This custom Joy-Con may sound like a great idea for "retro games and fighting games" but keep in mind the product does come with a considerable downside.

Hori, the peripheral company making the custom Joy-Con will NOT feature the following: an accelerometer, gyro sensor, wireless connection, SL or SR button support, Player LED or Sync. Meaning players will only have the option of using the custom Joy-Con when attached the Nintendo Switch.


Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
