Nintendo Switch is almost the perfect console – if not for my gorilla hands that make the Joy-con feel puny. That said, if you have gorilla hands like me, or just want to step up your game, then perhaps NYXI Transparent Joy-pad for Nintendo Switch may be able to help.
Right off the bat, the NYXI Transparent Joy-pad is larger which already ticks the check box of gorilla gamers. No wait, I mean gamers with gorilla-sized hands. But clearly (pun intended!), it is not just about size.
It is super geeky too, thanks to the transparent treatment that lets you ogle at the innards. Of course, there are opaque versions but seriously, nothing screams geeky and stylish like transparent gadgets, innit? Well, that and the GameCube Joy-Cons, of course.
NYXI Transparent Joy-pad further touts an adjustable vibration rumble function with four levels of vibration/rumble strength, plus one feature that is sorely missed from the original Joy-con: RGB lighting.
The NYXI Transparent Joy-pad boasts no less than 8 colors of LED with 3 modes of lighting effects. With the lights, the Nintendo Switch/Switch OLED can finally claim the title of a modern-day gaming rig. Hey, don’t look at me. I did not set the rule. Razer did.
NYXI Transparent Joy-pad also has a built-in 6-axis gyro somatosensory tracking flexible movement and direction change, speed, and precision that result in highly accurate positioning and no input lag time.
Other notables include a one-key wake-up function, screenshot button, large buttons and joysticks, and a 500 mAh battery good for up to 8 hours of playtime, or up to 20 hours of standby time.
The NYXI Transparent Joy-pad for Nintendo Switch sells for US$69.99. But last checked, NYXI is taking 20 dollars off the device, so it can be yours for US$49.99. It is not clear how long this discount will last.
