Picked one up from Sainsbury’s Oakley (Cheltenham) today. It actually feels really nice to hold, a good weight and for someone with big hands like me, really comfortable. Didn’t realise the dpad pops off to reveal the buttons underneath. Can’t think why you would want to do that but it’s nice to have the option.
the Zelda / Mario / Splatoon ones are manufactured by PDP. this is manufactured by Hori and is infinitely better in terms of build quality.
Nice controller but the dpad is awful
If this is like the Legend of Zelda one that was on sale from Smyth's. This is a nice budget range controller. Much better than the Joy cons. The analogue doesn't feel terrible and is fairly light. Did me well on a few games of paladins. But I prefer the joycons on stuff like Octopath traveler. :)
I'm sort of surprised anyone wired controllers any more, especially for the Switch. Seem to me that one forgetful moment could lead to the console being dragged to the floor and probably ruined. Aren't the third party controllers of choice the 8Bitdo Pro controllers for between £25 and £30?
