Find the perfect controller to suit your gaming style with a variety of Nintendo Switch Specialty Controllers
Nintendo is behind many of the most innovative and unique controller designs over the course of gaming history. Each new Nintendo console generation seems to bring with it new designs, often featuring a radical departure from anything players may have expected or seen before. For this reason it’s not surprising that there is such a broad, diverse selection of Nintendo Switch Specialty Controllers for players to choose from.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is broadly considered to be one of the best controllers compatible with the console. The Pro Controller adopts the style favoured more broadly by the industry at large, closely resembling the shape and button configuration of popular controllers like Sony’s Dual Shock 4. It plays wirelessly and can be charged using the same USB Type C cable that charges the Nintendo Switch console itself. In comparison to the Nintendo Switch Joy Con controller, the Pro Controller offers a sturdier design and more precision control for an upgraded Switch gaming experience.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is well known for its excellent battery life. It takes roughly 6 hours to fully charge, but is reported to last as long as 40 hours on a single charge—significantly longer than other similar controllers with internal batteries. This feature combined with its quality construction is why many players laud the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller as their favourite modern gamepad.
Other Specialty Controllers for the Nintendo Switch
With the release of the immensely popular Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, many manufacturers are offering Switch-compatible specialty controllers in the design of the original Nintendo Gamecube controller—a fan favourite and the most popular configuration for playing games in the Smash Bros. franchise. These controllers come in a variety of aesthetic designs, many of which are branded for popular Smash Bros. fighters, such as Mario, Link, and Pikachu.
These wired controllers must be plugged in directly to the Switch dock via the USB port, but since they do not run on battery power, players do not need to worry about keeping them charged. Wired controllers that feature a more traditional modern gamepad design are also available for the Switch console.
Some Nintendo Switch specialty controllers are designed with compatibility for a specific game in mind, such as the Poké Ball Plus for Nintendo Switch. This controller resembles an actual Poké Ball, and is compatible only with Pokémon games such as Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee!, as well as Pokémon Go on mobile devices.
Specialty controller accessories are also available to create a more immersive gaming experience on Nintendo Switch. The steering wheel accessory for example is designed to mount a Joy Con controller, using motion control to mimic the movement and feel of a real steering wheel for racing games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Simultaneous supported controllers on the Nintendo Switch.
Believe it or not, the Nintendo Switch can support up to eight controllers at one time—the perfect feature for games with local support for up to eight players at a time, such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This means you can never truly have too many Nintendo Switch specialty controllers! From the Nintendo Joy Con to the Pro Controller, various styles of game pads, controller accessories, and more, there is a huge variety of Nintendo Switch specialty controllers to choose from.
