    What the title says. I have a Switch controller and I would like to play Gamecube games with it.

    Thank you for your answers in advance!

    Thank you for the answer! That's a bummer. Is there a specific reason for it? Just curious. Thanks in advance! :)

    It's really new hardware. Not to say it's impossible, but really it's up to the developed to support it. You could go to the project page on GitHub and make a feature request.

    Hope that helps.

    Switch Pro controller would probably work connected via USB, since it's standard USB HID (with proprietary additions).

    For wireless, it's standard Bluetooth HID with proprietary addititions. Nintendont doesn't support any Bluetooth devices other than Wii protocol controllers, e.g. Wii Remote and Wii U Pro Controller.
