HORI has revealed a new attachment for its Switch Split Pad Pro accessory that will make it possible to use the device as a wired controller for TV mode.

Up until now, the Split Pad Pro has only been compatible in handheld mode. A few different designs have been released, including Daemon X Machina, Pac-Man, Pokemon, and Monster Hunter. We’ll also be seeing a new Mega Man version very soon. But now with the new attachment, the Split Pad Pro essentially becomes a wired controller.


HORI is planning a new Switch Split Pad Pro for Mega Man, a listing on Amazon reveals.

The controller, which is officially licensed by Nintendo and Capcom, has been completely decked out with the classic character showing up on both sides. The entire thing is in blue as well, which acts as another nod to the Capcom icon.

Update (4/10): Play-Asia is taking pre-orders for the Ring Fit Adventure mat here.

Original (4/7): HORI has made a bunch of Switch accessories over the past few years, most of which are controllers. But now the company has unveiled the first ever accessory for Ring Fit Adventure.

HORI is planning to release an officially-licensed mat for the Switch title which can be used in either a folded form or fully spread depending on the exercise the player is performing. Since it’s absorbing some of the impact of you hitting the floor, it’s easier on your joints. It measures 1,800 mm x 610 mm with a thickness of 4 mm.

The Ring Fit Adventure mat is slated for June in Japan with a price point of 6,300 yen. There’s no word on a western release just yet, though importing is always an option.


A couple of weeks ago, HORI announced a new Split Pad Pro controller for Switch based on Monster Hunter Rise. There was only news about a Japanese release at the time, but it’s now confirmed for the west as well.
