Too good to be true?
When it comes to the Switch Joy-Con, joystick drifting is a major issue for many. The situation got so bad that Nintendo had to open a repairs/replacement program in multiple territories, North America included. This has caused immense frustration for countless Switch owners.
When it comes to the Switch Pro Controller, the complaints of joystick drift are pretty much non-existent. There are a handful of cases here and there, but by and large, it’s within the margin of error you’d expect on most controllers. Still, one company thinks they can do better by offering a Pro-style Switch controller that’ll never have drift issues.
The GuliKit KingKong 2 Pro Controller uses new patented electromagnet stick technology, which they say will stave off joystick drift forever. While that’s the $70 controller’s biggest selling point, there are a number of other fancy features included:
- New Patented Buttons With Conductive Rubber Feel
- Supports Switch Console Wake-up
- Supports wired and wireless play
- Built-in rechargeable lithium battery can run for up to 25 hours on a full charge
- Exclusive, Patented with no Dead Zone
- amiibo support
- gyroscope support
- full vibration feedback
If this seems like a must-have controller to you, you can pick one up via Amazon.
