Chinese bootleggers have flooded the market with fake Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers – but thankfully, they’re quite easy to identify.
The easiest way to identify a fake Pro Controller is the absence of the Nintendo Switch logo and other Nintendo branding on the back. On the left we have the real thing and on the right the fake bootleg.
A not very obvious sign is how the + and – buttons look like from above. On the real Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers, the buttons are flushed in, while on the fake bootleg, they are jutting out.
The battery looks different too – no Japanese words and the absence of the Nintendo logo.
These signs should be enough to help you spot a fake Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. For more, check out the video below:
