Pokkén Tournament Wii U controller can now be used with any Nintendo Switch game

The Nintendo Switch console recently received a new system update, which has added support for the Wii U Pokkén Pro Pad. The controller along with its excellent D-pad, which was designed specifically for Pokkén Tournament, can now be used with any Nintendo Switch game. For those interested, The Pikachu Limited Edition Pokkén Pad is currently only $10.97 at Gamestop.com with $6 shipping. Here are some notes to keep in mind:

  • This is a wired USB controller, so it can only be used while the switch is docked.
  • The pad does not have an analog stick, nor a home button, so it’s not ideal for every game.
  • The only difference between the Pikachu edition and the regular edition is the colors.
  • These controllers also work well on PCs for emulators.

For further improvements included in Nintendo Switch’s version 3.0.0 update, read on below.
