just wondering, i can’t fathom playing mario without a proper d-pad. Hori makes a left joycon with a proper dpad for $20. they come mario and zelda themed, i don’t think anything else. but the joycon only works in handheld mode since it’s powered by the switch. otherwise it won’t work since it has no battery. so no joycon grip or anything with it.

Yeah I saw that, I'm kind of curious if anyone else bought the Hori one for other classic games and likes it or not. I have a pro controller that works great for a lot of Switch games, but I admit I'm still not a huge fan of the directional pad on it.

I didn't know such a thing existed. I'll have to think about that...

I might want one.

I like the d-pad being separated into buttons. But either way, when things get serious, I grab a pro kontroller.

Yea I have a pro for docked, that’s no issue. But in handheld that won’t really be an option

I'll admit that I usually just use the stick myself (works fine with SMB3 on the Nintendo Online Network for Switch) but it's still nice to have the option. I'm flexible, really.

I have NO issue whatsoever using the stick with New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

I don't have them but I'd bet that those NES controllers they released for Nintendo Switch Online might work. Or if you have the GameCube adaptor that will probably work too, although the GameCube dpad is definitely on the small side.
