Acclaimed as the true-way to play Super Smash Bros. to some, consumers can use the product with their Nintendo Switch systems if they have a GameCube controller adapter. This adapter was sold during the Nintendo Wii U days and allowed players to plug the adapter into their Wii U console to enable your GameCube controller to work with the previous Super Smash Bros. game for that system. However, it seems Nintendo is selling a new version of the GameCube controller adapter for $19.99 USD on Amazon. It is only available to pre-order now.
