Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Back At Amazon With Rare Discount

Amazon has restocked the Switch Pro Controller, and it's even on sale.


The Nintendo Switch has been difficult to find for months now. But even if you already have one, you might be aware that accessories, namely first-party controllers, have also been in short supply. Joy-Cons and the great Nintendo Switch Pro Controller go in and out of stock almost as much as the console itself. If you've been looking for a Pro Controller to use while your Switch is docked, you can snag one for a discounted price at Amazon and Walmart right now.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller -- $59 (was $70)
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller -- $59 (was $70)

Both retailers have the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller available for $59, down from $70. The Pro Controller is our favorite first-party Nintendo Switch controller and is the best traditional gamepad you can buy for Nintendo Switch. It features stellar ergonomics, great buttons and triggers, HD rumble, NFC support for Amiibo, and a gyro sensor for motion controls. The controller charges through USB-C and runs for approximately 40 hours on a full charge.

At $59, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is a great value. I've had mine since launch day more than three years ago, and it has remained as solid as it was when I first ventured out into Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That said, there are plenty of great third-party Nintendo Switch controllers that may fit your needs just fine (or better), too. Make sure to check out our roundup of the best Nintendo Switch controllers.
