#BlogapieGamer | Pokken Tournament Pro Pads Are Cool!

Hello, everyone. Walapie Gamer (the Nintendo Archiver) here with another wonderful #BlogapieGamer post!

If you haven’t heard by now, the Nintendo Switch was updated to version 3.0. Check out the list of features at the link. The most important one to me is the ability to use the HORI branded Pokken Tournament Pro Pad.

Yes. Those controllers that used to work exclusively for Pokken Tournament for Wii U, and the upcoming Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch, now work with any game on the Nintendo Switch (some better than others; more on that in a second).

The only thing a Pokken Pro Pad needs is an available USB slot and WHAM! Games just work.

Of course, the Pokken Pro Pad does not have analog sticks and two of the shoulder buttons have been relocated to the center of the controller, but for games that require more of a Super Nintendo controller setup–four face buttons and two shoulder buttons–this controller works wonders.

Disgaea 5 Complete and King of Fighters ’98 work perfectly. The Directional Pad is big and solid and helps with movements in both games and awesome diagonals in the latter (which is important for a fighting game).

Overall, the Pokken Pro Pad is simply a sturdy controller with great build quality, nice big buttons, and a lengthy cord. It is a great retro focused controller.

I bought the standard version during Black Friday last year but went ahead and purchased the Pikachu edition the moment I read the 3.0 Switch update allowed the controller to be used.

I was really itching to get a new controller so I could play Puyo Puyo Tetris and the NEO GEO retro/fighting game catalog with more finesse and the Pokken Pro Pad helped me do so. I give my Bucket List approval for this nifty device.

Thanks for reading and see you next time, gamers!
