This October, peripheral maker Hori is releasing three GameCube controllers for Nintendo Switch. The controllers are Mario, Zelda, and Pikachu themed. No word yet on an international release.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

In case you were curious, they connect via the dock’s USB port:

Which is fine, I guess, but I’m not really sure why they aren’t releasing a Bluetooth version as well. I’d rather play on the wireless Pro Controller than this.

Also: does anyone know if the Switch supports USB hubs? I already have one USB port taken by my ethernet adapter, but even if not that would limit you to two players.
