About this deal

Sony's Dual Sense, and Microsofts Controllers (standard and elite) have notorious drift issues due to the oem of the stick having low use lifetime for them. We’re talking motion controls, rumble support, wireless, amiibo support, and the controller can wake up the Switch from sleep mode with the press of the home button. The delay compared to the Switch Pro Controller seems to be a difference of a single game-frame of Breath of the Wild, and I can safely say that you Splatoon players have nothing to worry about now. Then there are all the other little things thrown in for good measure, stuff like a no-deadzone mode, 3 levels of stick sensitivity configurable per stick on the controller side (one of which pushes diagonal readings far beyond the perimeter of the circle for the handful of games that expect those sorts of readings for proper diagonal movement), turbo mode, customizable trigger sensitivity, customizable vibration with 4 levels including disabled, the ability to swap AB/XY if for some reason you wanted to, and then Autopilot Game mode which if I understand correctly lets you record up to 10 minutes of inputs and then set them on loop.

Designed with a patented anti-drift technology that uses magnets to manoeuvre the analog stick to reduce wear and tear, this controller has just about everything you could ask for, while also promising to never move like Beyoncé, and drift to the left, to the left.

Gulikit’s controller looks and feels better than these alternatives and is one of only two on the market with Hall effect sensors (they’re also found in the 8Bitdo Ultimate as Gulikit provides Hall effect thumbstick to other manufacturers). The weight is nice as it’s noticeable enough that you’re feeling something in your hands, but not too heavy to leave your wrists tired either.

Since it emulate the Switch Pro controller in Switch mode, some of Swtich mode's exclusive features are supported natively by a growing list of games, allowing the use of the controller and some/all of it supplementary features without any additional software installed. These might be issues that spring up after time but for the time being, I haven’t had issues with the KingKong 2 Pro. It's joy sticks feel really smooth to use compared to a Switch Pro controller where there is subtle friction. Personally I can only strongly recommend this controller as an vanilla Xbox 360 controller replacement on PC and maybe a Switch pro controller replacement (see concern above), but the other modes and features on PC have a few caveats that may or may not be big issues depending on your situation. There’s nothing a Pro Controller can do that the King Kong Pro can’t, which could be the first time a third-party controller has had complete parity with the official Nintendo product.There’s one weak link in the controller’s excellent feel: the triggers, which also use Hall effect sensors. It includes the Home and Screenshot buttons found on the Switch, and two additional face buttons for controlling built-in macro functionality. For the last week or so I've been using the Gulikit KingKong 2 Pro controller and I think it might be my favorite experience with a controller since the Gamecube days. Bought one, feels nice to use but has this horrible issue when playing Splatoon, the buttons get locked up.
