Original (8/16): We’ve seen PowerA make a variety of controllers for Switch over the years, many of which have been themed after Nintendo-published games. Now, however, the company has unveiled another design featuring a third-party title – that being Hades.
Here’s everything you need to know about the controller:

So great, you may never want to put it down. Includes a 10ft (3m) USB-C charge cable, plus PowerA backs all products for 2-years to reinforce quality commitment. Controller can be used when Nintendo Switch is docked or undocked. Does not support HD rumble, IR, or amiibo NFC. Multiple variables affect battery life estimate.
