Kirby Switch controller PowerA

PowerA is planning a new Switch controller design for Kirby, and you’ll be able to pick it up very soon. This is different from the other colorful design we posted about last year.

The wireless controller is similar to the company’s other offerings, but this is a pretty unique design. It includes two mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons that you can program at any time, precision tuned analog sticks, a full size d-pad, a LED indicator for player number, button mapping, and low battery warning, plus more. However, it does not support HD Rumble, the IR camera, motion controls, or amiibo NFC.

PowerA isn’t slowing down on releasing new controllers for Switch, and retailer listings have now revealed that a new design is inbound for the Zelda series, with a specific focus on Link.

The “Link Watercolor” controller can be used wirelessly. It features two mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons and up to 30 hours of gameplay on a single charge via “a potent internal lithium-ion rechargeable 900mAh battery.” A 10ft (3m) USB-C charge cable is included, and PowerA says it “backs all products for 2-years to reinforce quality commitment.” Although both docked and undocked play is supported, note that HD Rumble, IR, and amiibo support are note included.

PowerA has revealed that it is now starting to ship a new Kirby-themed enhanced wired controller for Switch based on the series’ 30th anniversary. It should be available starting today in North America and Europe. However, it should be noted retailers like Amazon have it listed for July 15.

The controller “takes influence from the adorable protagonist’s character design, with his signature pink color having a prominent focus.” It contains mappable advanced gaming buttons, along with a lengthy detachable 10ft USB cable.

PowerA is gearing up for The Delicious Last Course DLC in Cuphead with a new Switch controller. While we previously saw a design for Mugman at the end of 2020, this latest one is based on Ms. Chalice.

PowerA notes that the new design “radiates all the animated, eccentric energy of the franchise.” It features bright yellow hues and mint green accents. Also, the front faceplate is polished off with detailed, cartoon artwork from the game starring Ms. Chalice.

metroid dread controller

PowerA has another Switch controller planned for its lineup, this time for Metroid Dread.

The licensed, wired controller lets users program two mappable advanced gaming buttons and plug in a headset into the 3.5mm audio jack for stereo sound. A pair of embedded anti-friction rings are included as well – along with a standard USB-C cable and two-year warranty. However, keep in mind that it does not support HD Rumble, IR functionality, motion controls, or amiibo NFC. It can only be used while the Switch unit is docked.

Here’s a closer look at the Metroid Dread controller from PowerA with a bunch of photos:
