pad from all manner of retailers in North America (no word on the EU or the rest of the world right now).

It'll cost $29.99 and should arrive in time for the launch of the game itself on 7th December (although some, such as Amazon, do show a 31st December date, but this is likely a placeholder that will be updated in the run-up to release).
