Target YMMV: Hori Nintendo Switch Left D-Pad Controller (Handheld only) $9.98

$9.98

Some Targets have this replacement left Joycon with a D-pad on clearance discounted from $19.99. $9.98 seems to be the lowest, while $13.98 is more common. There's also a 10% off cartwheel coupon in the Target app.

Note that this is for handheld mode attached to the Switch only. It will not operate wirelessly. The minus and screenshot buttons are also soft rubber instead of hard plastic and there is no rumble.

Breath of the Wild version (Most likely to have discount):

This is strictly for handheld play. So the right should always be connected to complete the controls. It's mainly used for platform games.

You don't necessarily need rumble for platform games.

The point of this product is that you gives you a D-Pad which many people prefer for certain types of games like 2D platformers for example. Unless one is left-handed and used to playing with a D-Pad on the right (not sure how that would even be possible) then there would be no point to one on that side. It's too bad this thing only works in handheld mode though.

It is only compatible with Switch fw 6.0 or higher. I tested with Switch fw 3.0 and the Switch did not recognize it. Hope this helps.

True, but the lack of rumble could be a dealbreaker if someone is looking for a replacement joycon and not just a D-pad to use for platformers. That's the issue I ran into a few months back. I'd been having a lot of issues with my left analog stick always pushing up, but hadn't wanted to drop $40ish for a new one. When I came across these at a Target (and on sale for $15) I got pretty excited until I checked their specs online. I ended up not getting one because of the lack of rumble.

When did you buy it? I think that is a semi-common issue with drift on the left joy-con, even when calibrated correctly. Nintendo may repair it for free depending on how long it has been.
