While you’re not in need of choices in terms of controllers for the Nintendo Switch, if you happen to’re brief on money you’re unlikely to have the ability to decide all of them up.
At $50/£40 for a single Joy-Con and $70/£60 for the Switch Pro controller, Nintendo has created a little bit of a predicament the place many gamers have to decide on whether or not they need one other peripheral or a few new video games to play with them.
Fortunately, although, Nintendo isn’t averse to permitting third-parties to create inexpensive alternate options. One such third-party is PowerA and it’s revealed two new Switch Pro controllers themed across the console’s largest video games – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.
The Zelda controller has a black and gold colour scheme with Sheikah patterns and a bow-wielding Link emblazoned on its entrance whereas the Super Mario Odyssey controller is a brilliant purple, shaded with iconic objects from the Mushroom Kingdom and a leaping Mario silhouette.
What’s the catch?
While themed controllers can typically go down the too-ugly-to-be-held path, these definitely don’t and to make them much more interesting they value a really affordable £29.99/$29.99.
Naturally, there’s a catch to this comparatively low worth – these controllers are wired and don’t seem to have Nintendo’s HD Rumble function. Still, if you happen to’re searching for a pleasant full-sized controller for multiplayer gaming classes these are an inexpensive choice.
