If you've ever dreamt of playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with a DualShock 4, this might just be your lucky day. A new adapter is on the way which will allow Nintendo and Sony controllers to work with their rival systems.

Japanese company Columbus Circle is set to release a small device called the 'Super Converter' which can convert the wireless signals coming from your controllers. As you can see in the images below, this means that a PS4 can be used with Joy-Con, a Switch Pro Controller, and even older Nintendo controllers such as Wii Remotes, while your Switch can be used with Sony's DualShock 4 controller for the PS4.


It will reportedly be possible to update the adapter's firmware using a PC, and each controller's button assignment settings can be completely customised.

We have actually seen something similar to this in the past, too. Console accessory maker 8BitDo released a wireless USB stick which enabled a variety of controllers to be used with the Switch. It sounds like it should be impossible without a bit of sneaky tech wizardry, but it seems like you have plenty of options if you want to mess around.

We're not sure anyone's ever considered playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice with a Wii Remote, but it's certainly a possibility.

Would you ever try something like this? Or is using a Nintendo controller on a Sony console a crime against nature? Let us know in the comments below.
