Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is on the horizon, which means you’ll need a Nintendo Switch Gamecube controller solution ASAP. This wireless GBros. Adapter by 8BitDo may just be the one.

Hardcore Smash players swear by Nintendo Gamecube controllers. The problem is, almost every Gamecube controller is wired, forcing you to play up close to the TV. There hasn’t been a wireless Gamecube solution since the Wavebird, and that thing ran on batteries. But there’s no need to scour eBay for a wireless Nintendo Switch Gamecube controller solution. Simply plug any Gamecube controller into the adapter, and it will connect to your Switch console via Bluetooth.

But that’s not all. In fact, it even works with legacy controllers you already have lying around. The NES and SNES Classic Mini controllers work with this adapter as well. Even that Wii Classic Controller that’s gathering dust in your garage is compatible. What’s old is new again, and best of all, totally wireless. You can even use the adapter to link your controllers to your Mac or Windows PC. Talk about versatile!

Plus, it’s a total steal. The GBros. Nintendo Switch Gamecube controller adapter releases on December 7–just in time for Smash Bros.–and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $19.99.
