- A very excellent controller, one of the best I've used.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
The Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller is a premium product boasting premium grips and a semi-transparent casing. It has the same buttons as the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode, and is designed to be held and operated more easily than the Joy-Con Controllers! The primary difference in the controls is that while the directional controls on the Joy-Con (L) are made up of different buttons, the Pro Controller has a single + Control Pad, similar to previous systems.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller contains 2 linear resonant actuators, each with independent HD Rumble capabilities, creating a similar effect as with the Joy-Con Controllers. The HD rumble function included in the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller creates an immersive gameplay experience that isn’t possible with images and sounds alone.
You can also use amiibo on your Nintendo Switch by tapping them to the NFC touchpoint on the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller!
This accessory comes with a USB Type-C connector and a USB Type-C cable that allows you to charge it.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller battery life is approximately 40 hours. Please note: this is the estimated battery life. This may vary depending on the usage conditions.
