Switch is getting a “Pupper” Controller Joy-Con Attachment

Posted on December 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Update (12/16): This is now up on Amazon. It can be ordered, though the product is temporarily out of stock. We assume orders will ship soon.


Original (12/13): Back during the Switch’s early days, the Joy-Con grip with the controllers slotted in often drew comparisons to a puppy’s face. Hyperkin is taking advantage of the previous buzz with a new accessory.

Amazon is listing the “Pupper” Controller Attachment for Switch Joy-Con. It offers the following:

– Rechargeable internal battery that charges Joy-Con controllers while you play
– Curved grip for comfortable hold, secure and easy to slide in rails for Joy-Cons
– Battery status and player number indicator light
– 3 decorative puppy smile stickers included
– USB Type-C compatible

The “Pupper” Controller Attachment for Switch Joy-Con could be available next week going off of Amazon’s listing. The retailer has it down for December 21, though pre-orders aren’t live as of yet.

    The tilting takes away some of the charm I feel

      If it makes it more comfortable, I really don’t mind.

        Having the joycons tilted like that will probably make the motion controls inaccurate and the sticks inaccurate as well.

          Have you used the joycon straps? The motion controls work perfectly and you can even have it pointing down. The tilting doesn’t affect it at all since only one joycon is detected for motions when you play with both. About the sticks, your hands are going to be placed perfectly so the directions aren’t affected. It’s different from the pro controller and might need some time to get used to, but in the end I feel this is going to be better than the official thing.

    If they wanted to not be a cheap cash in, an LED tongue or light up tongue to indicate battery charge remaining is a must. Sadly, they got stickers.

      Amen brother !

      Probably they didn’t do it since they probably thought that not everyone is into the dog thing and just want the tilted grip.

    LMAO !!! uuh no. Just get a Pro Controller or the Splatoon 2 Deluxe kit…it has awesome Joy-Con Trigger grips that are really cool.

    • amak11

      I know people that prefer the joycons. This is good for those who want something slightly better than the default grip

  • So it’s a rip-off of the tongue stickers which were a rip-off of the fanart…

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      which were a rip-off of real dog

      • which were a rip-off of wolves

        • CaptainPleb

          Which were a rip-off of dinosaurs.

          • no man dinosaurs evolved into birds

          • Agreed, wolves are a ripoff of whatever generic mammal thing crawled out from the meteor’s ruin. However, I think this joke has run its evolutionary course.

  • Mihael Keehl

    dont need it. I simply ordered a sticker like that online

  • Roto Prime

    So BLOODY close to Gamecube lay out ;____; I would have totally bought this!!!

  • Mark

    Oh wow. That is just adorable.

    I’d get it for the recharging and the wider controller, personally.

  • Stuart O’Quin

    Lol my wife was so excited when she saw this!

  • FutureFox

    Couple of things: 1) You guys reported on this a few days ago already. 2) the angle of the joy-cons takes away from the “puppy” look. Looks like its face is melting.

  • i dont like dogs

    You can buy stickers that have the dogs mouth on eBay for a few bucks. And Jesus Christ I hate the name pupper and doggo. Stupid old men on Reddit trying to be cute.
