Super Mario Odyssey with DualShock 4 anyone?

Do you ever find yourself short a controller for your Switch during multiplayer sessions? Have a spare PS4 DualShock laying around and think if only you could use it with the rival console? You can rejoice now as the Japanese company Columbus Circle has created a new controller adapter dubbed the ‘Super Converter’ that will release this summer.

 

The little device plugs into your Switch or PS4 via a USB cable and converts wireless signals from your controllers. This means you can finally play God of War with Joy-Cons and HD Rumble. What is even more curious is the fact that older Nintendo controllers like the now iconic Wii Remotes can also be connected to the consoles as seen in the diagram. It is unclear if this will work for DualShock 3 controllers from the PS3 era, though it seems to be possible considering that even Wii U Pro Controllers are getting some love as well. What do you think? Will you pick up the Super Converter or does playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a DualShock seem too sacrilegious?

About Mohammad Maidin

Mo is an avid JRPG and horror fan whose interest in gaming began at 4 years old when his parents bought him his first console: the Sega Genesis. His love for horror games started from buying a mint condition Resident Evil 2 at a yard sale and was too spooked as a kid to play it until years later where he learned to love it. The love for JRPGs began around this time too as he found comfort in Final Fantasy 4 after his initial zombie scare. Today he still plays both franchises and on his spare time likes to visit art walks and museums, find hole in the wall restaurants, hikes, and do some freelance story writing (or at least attempt to).
