Wonder if it'll work with a nintendo wave bird, hmm would be great for emulation to use the gc controller totally without wires.
Seen these, and I do own the official wired GC adaptor. But is it solely smash bros GC controllers work with or other games too?
Whats this used for? Pardon my ignorance

It's an adaptor to pair wired (gamecube, classic edition etc) control pads with devices (switch, Android, pc and mac) that don't have the ports (its done wirelessly, press show more on the description and it will show you an example).

This will work with all games that support the Switch Pro controller (as it identifies as a pro controller to the Switch when in "S" mode). It won't offer gyro controls or Amiibo support though, as Gamecube controllers, classic console controllers and Wii classic controllers don't have the needed hardware.
"Classic edition" controllers in this context are ones designed for the NES Mini or the SNES mini, but it also supports other gamepads that plug into the bottom of a Wiimote such as the Wii Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro.

From the Q&A on Amazon;

“Worth noting though: it’s impossible to insert a WaveBird receiver into the unit, it simply doesn’t fit. Wired GC controllers only.”

Shame! Would have loved to use my WaveBird on Switch.

Thanks for confirming. After further looking now I’m awake lol. I cancelled my order. This doesn’t provide me with any extra benefit over my Official Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter.
i got this for £10 was brand new in box at CEX, just before smash bros got released. Just in case anyone wants the official adapter. Does work on Wii (non GC model) and Wii U / Switch.

To use the Wavebird on the switch you just need the standard usb GameCube adapter, as the Wavebird is wireless anyway it works great just plugged into the dock, I have 4 connected to mine right now and they work great even if they are a little underused during COVID lockdown

That could be a cheap way to get some more controllers

It should do since it works with the official classic controllers. Although be aware that classic controllers are missing the buttons you click by pressing down on the control sticks, so they are missing two potentially important buttons in some games!

I just ordered one exactly so I can use my Wii Classic Controller which I never thought would get used again! Going to use it to play NES and SNES games I think.
