The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is Nintendo’s expensive attempt to add a more traditional control option to the console. Anyone that owns a Nintendo Switch knows for a fact that the Joy-Con grip — the standard controller that comes with the console has its flaws, it’s cramped for one thing, this forces the players to hold their hands very close together, and it also lacks a proper directional pad, and several buttons can be awkward to reach.

If you’re not in the mood to spend extra cash on a Nintendo Switch Pro controller and you already have Dual Shock 4 controller laying around, 8bitdo has a tiny wireless USB adapter that’ll allow you use a number of controllers with the Switch. 8bitdo — a company best known for its aftermarket retro-style controllers — released the $19.99 called the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter that includes support for all 8bitdo controllers, as well as both the Dual Shock 3 and Dual Shock 4 from Sony.
