Whether you’re nostalgic for the early 2000’s (someone is, right?), or, more importantly, deep into the Super Smash Bros. scene, the news that you can now use a GameCube controller with a Nintendo Switch will bring a smile to your face.

Support for GameCube controllers is in Switch System Update 4.0, though you won’t see it in the changelog. A number of enterprising gamers on social media, though, figured out that it works.

To use a GameCube controller on Switch, you’ll need a special adapter that Nintendo initially made to connect GameCube controllers to the Wii U. Once you connect your GameCube controller via the adapter, the system will recognize it as a USB controller.
