Battler GC vs. Blade GC - Differences?

The BattlerGC and the BladeGC are identical in almost every way, except for the location of the analog stick and the D-Pad. If Smash Brothers is your thing, you'll love the placement of the analog stick located at the top-left of the BattlerGC.

If you like to play GameBoy games, you may prefer the larger D-pad on the BladeGC.

Or, better yet, why choose? Get 'em both!

    Battler GC Controller

    Posted by Nathaniel L on Jul 6th 2024

    This controller is great. I have one Wavebird as well as this controller, and this one feels nicer in the hands and is actually lighter. It takes a bit of getting used to because it is considerably wider than a GameCube controller. I often hit the screenshot button instead of start when I first used it, but that is the only big difference I struggled with. It works great concurrently with other controllers and has low latency, a very good controller

    Great Controller Overall

    Posted by Jeremy Laumer on Jun 27th 2024

    This controller is great for wireless play on the Gamecube. It`s comfortable to hold, has the GC button layout, and has almost no wireless connectivity problems. If you don`t need the analog trigger ``click`` for anything you play, then these are great. The only reason I am rating this 4 stars is that it has a known bug when playing Rogue Leader Rogue Squadron with a Prism, or other digital out based HDMI converter device. This is known by the manufacturer and a fix is in progress. If you don`t want to play Rogue Leader, then there really are no issues with this controller.

    Dope controller

    If you`re like me and didn`t really like the old school gc controller, this mf`r right here is a really good substitute. Hall effect sticks are a nice touch. Def recommended my Bois.

    Excellent! The controller works as well as I had hoped it would and feels great. I can`t notice any lag with the included GC wireless dongle. The dongle does have a super bright LED that I find to be somewhat distracting, but that`s nothing a little black tape can`t fix.

    Great Modern Solution

    Great replacement or upgrade for the original controller. I have this and the Blade and feel this is better for traditional GameCube feel. Shoutout to Stone Age Gamer for great customer service, they replaced a faulty dongle I received without hassle, much appreciated!

    Nice Designed Controller

    Posted by Patrick Barrett on Jul 31st 2023

    I got this controller a little over a week ago and so far it`s great! It has a nice design that fits your hands well. You can feel the quality too! Much better than most 3rd party controllers that I`ve come across!

    Great Budget GC Controller

    Posted by Vladlust on Apr 20th 2023

    For the price, this is a fantastic GC controller. It comes with both a dongle for GC and Wii, plus a second USB dongle for other devices, it pairs super fast and has a lot of useful functions like turbo and a turn off toggle, and even though it`s not exactly like an original controller because of the shape, the button layout is more than enough for it to feel like the original.

    I give it 4 stars though since it doesn`t feel like a high quality controller because of the plastic it`s made off and how light it is, plus the ZR/ZL buttons are not optimal for certain GC titles. But for the price I can`t ask for much else, I wish there was a more expensive option though that was higher quality!

    Modern Twist on a classic!

    Posted by Sean Simpson on Apr 10th 2023

    Love this controller. Wavebird Controllers are getting harder to find in good condition, this is a great option. The Battler takes what worked with the Wavebird and GameCube controller and puts it in a style controller for a great price.
