Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! is a lovely game, and was a deserved launch success on the Switch eShop. Developed by the small UK studio SFB Games and published by Nintendo, it's set to have a second life as a retail release with the upcoming Plus edition, with that version's extra levels and modes also being sold as DLC for those that have the original download.

One slightly odd oversight in the original, the sort of missing feature common in games that arrive on a new console's launch day, was support for the Joy-Con Grip and Pro Controller. It's a game that needs to be enjoyed in co-op and taps into the idea of taking a Joy-Con each, but those with extra controllers haven't had the luxury of using larger pads for a more comfortable experience.

Well, that oversight will be fixed soon - Nintendo’s Assistant Manager of Product Development Todd Buechele said as much to IGN:

We actually have always wanted to support them, even from the beginning. It was just something that we ended up having to shelve at the time, and that was actually one of the key targets when we looked at Snipperclips Plus.

It will actually be a default in Snipperclips Plus, and then we are releasing a patch for Snipperclips next week that will bring Pro Controller and Grip support to all players who have already downloaded the game.“It’s a free update, so that capability will be there very soon.

Snipperclips Plus is due out on 10th November, so it won't be long before the new content is available; we'll be sure to check it out and let you know what we think.
