Since the Switch’s inception, one complaint that has rang consistent has been the JoyCons. Whether it is the drift or the remotes being too small, they simply are not the best for long-term gaming. Thankfully, HORI released the Split Pad Pro alongside Daemon X Machina in September 2019. Since then, HORI has released a few variations of the Split Pad Pro, and today we have learned that Monster Hunter Rise will be getting its own special edition.
The new Split Pad Pro will be available in April, shortly after Monster Hunter Rise‘s release date, so if you are looking for something a bit more comfortable as you hunt monsters on the go, this is a worthy alternative to the JoyCons.
As of this writing, the Monster Hunter Rise Split Pad Pro is only available from Amazon Japan, among other Japanese retailers. However, it looks like there are no shipping restrictions, so if you are willing and unable to wait for an announcement for your area, you can go ahead and pre-order on Amazon Japan.
UPDATE: You can now order the this from Play Asia.
