Nintendo Switch Joy-Con drifting? These Hori replacements are just $20 right now

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con drift is (still) a real problem, but with official controllers holding their $79.99 MSRPs pretty close, finding a quick, affordable replacement while your original is being fixed isn’t always easy. That’s where Hori’s officially licensed D-Pad controllers come in – and right now you can pick up these controllers for just $19.99 (opens in new tab) in Amazon’s Nintendo Switch deals  (previously $24.99). 

You’re only saving $5 here, but we seldom see too much off the original price here – this is the cheapest these Zelda and Pokemon models have been all year. Plus, it beats dropping $80 on a whole new official set. The Hori D-Pad Nintendo Switch controllers also have another trick up their sleeve – and the clue’s in the name. 

Gone are the small quad buttons, and instead you’ll find a full real-life d-pad here – perfect if you prefer the feel of a traditional controller under your thumb. We’ve only ever seen the Zelda model $5 cheaper in previous Nintendo Switch deals, but that was way back in October and prices haven’t shifted too far since. Plus, the Pokemon version has never seen a discount larger than this one. 

You’ll find both of these Joy-Con alternatives just below, and plenty more Nintendo Switch deals further down the page.
