The Grip Controller


The grip controller is pretty much a tie into the upcoming shooter DAEMON X MACHINA complete with the game theme colors a replacement of the X button with the games’ logo.


The good thing is that the remote is compatible with other switch games’. The grip controller offers improvements such as a larger design, developments on the regular JOY_CONS, D-pad, more massive triggers, and a third rear button on each split remote.

They can be programmed, and it also includes a feature called continues fire turbo action, sounds like a fun button.


Missing Features

 As cool as this remote looks, a few features are missing if you compare to the JOY-CON features like the gyro sensor, HD rumble accelerometers, NFC, and the IR sensor.

What that means is that users will not be able to use motion control aiming with the new grip controller. The halves’ grip controllers only work when attached to the switch as they have no wireless capabilities.

 Is this Nintendo’s first attempt to improve the JOY-CON design?

 This improvement is not Hori’s first attempt to improve the JOY-CON. Last year they released a replacement for LEFT-HAND JOY-CON, which replace Nintendo’s push buttons with a traditional D-Pad when it first published until it had battery issues. Still, those problems have been a dress which has now paved the way for the grip controllers.
