We don't currently have an official adapter available for the Nintendo Switch, but there are 2 ways to get the X-Arcade to work on it so you can get a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate beat-down going!. Both options will require our 5in1 adapter (GameCube connection) and one of the following:
- With Nintendo firmware update 4.0 or higher GameCube controllers and our 5in1 adapter work on the Switch when used with their official GameCube-Wii U adapter or with 3rd-party ones like this. (To enable it, press L & R simultaneously when pairing controllers and use the analog/DPad modifier to get the joystick to work. The Start button acts as the + button. Keep in mind these will only work with games that have GameCube controller support.
NOTE: This Brook GameCube-Switch adapter does NOT work with our adapters).
The 8BitDo GBros. Wireless Adapter for Switch will also allow you to connect an X-Arcade to the Switch (wirelessly between our 5in1 adapter and the console), and it makes the console see it as a Pro Controller instead of a Gamecube one. It uses 2 AA batteries in each adapter, and you will need 2 of them for 2-player play.
Keep in mind that these option may not work if the game absolutely requires the right bumper shoulder or - (minus) to work since GameCube controllers lack those buttons. There is also no Home button, so you will need to use another controller when you need to go Home, or there is a Home button on the GBros adapters. All of the 5in1 adapter mode options still work and are outlined on the 5in1 adapter page here.
