When it comes to gaming controllers for the PC, there are quite a few options to choose from, such as those released by Logitech, Razer, and even Microsoft’s Xbox controllers which can be used with the PC for gaming. Now it seems that you will be able to add Nintendo to that list as it has been discovered that the Switch’s Pro controller works natively with the PC.

In a post on Reddit and subsequently a video uploaded onto YouTube, it seems that gamers have confirmed that the Pro controller will work natively with the PC as a gaming controller and that you won’t have to fiddle around with software or tools to get it to work properly. We’re not sure if this was an intentional design by Nintendo, but either way if you are planning to get a Switch, know that the Pro controller can also be used with the PC so you can save yourself money on purchasing extra peripherals.

For those unfamiliar, the Nintendo Switch’s Pro controller is basically your standard gamepad design. This is versus the Joy-Con controllers attached to either side of the Switch. The Pro controller might be more preferable for some gamers as its layout is more familiar, and the fact that it is bigger which also means that it is easier to hold. However its size means that bringing it around with you might not necessarily be ideal.
