We Nintendo Switch owners all know it: The Joy-Cons aren’t the best. With Joy-Con drift coming for everyone eventually and the overall discomfort of holding onto them for too long (let alone playing with a single Joy-Con for any extended amount of time), it’s essential to have a separate controller to have as a backup.
The totally wireless Nintendo Switch Pro Controller mimics that of a more traditional controller that you’ll be familiar with if you also have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. It includes everything you get in the Joy-Con like motion controls and HD rumble, but with an added amiibo functionality and a more ergonomic design. It’s 100% proven to make you better at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, too. (Trust us, it’s science.)
