Topic: Do pro controller works with all games?

Posts 1 to 8 of 8



I just bought a pro controller.

I tried it with two games:

Zelda breath of the wild
Bayonetta 1

I had already started Bayonetta playing in handheld mode.
Now, when I have the switch in docked mode and I'm using the pro controller, when I start Bayonetta the controller stops working (the led light disappears too).

If I go into options, I can only choose the touch or the joycons (the joycons are showed as attached to the console but I can also play using them detached)

Is it a problem of the controller, of this specific game or there are several games which can't be played with the pro controller?



There are several games that can’t be played with a pro controller. Bayonetta should work, though :/

@alsora The only ones I know of that don't support the Pro Controller are Mario Party, Pokemon Let's Go and Just Dance. There could be others, but I'm honestly not sure.

I played Bayonetta with pro controller, so it should work with said title. Have you updated your controller?

Also you can look at the back of the game case and it also list the controllers as well. Or just check the Nintendo site I think they would list which controllers the game uses.



@alsora The vast majority of titles support the Pro controller. Only a handful of them don't. You can check on the back of the box for retail releases, or in the eshop. Both show controller compatibility.

The eShop pages for the games always tell you what controllers are supported.

Keep it PG-13-ish.
