    Want to not only play Animal Crossing, but play it in the most fashionable way? That's what accessory manufacturer PowerA is hoping for, with the announcement of their new line of Nintendo Switch wireless controllers. Meant to act as a third-party version of the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, PowerA's latest take is decked out in two different styles. One is a light green, with brown face buttons, and has a K.K. Slider on the front, while the other variation sports the two Nookling brothers, and a brighter green color. Different from the standard Pro Controller, these also feature two remappable buttons on the back of the gamepad. Both will retail for $49.99, and will launch on March 10th, slightly ahead of the scheduled release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is set for March 20th.

    More and more controllers are adapting the back buttons. Also, I wish Power A would've kept on making smaller-sized controllers too since that was their niche before.

    I wonder if they'll be making models with aligned analog sticks, like the Wii U Pro and Wii Classic controllers had...that's the reason why I don't like the normal Switch Pro (and derivatives) or JoyCons; they don't feel as comfortable in my hands.

    Well, these are just goddamn adorable. I normally like to keep my controllers as plain as possible, but man, these are really calling to me.
