The music in the beginning of the video seems a bit loud
hbarudi (3 days 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! (6 days 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?

"More". #NintendoSwitch plis 😄
BradleyJoe Mocs (28 days 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

I love when 3rd party modifications and accessories aren’t complete crap and actually feel like an official nintendo product
Vinny V (2 months ago)
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 (2 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.

Couldn't you use a 3d printed d pad that just popped over the buttons
Craig Locke (3 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 (3 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 (3 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
BigJJ1994 (3 months ago)
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 (4 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 (4 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 (4 months ago)
You can use this to troll your friend by giving it to them when you play multiplayer games.
orgy57 (4 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

Neon_man909 (5 months ago)
the problem with this and the hack ben heck did is it ruins the multiplayer for that joycon, now for the unlucky player who gets that doesnt have buttons anymore

Wtf, the second nintendo releases an official left joycon with a dpad, im buying the switch, that's how important it is, and we're not gonna get it if nobody demands it

Double X (6 months ago)
Does it prevent pressing opposite directions like a proper dpad? Trying to play Blaster Master on the Joycons I would sometimes try to roll from one direction to the opposite and end up pushing all four buttons, so the game decided I wanted to go up-left, causing me to take damage in a hectic firefight. Nobody ever mentions if this mod does this correctly.
Medachod (4 months ago)
It does.
