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.


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).
