This is an article that layouts the best controllers to use for playing Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise) using a Nintendo Switch. There are three controllers that we recommend so stick around to know what they are and where to buy them!
List of Contents
|Nintendo Switch Pro Controller||$69.99||Wireless||Yes|
|HORIPAD for Nintendo Switch||$19.99||Wireless / Wired||No|
|HORI Split Pad Pro||$49.99||Joy-Con||No|
Nothing beats the original! Officially sold by Nintendo, this controller is equipped with HD Rumble and has the best grip - perfect for Monster Hunter! The price is pretty steep but it's all worth it!
|Where To Buy|
Cop the Special Edition Monster Hunter Rise Pro Controller to hunt in style! For more details about the Special Edition Pro Controller & Nintendo Switch, check out the article below!
This is an officially licensed controller sold by HORI. It has a very low price so they are sold out in most stores! It has two types: wireless and wired controllers.
|Where To Buy|
Nintendo's base joycon does not feel very good to the hands and has a horrible grip so we do not recommend it for playing Monster Hunter Rise. But if you really want to play portable, we suggest buying a HORI Split Pad Pro!
|Where To Buy|
When buying a controller, always check if the product is officially licensed by Nintendo. Unofficial or unlicensed products may malfunction when Nintendo patches off support - wasting your money.
Other consoles' controllers (PS4, PS5, XB1, or XSX) may be made to work with the Nintendo Switch by using adaptors. This can be done usually by connecting the adapter to the Switch's USB-C port or the USB-A ports on the dock.
As these adaptors can be unlicensed, there is a risk for the products to be unsupported by a future Switch update. We still recommend buying licensed products instead of reusing other consoles' controllers.
Not all officially licensed controllers have vibration support and so far only those from Nintendo have it. Do check if the controllers you bought have vibration support before you consider them broken!
|1||Press Settings from the Switch Home Screen|
|2||Go to Controllers and Sensors and make sure Controller Vibration is turned ON|
