Unleashing the Retro Fighters BattlerGC Pro

When it comes to crafting epic custom controllers for our favorite gaming machines, Retro Fighters consistently answers the call. Known for their innovative wireless remotes for retro consoles like the N64 and the original Xbox, which we recently reviewed, they’ve now announced a pro-controller for the GameCube—loaded with all the mod-cons you’d expect from a controller released in 2024. Enter the BattlerGC Pro, and let me tell you, this controller is an absolute beast!

A Leap from Wired to Wireless

While wired controllers might tug at our nostalgic heartstrings, wireless controllers have been a game-changer. No one really wants to be tethered to the floor instead of lounging on the sofa, just to play games on the TV across the room. And let’s be real, although we adore you, GameCube, untethered gaming is hands down the winner every time.

“From its ergonomic shape, feel, and placement of buttons to its colors and high-tech internal components, every part of the BattlerGC Pro has been thoughtfully engineered to amplify your skill and performance.” – Retro Fighters

Isn’t it a beauty? This controller is compatible with the GameCube—including the Game Boy Player add-on—the Nintendo Switch, and your PC. It uses Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz wireless technology to ensure seamless connectivity while you game. It’s accurate to the hilt too, thanks to Hall effect analog sticks that eliminate drift issues—past, present, and future!

Innovative Features and Superior Design

The analog sticks are custom-designed specifically for the BattlerGC Pro. The controller also features analog triggers with a GameCube-style digital button. Not to mention, it incorporates Dpad Kailh® integrated switches—ultra-thin mechanical keyboard switches known for their durability. Additionally, it boasts two Z buttons, standard L & R triggers, and programmable triggers on the back.

Battery Life and Connectivity

Players can expect around 10 hours of gaming from the BattlerGC Pro after a quick USB-C fast charge—a feature I always appreciate and expect in modern controllers. Plus, you can game from as far as 30 feet away from your TV, which should be more than enough unless you live in a mansion. Sadly, I don’t.
