Use with PC platforms[edit]


Custom application reWASD lets remap whole controller and works without Steam application running. Software gives advanced customization options eg. reassigning buttons to keyboard or mouse actions, macros, activate custom modes etc.


Wii U GameCube Adapter[edit]

Usable with PC by installing the GCN-USB-Adapter driver.
USB adapter supports up to four controllers.

Mayflash GameCube Controller Adapter[edit]

Directly compatible with PC and shows up as four DirectInput controllers.
Compatible with Wii U console and acts like Nintendo's official adapter.
Has a physical switch to toggle between support for PC and Wii U.
For rumble to work requires drivers from manufacturer's website.

8BitDo GBros. Adapter[edit]

Connects original wired Gamecube controller, NES Classic controller, SNES Classic controller or Wii Classic controller just like a Wiimote. Converts analog signal to Bluetooth.
It has built in home and screenshot buttons.
Turbo functionality is available for Windows.
Adapter can work as wired adapter. When it is connected to devices via USB, batteries are not needed.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.

Steam Link compatibility[edit]

Works natively over Mayflash GameCube Controller Adapter (4-Port).[1]
Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit Y and disable video and audio streaming.
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.
