PowerA Releasing Mario & Zelda Themed Controllers For Switch

One of the biggest complaints that many people have about Switch controllers right now is the cost. To get a new Pro Controller would set you back $69.99 and a new complete set of Joy-con controllers would set you back $79.99. Accessory manufacturer PowerA may have a solution for people looking for something on a smaller budget.

Beginning on October 23rd they’ll be releasing two wired Pro Controllers for the Switch featuring Mario and Zelda themed imaging. The Mario controller is red and comes with many of the most famous icons of the series on them. The Zelda controller is black and features some nice imagery of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Both controllers cost $29.99 and come with customizable analog triggers. You can interchange them with three varying heights to give you as much or little movement as you like. They also feature a 10ft removable wire to connect to the Switch dock.  They do not, however, come with HD Rumble or gyro controls so games featuring that functionality may not work completely.  However, I think the price advantage alone outweighs those features.

Both are available on Amazon here and here.
