More good news for the upcoming Nintendo.
The Nintendo Switch ditches the gimmickry that the past few Nintendo console controllers have imbibed, and instead goes back to the basics- a standard, asymmetric, dual analog controller, with four action, a D-pad, buttons, two triggers, two bumpers, and some system buttons.
Of course, the standard controller does come with its own hook- its modular nature, that lets you split it up and use it in a variety of ways, including analogous to a Wii Remote, or an NES Controller. The modular nature can be ignored, however, and you can focus on just the standard controller as is.
For those of you who would rather just have a plain old standard controller, with not even the option to have options provided, Nintendo have prepared the Switch Pro controller. It looks really comfortable- and that’s because it might just be the most comfortable controller ever made.
Thats what Nicky, the guy in the Switch reveal trailer, and someone who had the chance to use a real Switch console and controller, feels. He feels that the Switch Pro controller may be the best controller he has ever had the chance to use.
‘The Pro controller is probably one of the most comfortable controllers I have ever held in my hands. Honestly, by a good margin, it’s the most comfortable controller I have ever held,’ he said in an interview with GameXplain, noting that his previous favorite controller was the Xbox One controller- so we know the man has good taste.
The Nintendo Switch, as well as, presumably, the Switch Pro controller, is due to launch in March 2017 worldwide.
