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.

He hooks up an LCD display from an old phone when he wants to adjust the button mapping.

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.
