Introducing the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con and Pro Controllers

by Daniel VuckovicOctober 20, 2016

It wouldn’t be a Nintendo console without a different number of ways to play it. The Switch features two controllers which by default are attached to the system but can also be removed. Those two controllers can then be used by one person similar to the Wii Nunchuck setup or by two people for multiplayer locally around the machine. To support this the Switch has a kickstand on the back to prop up the screen.

The two Joy-Con controllers can also be attached to ‘Joy-Con Grip accessory’ and then it resembles more of a ‘normal’ controller. Don’t like new things and want to play the traditional way? Well lucky for you Nintendo has a brand new Pro Controller as well, they’ve even got back to the asymmetrical analogue sticks.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.
