Nintendo Switch update secretly brings GameCube controller support


The last time Nintendo gave new life to the Gamecube's popular controller, we were blessed with Super Smash Bros for the Wii U. It also doesn't work for all controllers - an Xbox One controller won't show up, for example - so this is a targeted decision to make the Gamecube controller work with the Switch. Here is a look at how it works, courtesy of GameXplain: At the risk of reading too much into this, support for the GameCube controller could hint that Nintendo is prepping a GCN Virtual Console on the Switch.

Nintendo released a massive update for its Switch#Gaming console. Compatible games Legend of Zelda: The Ghost of the Desert, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and Splatoon 2.

LaMarcus Aldridge agrees to contract extension with San Antonio Spurs
Aldridge left the Portland Trail Blazers to join the Spurs on a four-year contract worth US$84 million (AU$111 million) in 2015. Gregg Popovich and Aldridge cleared the air during camp after he was involved in trade rumors in the offseason.

What other new features does the update bring? This will allow players to project their games onto a suitable surface like a wall while on the go while also keep things powered with its large 20,400mAh battery. The big new feature was the ability to transfer save game and profile data from one Switch to another, but it was far from flawless. Unfortunately, the Switch has been severely lacking the usual Nintendo functionality during its 7-month life, which is surprisingly longer than it took to bring the feature to the now-defunct Wii U. From here they would have to click on "Transfer Your User and Save Data" to shift to the data to a new system. If a user unfollows a certain channel, all the content related to that channel will automatically disappear from the feed. You'll be able to pair them up through the settings menu as well as by using the L and R buttons.
