The Nintendo Wizard Controller resembles the Gamecube pad, having similarities down to the big green A button and the slightly crooked X and Y buttons. But the Wizard appears to have more to offer than just that. The controller can be highly customised by the user, notably by changing the thumbsticks and using a button mapping profile function, which is very visibly different from other streaming controllers.
The Wizard Controller pad has two turbo function buttons for quick inputs, two back buttons for assigning secondary inputs, very brief trigger locks resembling those on the Nintendo Switch Pro controller and a nice light-up effect for the face buttons.
It appears that the NYXI Wizard has taken things further than just being similar to the other Nintendo or reputed gaming controllers. It doesn’t appear to be a regular gaming pad. Instead, it’s quite obviously attempting to mimic the Wavebird, a legendary wireless Gamecube controller that was once in high demand. The Wavebird may fetch absurd amounts on auction sites in the present day. For those people looking for an alternative and affordable gaming experience, options like the NYXI Wizard are a relief.
Price & Availability
The price of the Nintendo Wizard Switch Controller is not yet revealed by Nintendo. We can expect further information on the price and the international availability very soon after the official launch happens.
