DIY GameCube Controller Adapter for Nintendo 3DS: Super Smash Bros. Bros

 |  |  |  |  |  October 2, 2014

Using an Arduino Nano, dekuNukem made a detachable adapter that takes input from a GameCube controller and translates the input for the 3DS.

Here’s dekuNukem testing the adapter on his 3DS:

It may not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts. Check out dekuNukem’s Imgur album for more on his hack. He said he’ll upload a more detailed guide soon, and he’s also accepting a limited number of orders for the adapter. You can contact him on YouTube or through dekuNukem@gmail.com.
