Awesome controller, Comfortable, easy to set up amd no lag when playing. Well worth it. Makes games like GTA & any FPS actually playable on your cell phone

"Wouldn't recommend for competitive players"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After about 3 months of usage competitively in Splatoon 2, it's already beginning to show signs of faultiness. The B button on odd occasions doesn't read my inputs. This is also the case for the left joystick. Attempting to walk or swim backwards occasionally doesn't let my character move. It even has a case of stick drift in the left direction. Unless you intend to use it for more casual purposes I wouldn't recommend buying it.


Race, jump, shoot, run and more while feeling every bump and shot with the Core Controller for Nintendo Switch. The Core Controller is a full sized wired controller that provides a more ergonomic feel than with Joy-Cons alone. With its 10 foot USB cable, the Core Controller provides lag free response time and plenty of room to sit back and enjoy your favorite Switch games. A programmable turbo button allows any face buttons or triggers on the Core Controller to have turbo functionality. The Core Controller is the ideal hardware for those who want the most accurate controller, response and ergonomics for their Nintendo Switch.


  • Full sized wired controller
  • Provides a more ergonomic feel than with Joy-Cons alone
