There’s no shortage of solid third-party Nintendo Switch controllers. 8BitDo’s line of Switch controllers is arguably the best from a performance perspective, with the 8BitDo Ultimate and Pro 2 controllers leading the way. If you’re looking for something with more style, third-party manufacturers such as PDP and PowerA have plenty to choose from. These products often carry lower price tags than the official Switch Pro Controller from Nintendo–and they’re available in a wide range of designs, making it easy to find something that fits your style. If you’re a Zelda fan in search of a new gamepad, you’ll want to swing by Amazon right now, as the retailer is slashing prices on a few gorgeous Hyrule-inspired controllers.
One of the best Zelda gamepad deals is for the PDP Rematch Enhanced Wireless Controller, as it’s just $35 (down from $45). This is the lowest-ever price for the gamepad, and since it features mappable back buttons, an ergonomic form factor, and a striking green and gold design, it’s a suitable companion for Tears of the Kingdom. It’s also officially licensed by Nintendo, so you know it’ll work flawlessly with your system.
Two PowerA controllers are up for grabs, with one offering a sleek blue and black design (on sale for $48) and the other boasting a simple white design with a bit of Zelda iconography placed throughout the gamepad (on sale for just $33).
If you don’t mind picking up an unlicensed product, the IINE Switch Controller + Carrying Case is just $36, while the controller alone is $30. Consider giving it a look if you need something for Player Two. Though we haven’t tested this particular controller, it has a lot of solid Amazon customer reviews.
