Ask a Question

Q: Is this the while joycon or just the dpad?

Chobin 2 years ago
Best Answer :

This has a D-Pad, instead of four individual directional buttons.  The upside is that it makes some games, like 2-D fighters and shooters, a bit easier to play.  The downside is that it is not a regular Joy Con, in that it can only be used when connected to your Switch in portable mode.  Another thing to consider is the excess plastic around the release button on the back.  With regular Joy Cons, you can use clip-on handles to make your Switch more comfortable to hold, but with this on instead of the standard one, most handles will no longer fit.

Q: Is the controller not stickers right

Josey777 6 months ago
Best Answer :

Not a skin, this is a functional left Joy Con, though only when physically connected to a Switch.  It does not work while detached nor does it have any additional features (rumble, motion, Amibo reader).

It's an alright D-Pad

I've used far better D-Pads than this one but for the only one that's available on a Joycon right now, it's pretty decent. There's no real flaws or anything but in terms of feel it's just around a C+ if I had to rate it. I played all of Belmont's Revenge on the Castlevania Collection using this without any real issues.

Works fine! Needs battery.

Works fine. Would be worth $10 more for a battery so you could play wirelessly.

An amazing D-pad with good handheld use. Only wish it was wireless so you could use it in a grip but sadly its handheld mode only. Only recommended if you play a good amount of 2D stuff.

The normal Joy-Cons lack a D-pad if you want a D-pad for your switch this is the perfect solution. Although it only works in Handheld mode it is fine, if you play platformers on the go this is exactly what you need. Only downside being the lack of Rumble and Wireless Connection however, for what it offers it is perfect!

I Love This D-Pad Joy-Con!

The Nintendo Switch Mario D-Pad Left Joy-Con from Hori is a great addition to your Nintendo Switch. The D-Pad Joy-Con is meant for use in handheld mode ONLY, this is not a wireless controller, it is meant to give lightening accuracy on a variety of puzzle, fighting and Nintendo Switch platformers. The controller itself feels well made and it is light, it's definitely lighter than a normal Joy-Con. It slides easily on and off of the left side of the Switch. I love the Mario graphics on this controller, they definitely make this controller pop and make it easier to locate. I used it while playing Pac-Man and Pac-Man VS. and I could tell the difference between the D-Pad and using the Joystick - the D-Pad let me make my turns quicker which made my game play better. I would recommend this controller to those that like to play classic games on their Switch (it also works with some newer games).
