You Can Play ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ With a Gamecube Controller

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ will support Gamecube controllers and amiibo, Nintendo announced during their E3 showcase Tuesday.

If you don’t have your old controller lying around, not to worry. Nintendo will be releasing new controllers, according to a tweet from Nintendo of Europe.

Nintendo revealed two new amiibos coming soon for Ridley and Inkling, and noted that “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” will support all previously made amiibos.

If Ridley and Inkling aren’t your style, one of the 60 plus character in the full lineup is sure to be a better fit. Nintendo revealed that this version of “Super Smash” will include all of the previous characters from past games.

Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO, talked about the decision behind bringing all of the characters to the new game in a press release.

“At E3, we’re showing how Nintendo Switch continues to redefine play, with the broadest range of games people can enjoy together anytime, anywhere,” said Fils-Aime. “Fans who’ve debated which ‘Super Smash Bros.’ fighter is the best now have the chance to settle their differences once and for all, pitting familiar faces against fresh challengers on stages both new and old. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,’ ‘Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!’ and ‘Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!,’ and the arrival of Epic’s ‘Fortnite’ on Nintendo Switch demonstrate the strong momentum Nintendo Switch continues to have through 2018 and beyond.”

Nintendo is streaming previews of their upcoming titles directly to the fanbase as a part of their Nintendo Direct E3 showcase.
