PDP is releasing Nintendo Switch GameCube Controllers that’ll arrive just in time for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The exclusive controllers will feature Mario, Zelda, and Pikachu and will arrive November 23th, which is just before the game’s release. Most SSB fans will agree that Super Smash Bros. Melee with a GameCube controller is meta and probably the best SSB experience you can get, therefore it makes sense to release SSB-themed GameCube Controllers for the next Smash entry.
Nintendo formally announced their own first-party Smash Ultimate edition of the controller, while peripheral company PDP has already announced pre-orders for their own GameCube controllers- that are wired.
Players can choose between the three characters to duke it out on their next-gen console.
PDP also talks about how the C-Stick on the pad can be swapped out for a full-size version for personal preference so players won’t have to feel worried about wearing out their C-Stick like in the Wii U days. The controller features a full 10-foot cable and old-school grip for an almost near replica of the GameCube Controller.
They’re priced for $24.99 on Amazon with a release date on November 23rd. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will roll out on December 7th on the Nintendo Switch.
