Third Party hardware developers PDP have had a great track record when it comes to providing cool looking Videogame controllers. They have been supporting Nintendo for quite a while and the Nintendo Switch is no exception. With more variants including both wired and wireless options and with plenty of designs to choose from including but not limited to; Mario, Zelda and Pokémon. There is literally a PDP Switch controller to match almost everyone’s tastes.
Well, PDP are not done yet and have probably excelled themselves this time as they are releasing a new controller with integrated In-Game Chat and Game Audio. This new controller is the PDP Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller. This new controller is built for games like Fortnite on Nintendo Switch but I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo decided to integrate the controller to work with games like Splatoon 2.
