Guide: The Best Nintendo Switch Controllers

Now that the Nintendo Switch has been out for a while, we’ve got a few more controller options to consider. While the official Joy-Con are rather lovely for using docked on your Switch in handheld mode, or when using the motion controls in games like ARMS, they might not be the most comfortable for long gaming sessions. Thankfully, there are plenty of alternatives to consider.

Here are your options for official and third-party controllers on the Switch for July 2018:

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con

Of course, your Nintendo Switch came bundled with two lovely Joy-Con controllers, but if you’re anything like us you’ll want to pick some more up for multiplayer action. We have some nice colour options for you below, and don’t forget that you can mix and match this colours to your heart’s content!

Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers

The official Switch Pro Controller is a must-have purchase for playing games when docked, these can be found in a range of colours. The controller is rechargeable via USB-C, fully wireless, supports NFC, motion controls and of course it has that lovely HD Rumble! Be sure to check out our full review here.

Go Retro With 8BitDo

We’re big fans of 8BitDo’s SN30 Pro, it is perfect for playing retro games and it is wireless and has a rechargeable battery. While it doesn’t support NFC, it does offer motion controls and a non-HD rumble feature. 8BitDo has a range of new pads on the horizon, and it’s worth noting that some of its older pads – like the SNES30 – also work on Switch.
