Officially licensed by Nintendo, the FUSION Pro Wireless controller brings a sort Xbox Elite-like approach to the party with customizable faceplates and thumbsticks, as well as what PowerA calls a detachable and programmable Pro Pack with removable paddle controls — a sort of mini included add-on that affixes to the back of the controller to carry up to four programmable paddle controls.
The Bluetooth-enabled controller supports both wireless use via the 900mAh internal battery or wired connections with the included and detachable 9.8-foot braided USB-C cable.
Along with swappable thumb sticks (featuring convex and concave caps) making use of “embedded anti-friction rings,” the FUSION Pro Wireless controller for Nintendo Switch also includes a pair of magnetic faceplates (one black and one white) to customize the look of your gamepad.
Housed within the injected rubber grips you’ll find a 3.5mm audio jack, motion sensor control, and all of the usual face buttons, a D-pad, shoulder triggers, and system controls.

The new PowerA FUSION Pro Wireless controller for Nintendo Switch is now up for pre-order at $99.99.
Well, the price isn’t going to go over very well with most folks, but this is one of those Elite-style controllers for Switch.

It certainly isn’t for everyone, but hardcore Switch gamers might really appreciate the customization options here.
