The Joy-Cons are fantastic controllers by Nintendo but a number of people have been miffed that the company didn’t use a standard D-Pad on them. Thankfully, peripheral manufacturer Hori has solved this issue by producing a Joy-Con with a standard D-Pad. It’s a left Joy-Con and will be available July 2018 priced at ¥2,678. However, there are tradeoffs as the Joy-Con only works in portable play and doesn’t feature standard gyro controls and HD Rumble, etc.
