      Yes! This is a wired Pro Controller in the shape of a GameCube controller. Any game that supports the Pro Controller will also be able to use this controller.

    Are they lagless. And I don’t mean that BS lagless that brands advertise. If I press A, will I see my input show up in 2 frames or less like Melee on GameCube.

      As long as the game is programmed for it, you’ll see no lag. The controller is designed to have a 5ms refresh rate, which means that a 60 fps game can receive two to three button commands per frame.

        No rumble?! Really?!

        I have your XBOX ONE pad (the one with an extra button near the R-Stick for voice chat) and have a very nice rumble feature.

        How can you do a gamepad especially for Smash, with no rumble?!

        I wanted to buy it so bad because it have the MENU, SNAPSHOT, PLUS and MINUS buttons that NGC have not, and the triggers are digital, but knowing that it won’t vibrate… :'(

      No, the triggers are digital, and because of that we made sure to make the trigger travel short.

    An updated Gamecube controller with all the buttons of a modern controller has long been a dream of mine!
    Is there going to be motion control and/or an Amiibo scanner?

    No top or back views so I feel I need to ask how the top buttons work. I was never a fan of the original GameCube style Z button or (what I consider) spongey triggers. More pictures would help. So what can we expect from those buttons?

    Do the the shoulder buttons have a long draw like the gamecube or immediate feedback like a joycon?

    I am concerned about the sensitivity of the joysticks. I know you guys aren’t Hori, but the GC styled Hori Battle Pad had the same sensitivity as the Classic Controller for the Wii U. Unfortunately this made it undesirable for Smash as it made your character run when you’d normally make a controlled walk/fast walk. I’ll definitely be looking for a review before I buy this, but I am very hopeful for now!

    So… it’s okay that it have not:
    -NFC
    -Gyroscope
    -HD rumble

    but, why not BASIC rumble? (T^T)

    Is there any chance of a wireless version of this? That is literally the only thing holding me back from purchasing one of these. I might as well just use one of my original Gamecube controllers and my GC adatper if I have to deal with wires at all.

    A few questions.

    1. Are they coming in different colors at any time? I’d really like green, but I was just wondering.

    2. I’m not so sure what you mean by “holiday”. Do you mean late November/ early December in time for Smash? Or closer to Christmas?

    3. Compared to the original GameCube controller, will the D-Pad be fixed? It’s a little flimsy to me and feels like a single button.

    4. Do the controllers keep the spring-like triggers?

    5. Who’s your main?

    That’s all for now, thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a wonderful day 😊

    Are you going to make a Peach one? I want a pink controller, but I can’t use the one that plugs directly to the Wiimote because it’s not compatible with the Switch.

    Could someone explain the legality of it? A) Making a product for which you don’t own the patent and B) Displaying copyrighted characters and logos on them? Could I sell my own F-Zero GameCube controller and mass produce them? Is this a grey area? We’re these licenced by Nintendo? Thanks!
