The Hori Split Pad Pro is one of the best Nintendo Switch controllers you can buy, as it equips your Switch with Joy-Cons that feel more like proper console controllers. The analog sticks feel great, the buttons are big, and the D-pad is an actual D-pad. The only version that’s been available so far is based on last year’s Daemon X Machina, but Hori has finally announced three new colours for the Split Pad Pro: Black, Volcanic Red, and Midnight Blue. All three are available to pre-order right now for $50 each and will become available on September 7.
The new colours look great, even the basic Black, which features a translucent shell similar to the Nintendo Switch Pro controller. Other than the colour change, nothing about the actual design has been changed. Thankfully, this is for the better, as the original was already a great way to play games.
