Hori Split Pad Pro – Tears of the Kingdom edition

The Hori Split Pad Pro is highly recommended by GameSpot as the best Switch controller for handheld-focused players. Its full-sized design offers a more comfortable gaming experience in handheld mode compared to the standard Joy-Cons. The larger buttons, sticks, triggers, and D-pad provide relief for those with larger hands who find the stock Joy-Cons to be cramped.

In addition to the ergonomic design, the Split Pad Pro features two remappable buttons on the back and a turbo function. However, it does not support vibration or NFC for Amiibo, and can only be used in handheld mode, ruling out motion control or solo Joy-Con functionality for multiplayer.

Priced at $60, the Tears of the Kingdom-themed Split Pad Pro not only offers comfort but also showcases the key art from the game, evoking memories of exploring the vast world of The Legend of Zelda. It’s a blend of beauty and functionality that any Zelda fan would appreciate.

Looking ahead to the release of The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom in September, the Tears of the Kingdom Split Pad Pro provides a fitting controller option for the upcoming game. As a new Zelda-themed Nintendo Switch Lite console is set to launch alongside Echoes of Wisdom on September 26, those who plan on getting the special edition Lite may not have a use for the Split Pad Pro unless they also own a regular Switch or Switch OLED.
