    If that gets cutout: will support Wii U controllers.
    Yes, those HORI ones. So a good message for those that already own these: You don't need to spend money for a new one.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    That would be a great notice (at least)

    Wait. Isn't that controller wired to the Wii mote and acts as a Classic Controller on the Wii U? Does that mean that the Switch can communicate with Wii motes?

    No, the Hori Pokkén controller is USB wired so you can use it on WiiU, Android, and on PC.

    New huh?

    Besides that, if the wii u and other controllers will support switch would be nice. I know wii u pro controller can't replace the joy cons or switch pro (Cause it doesn't have motion controls which some games use. Breath of the wild.) but least it be okay for games that don't need it like shovel knight, blaster master zero and street fighter II :)

    Yeah, it'll be new like the Wiimotes and Wii U Pro Controller. :P

    The Wii U Pro Controller is still pricey nowadays so Nintendo making it compatible wouldn't make it all that big of a deal except for current owners of it. However, Wiimote + Classic Controller could definitely be a decent replacement.

    8 Bitdo controllers are Switch-compat but no modern-ish controller yet.

    Still that 8bit whatever doesn't have motion controls, and is important if games do use it like breath of the wild. But if games don't use it then is not much of a problem.

    Wii U Pro Controller doesn't either and if 8 Bitdo do make an Xbox/GameCube-like controller then no one will bother wishing WUPC support again.

    A well-made Gamecube controller with support for PC, Android, and Switch would be the dopest shit ever. It'd be the only controller I'd use; I'd definitely wear it out quickly.

    I'm highly considering getting this game over ARMS, how does the game fare with analog directions like on the Pro Controller?
