The only downside is that the GameCube controller does not have a Z button on the left-hand side, and there's no Home button, so it's going to be tricky returning to the Switch's main menu from within a game.
To celebrate the announcement of the release date, a brand new trailer was released, which shows off some gameplay from the Switch version of the game.
Reddit users who are often known for their curiosity managed to find this wireless headphone feature that works through USB and even supported the PS4 headset. Then head to the settings for pairing the controllers by pressing the L and R buttons.
"Being a new and unknown game, we thought we would be left to do most of it on our own, but they were actually very involved and helped us out a lot with releasing it".
In the meantime, it seems that the hidden features in the Switch OS version 4.0 are more interesting than the flaunted features. Nintendo has quietly added support for them after the 4.0 system update. It also makes it very hard to come back to the home screen menu on the Switch console but if you are really keen on going all retro, this should hardly pose a problem. Nintendo didn't formally announce this change, but as reported by GameXplain, other USB controllers such as the Xbox 360 or Xbox One pads still don't work with the console.
The update will also allow users to transfer their save data out.
