This essential Switch accessory is $10 off today.
The Joy-Con controllers for the Nintendo Switch are a really neat invention, but sometimes you just wanna play with a comfortable, classic-feel controller like our favorite older consoles got us used to. Luckily, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller exists, and right now it’s on sale at Amazon for $60. That saves you $10 off its regular price, and is $9 above the deal we saw for it during Cyber Monday.
The Pro Controller is perfect for anyone who feels like the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers are too small for their hands. It’s a bit larger than standard gaming controllers, but it feels great to hold and it’s not big enough where players with small hands wouldn’t enjoy using it too. It takes the guesswork out of “how do I use these Joy-Cons?” and lets you focus on the game at hand.
Sure, you lose some of the Switch’s uniqueness by playing with this controller, but you’ll probably find it a bit easier to navigate in games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate once you do.
This controller is wireless and includes features such as motion controls, HD rumble, built-in amiibo functionality and more. It also comes with a USB-C cable for charging, though you won’t need it too often as this controller has a battery life of around 40 hours. Whether you’re playing a game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Splatoon 2, the Pro Controller is always the right fit. At Amazon, over 1,800 customers left a review for it resulting in a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars.
