Add a D-Pad to your Nintendo Switch with Hori's discounted Mario, Zelda and Pokémon controllers

If you see the Nintendo Switch's lack of a D-Pad as one of its major weak points, consider picking up Hori's D-Pad Controller. Though they regularly sells for $25, today you can pick up the Mario, Zelda or Pokémon editions for $19.99 at Amazon, dropping them down to their lowest ever prices.

Similar in design to the Joy-Con controllers, these products come with just one controller for the left-hand side of your console which features an authentic D-Pad that can help you master D-Pad intensive titles like Dead Cells. These controllers are officially licensed by Nintendo, though you make a few compromises by using one instead of the Joy-Con, such as the inability to play wirelessly with it — it can only be used in handheld mode. There's also no amiibo functionality nor rumble or motion controls.

Stores are currently offering a Nintendo Switch bundle with $35 credit towards digital games for its regular price of $299 right now! You can also score several essential Nintendo Switch games for $45 each currently, such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
