The Nintendo Switch is such a unique type of video games console, one type of controller simply won’t cut it. The good news is that you get two gamepads right out of the box in the form of Joy-Con, which stay attached to the Switch screen for handheld play but can be broken off and shared between two players for independent use. There is, however, more than just one way to play.
Jumping in as player two has never been easier than on Switch, but there are loads more Nintendo Switch controller options to consider. You see, while tilting a joy-con on its side is good, any game that demands precise control is better played on a gamepad specifically designed for undocked play. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a good example of this, but other viable options include those developed by PowerA and other throwback-style or limited-edition controllers.
