With the GameCube, Nintendo not only brought a cult console onto the market in the early 2000s, but also one of the most popular GamePads. The GameCube controller is an extremely popular classic in terms of game control for gamers who grew up with Nintendo. It is especially preferred for Super Smash Bros., which is why Nintendo has a version for the Nintendo Switch special Edition including adapter and GameCube controller. But if you want to use the GameCube controller with USB on Mac and PC, then you will find it here.
The model presented here is based on the classic Nintendo GameCube controller. However, this gamepad has a USB connection so that it cannot be used on the retro console, but on your current Mac or PC. Whether for emulated games from GameCube, N64, Game Boy or other consoles or for macOS and Windows games - the buttons and analog sticks can be used in different ways.
In addition, the controls in video game clients such as Steam can be adapted to the controller. It is also possible to assign game functions to the buttons and sticks in the individual games. So you can - as a replacement for Super Smash Bros. - play titles like Tekken and Street Fighter on the computer with a GameCube controller. These are available on Steam, among others.
