That chonky Hori Split Pad Pro Switch controller is now available to order

More than a handful.

When Martin first saw the Hori Split Pad Pro controller in June he called it "seriously hardcore" and I definitely don't disagree with him. Well, if you've had an eye on it since then, you can now get your very own.

Acting like a pair of giant Joy-Con controllers, the Split Pad Pro is intended to give you full-size controller experience when using the Switch in handheld mode. That means larger grips, bigger triggers, a far superior d-pad and some programmable rear buttons for extra features such as turbo mode.

That's what I call a devil trigger.

It's a substantial piece of kit and one that should definitely have some benefits if you often play some of the more action-heavy Switch games in handheld mode. Understandably, this version is tied in with the release of Daemon X Machina, though I suspect it'll be just as useful with the likes of Astral Chain, too.

In the UK, the Hori Split Pad Pro will ship from 30th September. It's already being dispatched in the US, though you might find it temporarily out of stock. Still, orders are being accepted and new deliveries are expected soon.

If you want to take the opposite approach to this controller and reduced your Switch even further, then you'll probably want to check out the Switch Lite when it launches on Friday. We've been monitoring the best price for Switch Lite over at Jelly Deals, or you can head to Amazon UK where the Turquoise, Grey and Yellow colours are 199.99.

Also, Amazon still has some great prices on Switch microSD cards, including this 200 GB card for 22.29 or a 128 GB card for 13.49.

You can always find offers on the best Nintendo Switch SD cards over at Jelly Deals, along with some of the best Nintendo Switch Lite accessories and cheap Switch Online prices.
