8Bitdo has made a funky Switch controller without any joysticks...and it looks surprisingly intuitive.

The adept controller-makers at 8bitdo have outdone themselves this time. Introducing the new compact Switch Lite pocket controller, a new peripheral that's as portable as Nintendo's new $199 handheld-only system. Not only does the controller slide right into your pocket for easy carrying, but it sports two d-pads to prevent the dreaded JoyCon drift (and it also won't snag when dropped in a pocket or a bag).

The controllers look pretty cheap-but-durable, and quickly allows gamers to swap into Tabletop Mode on the Switch Lite for easy multiplayer. The peripherals sport built-in turbo buttons, a split d-pad to simulate an actual D-pad on a regular JoyCon controller, and the RT and LT triggers are at the top like old-school SNES bumpers.

These pocket controllers are also compatible with Windows, Steam, and Raspberry Pi. No pricing or availability has been confirmed.
