Best Nintendo Switch Grips In 2022

Posted on

Though the Nintendo Switch is a great handheld console, it’s not the best when it comes to ergonomics. With its small buttons and lack of a rubber grip (or any grip, really) on the Joy-Cons, the Switch in handheld mode can be somewhat uncomfortable, especially during longer sessions with input-heavy Switch games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Even the handheld-only Switch Lite, with its small form factor, suffers from the same issue. That’s why a grip is arguably the number one Switch accessory that handheld-focused players should pick up. From the Satisfye Switch grip case (which your Switch just slides into to give you a better grip) to the pricier Hori Split Pad Pro (which actually replaces your Switch Joy-Cons with wider controllers), there’s now a variety of Nintendo Switch grip options out there that make the handheld experience far better than it is naturally, and we’ve tested many of the main options on the market. We’ve rounded up the best Switch grips, most of which are available for budget-friendly prices.

Since there are three different Switch models now–standard, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED–you have to make sure you buy a grip that’s compatible with your device. Outside of the Hori Split Pad Pro, most standard Switch grips do not work with the Switch OLED due to the slight size difference. At this time, there aren’t many Switch OLED grips, though Satisfye recently released an updated ZenGrip Pro designed for Switch OLED that we highly recommend.
