Pre-orders open for Nintendo's Switch Pro Controller at Best Buy and GameStop in the US

There are only two weeks left until the release of Nintendo's new Switch console and while the firm has yet to divulge any more details about the console or its revamped online service - more and more accessories are becoming available through retailers. Although the Switch will come with Joy-Con controllers and a Joy-Con grip, there is also the option of a more 'traditional' setup with the Switch Pro Controller.

While the Pro Controller has been in the public eye since the launch event, and folks have had the opportunity to play with it on the Switch Tour, the accessory wasn't widely available for pre-order. That has now changed as it is now available for pre-order in the US from Best Buy and GameStop.

The Switch Pro Controller will be available on the same day as the console is released, and will cost $69.99. While it is a fairly hefty price to pay, those that would like to game with a more traditional controller might want to opt for this setup.

Naturally, you can also wait to see how it feels to use the bundled Joy-Con controllers and make a decision from there. The Switch will arrive on retail shelves on March 3 for $299.99.
