Reading now: 794

Steam is continuing to add support for more controller hardware. Those of you who love the quirky and revolutionary style of Nintendo’s controllers will be happy to note that the latest version of Steam’s beta client now supports Joy-Cons for the Nintendo Switch. "Added support for Nintendo Joy-Con controllers, both individually as a mini-gamepad and combined into pairs," notes Steam’s blog update yesterday.

Valve also "improved support" for several Nintendo Online classic controllers that were added last month, which includes the Nintendo 64, NES, SNES, Sega Mega Drive, and Genesis controllers.

They could also one day pair with the Steam Deck, which would make Valve’s handheld even more of a Switch competitor. The only downside to the Joy-Con is its ongoing issues with stick drift.
