Hori has pulled back the screen on several new Pokemon-themed controllers that will be released for the Nintendo Switch in the next few weeks. Regardless of how you like to control the system, it seems that the peripheral developer has a fascinating choice, including split pad pro controllers, wireless controllers, wired controllers and de-pad controllers. All of these designs have been provided with alternative graphics in the past, but the Pokemon theme should entice those who have opted out of purchase. It should be noted that Hori’s controllers are officially licensed by Nintendo, so buyers do not have to worry about certain issues affecting third party peripherals.
The Split Pad Pro controller comes in two different Pokemon-themed offerings: one with Picachu and Evie, the other with just Picachu. The Split Pad Pro controller adds a bit more and replaces the familiar joy-cons. For those who enjoy using Pro Controller, this is essentially half of that partition (hence the name). Split Pad Pro Controllers Retail $ 59.99.
The D-Pad controller looks like a traditional left joy-con, but it replaces the four buttons with a D-pad. This is just one thing for those who enjoy 2D fighting games like Street Fighter! However, it should be noted that the D-Pad controller works exclusively in handheld mode. It has a black finish with yellow lightning bolts and everyone’s favorite electric-mouse type! The D-Pad controller retails for 24.99.
For those looking for a little difference in Nintendo’s Switch Pro controller, the Picachu Wireless Horipod Controller offers a similar experience at a slightly lower price. For those who are a little depressed for Pokemon fans, it still has Pikachu front and center, but mostly black with the rest of the controller. It does not support amoeba and does not have the rumble feature, but it just does. Retails at 49.99.
Last but not least, the wired haripad controllers are priced at $ 24.99. Players have a little less room to turn around, but this is a cheaper option, and it has the same artwork as the SplitPad Pro controllers. If this is not good enough for Pokemon, Hori has a pair of switch vault cases, some of which are the most popular Pokemon at $ 19.99.
