Kevin Kenson thanks for a great video
You don't need a d-pad the buttons are marked with arrows

is there a place where I can send my joycons and have some one mod them for me for money? I dont think i can do this myself

A, B, X, Y, or A.

Is that 3ds dpad
This looks awesome but honestly I don’t really see the problem with the four direction buttons I mean PlayStation uses four separate buttons and no one says anything
The Gamer Jalen (11 days ago)
I would rather spend 140$ on the joycon d-pads online than tear apart the joycon
MsmX Music (11 days ago)
Why are people suddenly caring about the D-Pad not being on the joy-con, when before, everyone didn’t care about the D-pad in general?

I love my switch but I hate switching (ahem) between my Switch pro controller and my Xbox one controller, I hate that the buttons are in different positions so it takes me a while to adjust between the two. I'd like a mod that swaps the buttons so that the pro controllers buttons are in the same place as the Xbox one controllers buttons.

i just want the right joy con to have the buttons on the bottom not the top

How many Switch owners play with the Joy-Cons sideways like that to play any games that don't require it? Because i've not once ever thought about playing like that.
JustSomeRandomSheep (1 month ago)
Thay have the buttons so when you use a individual Joycon the button D-Pad acts as the A, B, X and Y buttons

I would have really liked to see the design of how the d pad is designed. I want to have a central pivot if I was going to buy a dpad for it

hbarudi (1 month ago)
saw the clear video, thanks for the dpad and the dpad might look better on the totally clear joycons if you can do that.

Don't do it unless you can afford another Joy-Con. Trust me on this.

Can u do one where on the right joycon, you switch the joystick and a,b,x,y
NintenSnow Plays! (2 months ago)
The joy con d-pad is fine in my opinion. And using the analog stick for 2d games is also fine on the switch because the actual stick doesn't have a lot of reach.

With how great these look, I'm wondering why the Amazon reviews are only 3.5 stars? Is it because it's hard to install?

BradleyJoe Mocs (2 months ago)
My guess on why no D pad on swicth. Is because Nintendo wanted to make both joycons equal (1 joy stick, 4 buttons, +/- button, home and camera button, shoulder buttons, the 2 smaller buttons on the side of joycons, and sync button) so when it came down to 2 player game play both were equal.

I wish they came in standard controller colours. I never cared for transparent housing and I have minor ocd

Nintendo should make a Switch XL with Jumbo Joycons. Makes sense since Nintendo has made XL sized platforms for the DSi and 3DS.

They should make the white dashes on the directions correspond colour-wise to the button they're replacing.

NewYork'sFinest (4 months ago)
I was looking into getting something JUST like this. In white tho but what kind of screwdriver would be needed exactly & from 1-10 is it worth this? I'd mainly be playing portable for the most part & not via the TV (i will sometimes but not always) Great video btw.

Why don't they make a dpad that has a b x and y on it
Michael Davis (5 months ago)
Couldn't you use a 3d printed d pad that just popped over the buttons
Craig Locke (5 months ago)
is there a bump on the bottom to prevent you from pressing left and right at the same time and if so is it pressing on the circuit board or some plastic somewhere
TestSubject9B (5 months ago)
I'm buying a switch, and I'm gonna buy a second pair. Of. Joycons just to have this shell. I love the colour purple
littlelamp100 (5 months ago)
just did this to mine with the ice blue. looks fantastic, and i totally love the dpad, also i think it looks good with the colored buttons imo the dpad is okay when using the joycon on its own, like he said also fyi the dpad version comes with replacement SL/SR buttons that match the shell not too difficult to do, except for the ZL/ZR buttons and the ribbon cables, just make sure you have some tweezers and a plastic pry tool to help, also ofc the right screwdrivers

I'm trying to find someone who can do it and pay them 😎

If you could use a 3DS D-pad, could you use a circle pad instead of the sticks?
Medachod (5 months ago)
These things always feel like a mess. Either the buttons are off, either set of shoulder buttons feel strange or the rumble is messed up. Whoever cuts the plastic on these is doing so below average at best, but you sure can ignore all those flaws when your 2D games feel significantly better with that d-pad, the only part of these controllers that feels premium. Once Nintendo has a set of d-pad Joy-Cons, though, you better believe everyone will sell these. I just don't see people keeping them since the plastic being unevenly cut most of the time results in strange functionality.

i hate the pro controller dpad... it doesnt use 4 different switches so i got tons of misclicks where i pressed right and it actually pressed up
Breeman AMV (6 months ago)
I switched one of my left joycons (grey) to one of these d-pad joycons (went with white) just a couple weeks ago and I love it! It works and feels like a great d-pad and can't wait to try more 2D platformers with it (like Super Meat Boy). I have plenty of extra controllers for the living room so I don't mind giving up one joy-con to have a d-pad while playing portable (which is when I use the switch most of the time anyways).
Deathcoln Gaming (6 months ago)
You can use this to troll your friend by giving it to them when you play multiplayer games.
orgy57 (6 months ago)
but what would happen if you wanted to press buttons on opposite sides of the d-pad? wouldn't it not have the mobility for that
