The Switch Pro Controller is an official alternative gamepad for the Nintendo Switch. It features a design closely resembling the controllers used by the Xbox and its successors, while having its own unique design elements at the same time.

Hardware[edit]

The Pro Controller has two, fully analog control sticks; one at the top-left and the other at the bottom-right near the center of the controller (a similar design is seen on all gamepad-type Xbox controllers). It has a body design that closely resembles a 360 controller while retaining the face button layout from older Nintendo gamepads (ABXY from right, bottom, top, and left respectively).
