The Best Switch Accessories For Smash Bros. Addicts

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch is almost here, and it’s a doozie. With the tepid performance of the Wii U, it’s safe to say that this is the most anticipated Smash Bros. game in a decade.

If you’re already limbering up your thumbs in preparation, or you know someone else who’s also a huge fan, you might be looking for some add-ons to enhance the brawling crossover experience. Here are a few choice accessories that will make your extended Smash Bros. sessions more fun, more comfortable, or just more convenient.

GameCube Controllers For All!

Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube, released way back in 2001, was the entry point for many fans of the series. Its relative simplicity and hyper-fast fighting action means it’s still very popular as the “definitive” Smash Bros., still often played more than the Wii and Wii U entries. That being the case, plenty of fans prefer the unique layout of the GameCube controller for their fighting sessions.

Nintendo knows this: they released a GameCube controller adapter for the Wii U, and the same gadget still works for the Switch. But things are a little different. The adapter lets you use any of the old GameCube controllers or the re-released version (identical to the original) from Nintendo, but since it needs two old-fashioned USB-A ports, you can only use it with the Switch dock. It’s the cheapest way to get four GameCube pads working with Smash Bros. Ultimate, but it’s less than ideal, unless you insist on wires for latency reasons.

An interesting alternative is the 8BitDo “Gbros” Wireless adapter. This allows you to plug in an old-fashioned GameCube controller to a battery-powered Bluetooth radio, with some extra buttons for pairing. It and also supports NES and SNES Classic controllers. This one isn’t out at the moment, but if you only have one GameCube controller you really like and you just want to add wireless capability, it’ll probably be the best way. It will retail for $20.
