The Xbox Adaptive Controller works on the Nintendo Switch

In an interesting turn of events, Microsoft’s much praised Xbox Adaptive Controller can work on the Nintendo Switch.

With Nintendo recently coming under criticism due to the lack of adaptive of option in their games like the recently released Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee games which make the game inaccessible to many due to their non-optional motion controls, this news is timed just perfectly.

The process isn’t plug and play as you’ll need to do and get a few things beforehand. First you need to get your hand on a Magic-NS Adapter which allows you to connect third-party controllers to your Switch. Then set your Switch to accept Wired Pro Controller Input and finally plug-in everything.
