There are various options for choosing the best Switch controller to fit your Zelda needs. Many of these options include PowerA controllers as they are Nintendo licensed with long battery life for wireless controllers and a long cord if they're wired. Luckily they have created many designs, so you have options!

Our favorite is the PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controller - Midnight Ride. It has a beautiful design with unique color, and not being tied down with a wire makes it easier to play, however, wherever. But the wired options like the PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller – Retro Zelda are a great option to save money as long as the cord doesn't bother you. Which option is your favorite?
