Rumor: Switch to get Gamecube VC support

Jason Clement

One of the latest rumors for the Nintendo Switch is something that many fans have been wanting to see for a while now. Of course, I'm referring to Gamecube support via the Virtual Console; something that the Wii U bypassed entirely in favor of Wii VC support, oddly enough.


Eurogamer's Tom Phillips reports that multiple sources allege that three Gamecube games have already been prepped for the Switch, and they are: Super Mario Sunshine, Luigi's Mansion, and Super Smash Bros. Melee.


It isn't too surprising that those three were chosen given that they're probably the most popular Gamecube titles other than The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, which saw an HD port on Wii U. Phillips also reports that Nintendo has a strong desire to make Melee available for purchase for fans once again given its popularity in the Smash community and at tournaments such as EVO.


No mention has been made if Gamecube VC support will be available from Switch's launch or soon after, but hopefully we'll hear more about this when all is revealed about Switch in January.
