Give your Nintendo Switch the classic feel with the new D-Pad Controller (L) by HORI. Made for the gamer on the go, the D-Pad Controller (L) is great for those D-Pad intensive titles. Play them all on the go from platformers, puzzle, action or fighting games. Exlusively for paly in portable mode. Featuring artwork from Super Mario. Officially licensed by Nintendo.
This is a well constructed replacement Joy-Con. The D-pad is the classic nintendo style, and rocks over the nub in the middle. However, I wish that they had swapped the analog stick and D-pad location, because it's uncomfortable to have your thumb in the D-pad location for too long, based on how you hold the Switch unit. Since the primary use of this controller is to have a traditional D-pad, it would have made sense to swap them. Otherwise, it is great for the price and seems to be high quality with good clicky buttons.
Pay for what you get, and it's not bad if you are looking for a usable D-pad for when you play in handheld mode.

Relatively cheap joy-con that comes with a D-pad which really helps when playing 2D side-scrollers and fighting games while in handheld mode. Although the feeling of the D-pad isn't the greatest to me, it gets the job done. Be warned that this joy-con does not come with its own battery, meaning in order to use it you must have it attached to the system. Because of that, it is only usable in hand-held mode and is not able to be used separately or when attached to the comfort grip.
Good d-pad controller that slides into the left side of the switch. It is not wireless, doesn't have rumble, an internal battery, or motion controls. But if you want to play 2d retro style games it has all you need.
