A third-party Nintendo Switch controller has appeared on AliExpress that looks rather familiar. Shenzhen Vigrand Electronic Co. has released a Nintendo Switch controller that is nearly identical to the Ouya controller, minus the Ouya’s touchpad. (Thanks, NintendoLife!)


This Nintendo Switch wireless controller uses Bluetooth V3.0 to connect to the Nintendo Switch. It does not have a NFC reader, but it does have dual motor rumble and gyro-axis functionality. It has a 380mAh lithium battery that can last for about five hours when fully charged. It costs $24.99. Aside from the +, –, home, and capture buttons and colored panels, it is nearly identical to the Ouya’s original controller.


This is Shenzhen Vigrand Electronic Co.’s first Nintendo Switch controller. Previously, it has released controllers for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
