If you've been left frustrated by Nintendo's lack of options for voice chat support with the Switch, this new controller may well be worth a good look.

First revealed at the beginning of April, the new Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller from accessory maker PDP features an audio jack for game audio and integrated in-game chat - which is sorely lacking on Nintendo's official controllers - and onboard audio controls which let you adjust your sound on the fly. You can use it with headphones for all games on Switch, but the voice chat feature is naturally restricted to those games which actually support it, such as Fortnite.

It has been licensed by Nintendo and comes in Black Camo, Blue Camo, Purple Camo and Red Camo colourings for a recommended price of $24.99, and it also features two additional programmable buttons on the back and interchangeable faceplates. You can pre-order your own right now from either pdp.com or Amazon - it releases on 22nd July.


We've always thought that the lack of an audio jack on the Switch Pro Controller was a strange omission, especially considering rival platform controllers have them built in as standard, so this new release could be just what the doctor ordered.
