Joy-Con
Nintendo Switch has a controller on each side of the console that function together: the Joy-Con.
If you attach the two Joy-Con to the Joy-Con grip, it will work like a traditional controller, and without the grip they work as two individual, fully-functioning controllers.

By handing one of the Joy-Con to a friend, you can play competitive or co-operative multiplayer anywhere.

As well as holding a single Joy-Con vertically or horizontally to play games, you can also play using both Joy-Con at once, holding one in each hand.

Attach the Joy-Con straps included in the package and slip the straps onto your wrists to enjoy the Joy-Con’s motion controls.

If you hold the Joy-Con sideways, you can also access the SL/SR Buttons with ease.

Joy-Con:
evolving the world of play
A sense of touch that goes beyond mere vibrations
Imagine the Joy-Con is a glass containing ice cubes. With HD rumble, when you move and tilt the Joy-Con you can feel the ice cubes clanking around.

There’s one, there’s another…HD rumble feels so realistic that you can even tell how many cubes there are, almost as if you’re actually holding a glass in your hand.

The HD rumble function included in the Joy-Con creates an immersive gameplay experience that isn’t possible with images and sounds alone.
Sense shape, movement and distance
illustThe IR Motion Camera in Joy-Con (R) can detect the shape, movement and distance of objects captured by the camera.

For example, it can recognise the shape of players’ hands, such as when you make a rock, paper or scissors. With this feature, there are more gameplay possibilities than ever!
