If you haven’t already heard the news, Resident Evil 4 on the Switch does not factor in motion controls from the 2007 Wii re-release. This newer version of the game is said to be a straight conversion of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One high-definition update from a while ago.
In saying this, one interesting discovery – as highlighted over on the GameXplain YouTube channel – is the inclusion of GameCube controller support, which is arguably a more welcome addition. After all, the fourth major entry in the Resident Evil series actually started its life out exclusively on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005 and to this day is known as one of the best games available for the platform.
To get the GameCube controller working in Resident Evil 4 on the Switch, you’ll need the GameCube adapter. You know, the one you use with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The controller apparently works “perfectly” and runs as it should with the game. Although, there is a bit of a mix-up when it comes to quick-time events. See for yourself in the video below:
