Original (9/12): HORI will release the Switch Split Pad Compact in the west, retailer listings confirm.

The peripheral was recently announced for Japan (known there as the Split Pad Fit) and various designs will be appearing in the country starting this month. It’s an updated version of the Split Pad Pro and is intended to “provide a full-size controller experience in handheld mode.” Full-size analog sticks and d-pad are included, along with turbo functions and assignable rear buttons. Motion controls, HD Rumble, NFC, and the IR camera are not supported.

Thus far only the light gray x yellow and apricot red designs have been confirmed for the west. Japan will be getting a couple of extra colors plus two special Pokemon designs. We have more information, including news about import pre-orders here.
