Steam just added the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller among its supported devices, making it join the likes of PS4’s DualShock 4 and Xbox One’s joypad. It’s a nice addition for the PC players willing to use a controller in the style of Xbox 360’s.
The support is now available for those of you who join the Steam Client Beta, a similar process to the one that led to DualShock 4 and Xbox One controllers’ support back in the days.
“We think it is a great device with a feature set that pairs nicely with your Steam catalog. The d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers and the gyro enhances aim in your action/FPS titles,” a post on Steam claims.
“The Controller Settings page also contains a global option to ‘Use Nintendo Button Layout’. This will swap the A/B and X/Y buttons of your loaded config – something that will come in handy if you choose a Steam Controller, Xbox, or standard template config.”
You can see how to apply for the Steam Beta Client on the official website of the Steam community, where the process is explained step by step. It’s very easy and we suggest you to do it in case you have a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller of your own.
