After hearing much news about issues plaguing the joycons, I thought it'll be handy to get a more value-based controller to handle all the bashing, brawling and super-smashing. This serves that purpose well. The only disadvantage is I'm unsure if it supports vibration which some games rely on. But for this price, I guess that's an acceptable compromise. It is AA powered so I can just use my bank of rechargeables which works well for my needs.
