Should I upgrade to original controllers?

Posted by Ben on Jun. 30th, 2021

We get asked many times "What's the difference between replica controllers and originals?"

Our replica controllers look nearly identical to the originals but they're made by a 3rd party company and not by Nintendo. They work fine if you're looking to just casually play some games but the originals are a bit better. They're a bit more accurate, more precise, the joystick usually works better and they're more durable and have a more quality feel when they're in your hand. 

I generally recommend that if you're going to be playing quite a bit, are a more serious player, or especially if you grew up remembering how the originals performed you will be happier if you upgrade to original controllers.
