Neeeeds me a better Switch Controller

Postby Funkmaster V » April 28th, 2020, 9:08 pm

I am a pretty damn good Zangief Street Fighter 2 player, and with this Capcom sale going on, I picked up the 30th Anniversary SF collection for 14 bucks. Hip Hip Hooray.

After starting the damn game, it became apparent that I have to hit all three punch buttons to do his lariat and with the joy cons... and man a consistent Spinning Piledriver is a distant dream. I also feel like Im ripping the controllers apart when I play.

So...... whats the best fighting controller for the Switch? These poor joycons are not cutting the mustard. Also, I play in docked mode 99% of the time.

I got the Pro Controller and I use it almost exclusively.

If you have a favorite controller from another recent system, you could use an adapter:

Mayflash Magic-NS: ... sh+&sr=8-2

8bitdo adapter:ám ... do+&sr=8-3

I have both and they work well (though you might need to update them to the latest firmware using your PC). The Mayflash one works with both wired and bluetooth controllers. The 8bitdo one is bluetooth only.
