+2 Deal Score

Was looking around at Walmart today and found the new Mario/Zelda themed Switch controllers for $25. MSRP on these is $30. I'll post a receipt if necessary once I get home from work.

Posting the Amazon link for comparison:
https://www.amazon.com/Wired-Cont...K669Y&th=1


These controllers are WIRED ONLY but are officially licensed by Nintendo.

I'm guessing "Officially Licensed" = not made by

Yeah I saw them the other day. I think they were made by Hori.

Edit: Actually I think they're made by PowerA. Attached a picture.

10 Foot removable USB cable
No rumble and no gyros for motion controls

FYI Some parts of Zelda would not be playable with this and I'm hearing Mario makes use of motion controls too (although not sure if they are required)

Op link for a Walmart item goes to Amazon. Confusing. The closest thing at Walmart seems to be a HORI product, showing as $26.88 at my store.

I say this every time, but Power A controllers are great until they stop working after a few months.

Don't know what part of "posting the amazon link for reference" was confusing.

Attempting to add receipt to the OP. $24.88 pre-tax.

Yeah Power A made. I got both on Meracari for 45 together. They are about what you expect from a half priced pro controller. Nice Design is main reason to purchase if you like the designs enough
