A modder has successfully built a set of fully-functioning GameCube Joy-Cons for Nintendo Switch, and after several months of working on the project, creator Shank Mods has now uploaded a detailed look at how he set about building them.
“The theory behind this project is simple: take a set of real Joy-Cons, tear them down to bare components, put them in a GameCube controller and wire buttons and sticks to the Joy-Con’s board,” he said.
“In reality, getting it all to work wasn’t so easy. It required several months of planning and hard work and also required a significant redesign of the GameCube controller’s internals, with custom 3D printed components.”
He added: “This project was so much work, but I’m really happy with how it came out.”

“These JoyCons are real, but they are not for sale. They were a pain to make, and I will not be making another set,” Shank Mods posted along with the video.
That …seems fair, yes.
