Joy-Cons (like the ones that came with the console itself) are the Switch's answer to the Wii Remote, and they're wand-like handsets that can be used as a pair, separately, or slotted onto the portable screen in handheld mode. For the full suite of multiplayer options, we'd advise picking up an extra pair for 4-player fun on select games. 

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers are more traditional affairs consisting of two thumbsticks, face buttons, a d-pad, shoulder bumpers, and two triggers. This is ideal for games such as Smash Bros, Dark Souls or the Witcher 3 Switch edition.

Only after a pair of Joy-Cons? We’ve got the top deals for you below. We’d definitely advise getting a pack of two rather than singular Joy-Cons; single packs go for around $49.99/£39.99, while a pair usually start at $79.99/£69.99. So, it’s far better value for money all-round to get the double pack.

The Pro controller’s essential if you’ll be spending a lot of time on the Switch. Not only does it help avoid the claw hand you start to get after a long session using the Joy-Cons, it’s better suited to games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or Splatoon 2. The only downside is the fact that they don’t come in many colors. As a side-note, we’d recommend avoiding third-party handsets if you want to use amiibos - they don’t usually have the required NFC capabilities.
