Steam now officially supports the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
Steam now officially supports Nintendo's latest controller. Huzzah!
If you game on Nintendo Switch as well as your PC, you'll be pleased to hear that Steam now officially supports the Nintendo Pro Controller as an input (via PC Gamer). It requires the beta Steam client for now, but there are no more tedious workarounds required.
The Switch Pro Controller is treated every bit as well as an Xbox One or PS4 controller, allowing you to use either the standard Nintendo configuration or create your own, even on a game-by-game basis.
There's a helpful post on the Steam Community walking you through the setup process. If this sounds like a controller you could get behind, you can currently pick one up for $59.
