Back in March 2017, the Nintendo switch was released in form of a console that can be carried around anywhere and also can be used both home or away. The console has two Joy-Con controllers and thus, in red and blue color. However, the console can be used differently but can make one large controller when Joy-Con holder is added.

Notwithstanding the fact that most controllers (which includes the Nintendo Switch Pro controller) have a D-pad, but it is totally different in the case of Joy-Con controllers. Hence, it has to do with the fact that the both controllers can be used separately, in order to make the two existing buttons identical for the both controllers.

However, Shenzhen Jieruihong Electronic Co. Ltd., An unknown Chinese manufacturer appears to be putting up an alternative on the market soon. Meanwhile, the company has filed a patent in the Global Design Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) which was held on the 29th of January.

The design patent shown comes with two controllers which have a lot of similarities with the Joy-Con controllers from Nintendo when compared together. Even the colors looks the same. Hence, the only noticeable difference on the controllers is the D-pad at the blue controller.

Additionally, the patented controller turns out to be slightly wider when compared with the original one. Unquestionably, this will be an advantage to the grip.

Last year, the Japanese gaming company “Hori” has bright brought to the market the D-pad Joy-Con controller, this clearly means that it is not the first switch controller with a D-pad. Thus, this is a product is officially authorized by Nintendo and now, it is available in Netherlands.

Furthermore, the Hori D-pad controller can be used in handheld mode and thus, only replaces the left Joy-Con. As it seems, the game controller doesn't have vibration, motion sensors, NFC and IR, which the original Joy-Con controllers have.

Shenzhen Jieruihong Electronics Co., Ltd. has already introduced several Nintendo Switch controllers under the same brand name “Vigrand”. These controllers turns out to be affordable, which are mostly sold through online shopping sites such as AliBaba and AliExpress. However, it's likely that you can be able to buy this Nintendo Switch controller on those sites as well.
