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:

Update (9/22): After more than a month of waiting, pre-orders for the Hades Switch controller have opened. You can reserve it on Amazon here.
