Amazon has taken a tenner off the chonky Hori Split Pad Pro for Nintendo Switch, bringing the controller attachment down to just £34.99.
While it’s clearly on the bulky side, having something that’s similar to a full Xbox controller can certainly make playing games in handheld mode much more comfortable for longer periods of time. I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt my thumbs cramping up after a while with the Switch joycons.
Other features of the accessory include a proper d-pad (thank you!), programmable buttons on the rear and a good old turbo mode. Just to be clear, though, you can’t attach the two parts together to make some homebrew Switch Pro Controller. They have to be attached to the console to be powered up and you can even leave it attached while docked.
The Hori Split Pad Pro is officially licensed by Nintendo as well, so this is a well-made bit of kit. It’s definitely not like some of the horrendous third party abominations usually seen passed off onto an unfortunate player two. Speaking of that, we do have a look at some options if you’re after a quality cheap Switch Pro controller at Jelly Deals.

This version is the Daemon X Machina Edition, though that branding seems to extend to little more than the game’s ‘X’ logo on one of the face buttons. Apart from that, it seems relatively indistinct. Well worth considering now it’s down from its usual price of £44.99.
