Smash Bros Tested, Kid Approved!

Love this controller. I bought 2 originally so my oldest son and I could play on the Switch together like we did when he was an only child and gamecube was still new. The controller is true to form! It's a little light, so the buttons are bound to wear out in a few months solid Smash Bros and S*** Talk. I order 4 more for my youngest 3. If they take to the controller, we'll certainly be back for another bundle! #DadMoments

It works very well, EXACTLY what I was looking for!

Responsiveness is spot on. Just like the GameCube, but nice and wireless. It's a fantastic quality controller!

A solid option

Using for Nintendo switch, it was a solid and cheap option as a backup controller to my expensive joycons. Perfect for fans of the GameCube control style.

The best for Smash Players

First as a standard controller: It works fine, for your Breath of the Wild, sure, button layout maybe weird, but it has motion control so it makes up for it. Mario Kart? you need 3 buttons, its fine. The Dpad, is FAR better than the OG GameCube dpad, no doubt. As a Smash Bros controllers It resolves ever problem I have! I have several Gamecube controllers, but I did not want to shell out to buy the converter from USB to GC. only because I want to play with the GC the same way i would my Pro Controller. Take the controller and the switch. Thats all. But with a converter, I need ports, cable management, #No. Its a gamecube controller at the end of the day, i mends with my fairly larger hands, it plays as it should, no more, no less. they provide the 2nd bumper as the classic did not have the a 2nd bumper (or Z in the GC time) and includes the 4 face buttons. The controller feels a TINY bit cheaper than a standard controller, but I have come to the conclusion that its only because i missing the cord. As my mind is used to twiddling the cable. The only other thing that would have pushed this product to a "MUST OWN FOR ANY SWITCH OWNER" would have been a rechargeable battery. The triggers are not analog, but its something I can do without, and this is me reaching on the complaint department, but that tiny rattle sound the sync button makes. Again, that is me reaching. I dont notice most of the time, but it something I immediately noticed as i was taking it out of the box in a dramatic way. 9.9/10 for anyone that plays smash bros, does not include NFC, but at 265 hours of this game, i've used it.......like once. For the convenience of grabbing the switch tablet and only this controller, is worth the price of entry. Hands down.

Time to SMASH!

I'm very happy with these controllers, PowerA always has done a great job in my opinion and these don't disappoint. The updates to the original GameCube controllers are great, with the addition of the left bumper, the +, -, Home and Capture buttons, and the updated joysticks (including the c stick!) mean these can be viable controllers for even modern games. The enhanced D-pad feels great too. I had expected to raid the battery drawer to power these bad boys, but good guy PowerA put batteries in the box, ready to pair and play... which I did! I already feel a huge improvement compared to some old GameCube controllers I had kicking around. The buttons are quick and responsive with no noticeable input lag (at least to my casual eye). And being wireless makes me less nervous with my not so graceful pets around. Can't wait to take these to my NYE Smash party! Thanks for the great sticks PowerA, I'll be back when I need more!

Really Nice Gamecube Style pro controller for switch

Let me just say I love this controller, not only does it look cool with the umbreon black but it has everything that I want in a controller. I grew up on the gamecube so for me this felt like the closest to an OG gamecube controller. It has a decent build quality but it's not perfect. One gripe i have with the controller is the shoulder buttons. Now they arent a huge deal but they do have some travel to them. For super smash bros it does sort of affect gameplay but if you get used to it its not a big deal. For me i came from playing smash with the PDP fightpad which have buttons for shoulder buttons so it did take getting use to this controller. The travel on the shoulder buttons arent nearly as bad as the older model of this controller. This is definitely more updated and better. Another thing that people might not like is that it takes 2 AA batteries. It comes with them in the box but some people might not like the fact that it takes batteries. What I love is that powerA gives you a warranty on their website. All you have to do is register your controller once you get it. Overall one month and this controller is always my Go to for most the games i play. In case you guys were curious, the games I play with this controller are: pokemon sword and shield, stardew valley, mario maker 2, super mario odyssey. This controller works great for those games. I would not recomment this controller for any shooters, but any other 2D and some 3D games i think that this controller works great. It is an good deal especially if you can get it on sale. Its not for everyone but if you grew up on gamecube and want a gamecube feel for your games this is amazing.
