The Switch pro controller will work with your PC games too

If you’re picking up a Switch pro controller alongside the console this week, it looks like you’ll be able to use it with your PC games as well.

YouTube user Drewoof has gotten his hands on the controller early, and shows how the controller works through a Bluetooth connection. He’s also released another video in which he briefly explains how to connect the controller.

Drewoof shows it working with the Dolphin emulator (used for GameCube and Wii games), but it should also work for any game with gamepad support, he says. “It works with Steam Big Picture as well”, Drewoof clarifies.

This wasn’t something we necessarily expected from a Nintendo branded controller, so it’s good news – especially since most reports suggest that the controller is top-notch. The Switch, and the pro controller, launch on March 3.
