Video game accessory company, Hori announced this week that it is providing three new controllers for Nintendo Switch, which are beholding the GameCube style of Nintendo.

All gamers need is connect the GameCube Style Controllers to the Switch dock via USB. You can reassign the L/R and ZL/ZR buttons thereafter. The controllers bear a lightweight design with textured handles that provide a comfortable grip during intensifying games like Rivals of Aether and the upcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Each controller is priced at 2,980 Yen or $26.77. The three controllers have different themes and colors: Mario in red, Pikachu in yellow, and Zelda in black. They are slated for release in October and there’s no plan so far for a release outside of Japan.

Hori GameCube Controller

PDP as well, on the other hand, has announced multiple GameCube stylized controllers for Switch. These are to be released coinciding with the release of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate that’s coming in December.

PDP’s controllers will have three themes too: Mario, Pikachu, and Link. These will be available with the support for gamers to swap the C-stick, unlike in the controllers of Hori. The swapping will lead users to choose between the original C-stick controls or the more modernized full-size twin-stick control scheme.

Back at the E3 2018, Nintendo did announce that it is going to revive its GameCube style across its controllers. Now, Hori did not just announce their own, but as well officially licensed the controllers for Nintendo Switch.

Did that inspire PDP? Young gamers will get to have the classic taste, with the veterans journeying through nostalgia. Gamers are gaining!
