Switch Split Pad Compact Sonic

HORI is adding two more designs to its lineup of Switch Split Pad Compacts, with Sonic the Hedgehog and Pac-Man now getting the spotlight.

As a reminder, the Split Pad Compact is an updated version of the Split Pad Pro with a focus on handheld player. It features full-size analog sticks and a d-pad plus turbo functions and assignable rear buttons. However, it does not support motion controls, HD Rumble, NFC, and the IR camera.

The Switch Split Pad Compact started to release last year. Some of the initial designs included ones for Pokemon, but it now looks like HORI is expanding and will be bringing third-parties into the mix.

Switch Split Pad Compact Pac-Man

You can pre-order the Pac-Man version on Amazon here. Sonic isn’t up yet, but will be soon here. Both have tentative release dates of October 31, 2023 – though that’s not been officially confirmed by HORI thus far.
