Gaming peripheral maker GameSir has today launched its latest controller for Switch, offering up a brand new pad for those looking for something on the smaller end of the scale.
The T4 Mini has been designed for players who find traditional modern controllers like the Switch's official Pro Controller a little too bulky for comfortable play. Featuring gyro controls, a two-setting turbo function, and all the buttons found on Nintendo's own controllers, the T4 Mini measures 14.3cm by 8.3cm and weighs 156g.
The main bulk of the pad actually appears to be a very similar size to the Pro Controller – the real difference comes down to the T4 Mini's handles, which are notably smaller than those on Nintendo's controller and will therefore allow smaller hands to access each and every button without stretching.
It also boasts four different lighting modes and can be hooked up to your PC, Android or iOS device if you game across multiple platforms. You can get a decent look at T4 Mini in the video below.
Interested? It's available to buy as we speak from GameSir's website for $35.99.
Apart from the lack of analogue triggers, I think the Switch Pro Controller is one of the best feeling controllers ever made, and a perfect size for me. But this seems like a really good third-party option for those with smaller hands!
Size wise the pro controller is perfect for me. My only problem with it is the dpad that sucks (had to go for handheld or "dog" to play Castlevania collection)
This would be great for kids, but the Joy-Cons are already bad standard controllers. They aren't comfortable to play with outside of anything motion based. The Pro controller is an amazing controller and is up there with the Xbox in terms of ergonomics.
As with all third party Switch Pro controller knockoffs - no HD rumble, no purchase.
This is great! I have small hands, so I prefer using the Joy-Cons, plus its relaxing to be able to have my hands apart. But this is a nice option if I should ever need a classic controller. The Switch Pro controller is slightly to big for me, but not as bad as the Xbox One controllers.
@marnelljm Oh, I missed that. That's too bad. I agree with you, no HD rumble is a deal breaker.
Im just too addicted to the ps5 dualsense that using other controlsers feels awkward now
“Wish your pro controller was smaller”? No. I wish someone made pro-joy-con already! With better wireless range and better thumbstick (like on the pro controller), and still include HD rumble and amiibo. Pretty please. I’d buy a whole bunch of those!
NO! I am an adult with large hands and love the pro controller as it is
I have the T4 pro and it's already kinda small. Couldn't imagine it being even smaller. Great controller though, the programmable buttons underneath are game changers, can't go back to using the face buttons for things like jumping in Fortnite when there's buttons right where my fingers rest on the underside.
I wished the joy cons were bigger honestly. I get cramps if I play handheld.
Is that a Skee-Lo reference in the subheading?
More controllers of different sizes the merrier!
Anything but a Nintendo controller kind of sucks. They're all missing something, this doesn't have HD rumble or NFC compatibility, and the video showed motion control but they didn't show if it had gyro sensors + accelerometers, so I have my doubts. It would have made more sense testing all the capabilities in something like Game Builder Garage.
It's great how it is already. It feels good. However if you play tabletop and want to transport you pro-controller then this mini version may be a good purchase? I don't know.
(The joycons need improvement for many!)
I'm happy with my Custom Pro Controller from Etsy:
i'm happy with the size of the Nintendo Switch Pro controller; its the Wii U Pro controller that is way too big.
I'll stick with my Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Edition Pro Controller: it's already very comfortable.
Do buttons include joysticks? If everything was identical, it would be nice, but just the buttons is a hard pass for me.
I am fine with my Super Smash Bros edition Pro Controller! Perfect size for me!
@Benexcelsior It's not only the size but the totally non ergonomical grip as well tbh, there are joycons with a pro controller like grip out there and even an extra button on there.
This is literally a copy of the HORI mini controllers that launched last year like it's the exact same size and shape.
Oh yeah, exactly what the Switch needs. More tiny controller options. Joycons are already made from Gameboy Micro parts they had left over for a target demo of toddler hands...
Not at all Joy Cons way too small. Also the drift thing. Happened to three of mine.
No, I wish someone would make a pro controller for BIG hands! I'm always getting cramps when playing my switch with the pro controller.
