Switch Update Adds Pokkén Tournament Pro Pad and Mayflash Adapter Support

June 20th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

The Pokkén Tournament Pro Pad that HORI launched alongside the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament is apparently compatible with the Switch after the system’s most recent firmware update.

The controller does not have analog sticks, a Home button or a screenshot button, but it will still work with any Switch game that does not require them, like PuyoPuyo Tetris or the ACA NeoGeo titles.

Switch users have also discovered that the Mayflash GameCube controller adapter also works with the Switch, albeit with a few caveats: It needs to be plugged in with the black USB plug, the adapter needs to be in PC mode and the controller must be plugged into controller port 2.

When it does work, the analog stick functions as a D-Pad and the C-Stick is not mapped properly. Multiple controllers will act only as a single controller.

eShop Thursday: “The End of E3” Edition

June 15th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

E3 is officially over.

There were some ups and downs: We got two confirmations that the Metroid series isn’t actually dead, Capcom apparently has no plans at the moment to localize Monster Hunter XX and we know there is a Kirby and Yoshi game in the works for the Switch. Overall, there are a lot of things to look forward to on the Switch in the next couple of years.

Except for Monster Hunter XX in the West.

As for games coming out in the immediate future, ARMS launches onto the Switch tomorrow.

Nintendo confirmed the addition of two bits of free ARMS DLC during today’s Treehouse stream: Spectator Mode, which is coming later this month, and a new character Max Brass, who will be added to the game next month.
