The Japanese peripheral Hori was just in the headlines recently and warned customers of a Switch battery drainage problem that is currently linked to the left Joy-Con with a full D-Pad system. While we received Official words from the manufacturer, this would be resolved before the regulator's release in Western markets, the latest news is that it will arrive locally in September for $ 25.00.
The announcement comes via IGN, with the second part of the disclosure being the controller available in Zelda and Mario-themed design. It is obvious that this is not the first themed controller Hori has worked with, with the accessories manufacturer has also recently revealed Mario, Zelda and Pikachu designs for GameCube-inspired Pro Controllers.
Some important information that seems to have been forgotten is the fact that the Controller is only available for handheld use, as shown in the above package. According to the source, the low price point for Hori left Joy-Con is achieved by ruling out a number of features including Bluetooth, Gyrosensor, HD Rumble, a battery and SL / SR buttons. As a result, this traditional sofa play with the controller makes it impossible for it to be used with a grip.
Are you tempted by one of these left-handed Joy-Con controllers? Are you still concerned about the battery drainage problem or are you surprised the controller is limited to the switch's portable mode? Tell us below.
