This is the GameCube Switch controller you’ve been waiting for.
A new non-drifting wireless controller for the Nintendo Switch has been introduced by NYXI, who pride themselves on “affordable, durable, and ultra-fashionable game controllers and gaming accessories”. The controller’s GameCube-inspired design has incorporated detachable joy-cons to complement the Switch’s functions.
The controller, known as the NYXI Wizard has Hall effect analogue sticks that will not cause drift. It has also a range of many other features including: illuminating “ABXY” buttons, the favoured gamepad for Super Smash Bros Ultimate and quieter and lighter ZR/ZL buttons with less resistance and shorter trigger distance.
Furthermore, it has removable joysticks and replaceable joystick rings, mapping and adjustable turbo, long-lasting performance, screenshot function and one-key wake up as well as an ergonomic non-slip design.
I am a media and pop culture enthusiast and love Nintendo and indie games, particularly Zelda and Stardew Valley. When I’m not gaming you’ll find me writing, creating fanart, and playing music covers of my favourite games!
