Need a D-Pad For the Switch? HORI Thinks So Too

Hori is set to release a D-pad Joycon for the Nintendo Switch this July in Japan. With this being a third party controller, it will lack the tech inside the original Joycons. So, don’t expect HD Rumble, gyro sensors, accelerometer, wireless, or, the biggest set back of all is the lack of using the Joycon wirelessly.

This means it can only be used when the Nintendo Switch is in portable mode. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative for a Joycon with a better D-pad than the originals, and you play a lot of platformers, fighters, or arcade shooters, this Hori D-pad Joycon might be for you. The Hori D-Pad Joycon will retail this July for 2,480 Yen before tax, which converts to about $24.00 USD.
