Prolific accessory maker Hori is back at it again with new Super Mario and Legend of Zelda-themed controllers for your Nintendo Switch.

Officially called the Nintendo Switch Wireless Battle Pad, these are GameCube-style controllers that can wirelessly connect to your Switch. They have a rechargeable battery that should last for up to 15 hours, “anti-snapback” analog sticks, and are officially licensed by Nintendo.

The product listings note that you can swap the L/R and ZL/ZR functions to play how you want, or “get really wild with Turbo settings”, but it’s worth bearing in mind that some of the official Pro Controller’s features – like amiibo functionality and HD Rumble – won’t be included here.

Both controllers are scheduled to launch in May, so any orders you make now should be shipped in a couple of months’ time.

Are you liking the look of these? Thinking of treating yourself? Let us know in the usual place.
