DESIGN & SPECS
The PowerA FUSION Wired FightPad for Nintendo Switch features a simple yet stylish design. At the front of the controller you’ll find its buttons layout that provides a range of options and versatility to control your character during your gaming sessions.
At the top middle of the layout you’ll find four different Switch System Buttons (+, -, Home, Capture). At the Center (Right) and Top Left you’ll find two Precision-Tuned Analog Sticks. Located at the Center (Left) you’ll find an 8-way plus-shaped color D-pad (metallic D-pad in some color models). At the Top Right you can find a Nintendo ABXY button layout (larger than Joy-Con). And lastly, at the back of the controller you’ll find the Left/Right Shoulder Buttons and Triggers (L/R/ZL/ZR).
The controller comes equipped with 4 LED Indicators that inform the users about: Controller Power, Button Mapping, Player Number and Low Battery Warning. The 4 LED Indicators are centered at the lower part of the controller’s body.
It’s important to note that the controller doesn’t support Rumble (three strengths vibrations) or HD Rumble (more precise and varied vibrations), as well as IR or Amiibo NFC.
The controller offers reliable wireless connectivity and connects to your Nintendo Switch via Bluetooth 5.0. This provides a virtual lag-free experience without using any pesky adapters or USB dongles.
