New Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch Controllers Available To Preorder At Amazon

PowerA is adding a pair of wired Nintendo Switch controllers to its extensive lineup, both of which release on Valentine's Day.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans can add two new Nintendo Switch controllers to their collections next month. The adorable controllers featuring Tom Nook and Isabelle are available to preorder now at Amazon for $25 each. Both controllers release on February 14, and Prime members can get release-day delivery just in time for Valentine's Day.

The Tom Nook controller is blue and features a graphic of the entrepreneurial raccoon, while the Isabelle controller is yellow to match the fan favorite's hair.

The officially licensed controllers are manufactured by PowerA, a company that has become the de facto maker of third-party Nintendo Switch controllers based on popular franchises. PowerA's wired controllers are shaped much like the Pro controller, with an ergonomic design and identical button layout. While wired controllers aren't for everyone, PowerA controllers have a lengthy 10-foot cable. Also, the budget price makes these controllers a great pick for those who partake in the occasional multiplayer gaming session.

The new pair of controllers are just the latest in a growing collection of Animal Crossing controllers from PowerA. Last year, PowerA released a pair of wireless controllers and a wired controller featuring the faces of a variety of island residents. If you'd prefer a wireless controller, the K.K. Slider-themed PowerA model is on sale for $39, and a Nooklings-themed gamepad is discounted to $40.
