There are quite a lot of Pro Controller alternatives for the Switch out there. Japanese manufacturer HORI has especially been making quite a lot of them, and now it’s adding yet another to the list: the new Wireless HoriPad.
The new controller has a more angular design than the official version but retains the same general visual theme. Still, like most other Pro Controller alternatives, this controller does ditch a lot of key features. While you keep wireless functionality and a gyroscope and accelerometer for motion controls, you’ll be losing HD Rumble and NFC. The Wireless HoriPad also only charges through micro-USB, rather than USB Type-C.
Still, despite all its reductions, one thing that is nice is that it’s going for ¥ 5,480. That puts it at the equivalent of close to $50 US. If HORI does officially bring it over to the West, expect to pay far less than an official Pro Controller.
