PowerA Reveals a Beautiful New ZELDA Themed Controller for Nintendo Switch
PowerA has released some great, officially licensed accessories for the Nintendo Switch. Today, it has announced that it is releasing a new one. They have announced a new Enhanced Wireless Controller with artwork of Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The controller connects to your Switch via Bluetooth 5.0 and runs on two AA batteries. All the crucial features of modern controllers are also included, including motion controls for compatible games. In addition, there are two Advanced Gaming Buttons on the back that can be mapped for easier access in intense gaming situations. Also, the D-Pad is an actual D-pad and not just four buttons pretending to be one.
The big thing missing from the PowerA controller is the HD Rumble. If you don’t care about the rumble feature though, this looks like a fantastic controller that may be a bit more comfortable than the joy-con. It is also missing amiibo NFC and IR which may be a con for some out there, but that’s why we have joy-con, right? Here’s the full list of specifications:
Bluetooth wireless freedom
Motion controls included for intuitive game interactions
Features Advanced Gaming Buttons for on-the-fly button mapping
Ergonomic design for comfort during extended gaming sessions
Switch system buttons (+, -, Home, Capture)
Left/Right shoulder buttons and triggers (L/R/ZL/ZR)
Two precision-tuned analogue sticks
8-way plus-shaped metallic colour D-pad
Nintendo ABXY button layout (larger than Joy-Con)
White Princess Zelda design with blue metallic D-pad

Includes two AA batteries for up to 30 hours of gameplay
