When it comes to accessories, the Nintendo Switch has a dizzying variety on offer. One of the best is the Hori D-Pad Controller, which is a Joy-Con equipped with a D-Pad. It made our best Switch controllers list, and now it's on sale.
All three variations of the Hori D-Pad Joy-Con are currently on sale. You can pick up the Zelda-themed one for $20, the Pikachu version for $20, and the Mario edition for $15. They can only be used in handheld mode, and unfortunately, don't feature any rumble or motion controls.
As someone who has tested a multitude of controllers for the Nintendo Switch, some games just need a D-Pad. The recently added SNES games hammer this point home pretty hard, so if you're looking for something that feels a bit more comfortable with Super Mario World, Super Metroid, or any of the other classics, then you could do a lot worse than Hori's D-Pad Joy-Con.
