    Confirmed: Switch Pro Controller Works Natively With PC

    Footage of it in use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3ofL4lE_ZA

    Apparently it charges when using Bluetooth connection too.

    Here's an FAQ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtCTy0N1BV8

    Too bad it doesn't work natively with analog triggers too..

    Interesting. You don't need 3rd party drivers or anything?

    My Wii Remote works on PC, so not really that surprising that this one will as well :P

    Yeah, but you have to go to a lot of trouble to get it to work. If this works OOTB with no 3rd party software, that's awesome. I'm not sure I believe it has built in X-Input support or not, though.

    Just watched the FAQ video. So it's using DirectInput, rather than XInput. It's cool that it pairs easily through Bluetooth, but if you want to run modern games that are made for XInput, you have to install a DirectInput to XInput driver.

    They're normally D-input (Nintys hardware), but an easy wrapper isn't had to get working (it wasn't on the Wii U pro)

    Damn you for ninjaing my reply..
    A lot of pc games support D-input controllers, but yes for them that don't most sticks won't be analog without a wrapper (if registred at all)

    That is true, but I can't recall it being that troublesome to get the Wii Remotes working for Skyward Sword HD.
    I read that it was more of an issue if you tried to sync Wii Remotes that had inbuilt motion plus.

    I used the software to hook up my Pro Controller via Bluetooth. It was somewhat of a pain to get set up. My main issue was that if I turned the Pro Controller off, it wouldn't just reconnect if I turned it back on. I actually had to get into the software and set it up again. It's just not worth that kind of hassle.

    I just bought a cheap mayfair adapter, allows you to connect 1 pro as xinput or 4 as dinput.. no hassle at all and it remembers your pairing
