It's been quite a while since you've done a joy con video.

couldn't Nintendo have put abxy symbols on a dpad and fix both problems?

While this mod has a better dpad than the regular joycon; it's still not as good as it could be. It lacks a proper pivot center and Street Fighter motion moves; do not come out as good as other controllers with dpad or even the analog stick of the joycon. Its good for plat formers that do not require many diagonal movements.

I’m so happy I found this video. I bought a pair of these, and have been stressing about how well the D-Pad would work (cuz I purchased without researching too much). Thanks for showing it off. 🙏🏼

Why do you need this everyone complains about the lack of a dpad is not an issue unless it is retro style games which 8bitdo makes controllers for so this is pointless except for portable mode that i have no argument for and if you have the money to pull apart your 70 dollar controllers without a looming fear of breaking them then thats you blablabla I lost this argument when i only have Mario kart mario odyssey and botw
Does it work on Fortnite?

A, B, X, Y, or A.
AdamGameToons (2 months ago)
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 (2 months ago)
I would rather spend 140$ on the joycon d-pads online than tear apart the joycon
MsmX Music (2 months 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?

Martyn James (3 months ago)
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 (3 months 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

saw the clear video, thanks for the dpad and the dpad might look better on the totally clear joycons if you can do that.

Can u do one where on the right joycon, you switch the joystick and a,b,x,y
NintenSnow Plays! (4 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 (5 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.

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 (6 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 (7 months ago)
Couldn't you use a 3d printed d pad that just popped over the buttons
Craig Locke (7 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 (7 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 (7 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

If you could use a 3DS D-pad, could you use a circle pad instead of the sticks?
Medachod (8 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 (8 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).
orgy57 (8 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
