The Nintendo Switch does many things incredibly well. The compact design, the dual nature of playing on the TV or on the go, hell, with the OLED it even has a beautiful screen now, but one thing has annoyed players since 2017. While the Joy-Cons are perfectly functional, many would say they’re not particularly comfortable, and that’s where Hori comes in.
The Hori Split Pad Pro is a beefy little contraption, working much like regular Joy-Cons snapping on the side of the device, but with a lot more surface area to grab onto, feeling like a Switch Pro controller cut in two, and slapped on either side of the device. While it’s not wireless and only compatible with handheld gaming, the Split Pad Pro has become a favourite for players who use handheld often, this writer included.
Thanks to the success of the Hori Split Pad Pro, there are a bunch of different designs to choose from, including special editions featuring Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokémon, Monster Hunter, and even PAC-MAN. Upgrade your handheld gaming just in time for the holidays, with our Hori Split PadPro buying guide.
