Enhanced Ergonomics, Enhanced Gameplay

The Nitro Deck+ is designed with your comfort and functionality in mind so we've made three key enhancements to elevate your handheld gaming experience further...

New Symmetrical Thumbstick Layout
Enjoy enhanced comfort with a natural grip. This new right thumbstick location allows you to game comfortably for longer offering an enhanced ergonomic gaming experience.

New Sidekick Buttons
Lightning-fast reactions are now at your fingertips with fully programmable Sidekick buttons strategically placed on either side of each thumbstick for quick access.

Updated Default Re-mappable Back Buttons
The back buttons have been re-programmed to the X, Y, A, B actions buttons, these buttons keep essential controls within easy reach without compromising your grip on the deck.

These ergonomic changes are designed to work in conjunction with one another, with the new symmetrical thumbstick configuration, the Sidekick buttons are pre-programmed to replicate the B and A action button commands, allowing for quick operation. Replicating the most commonly used action buttons, facilitates speedier reaction times, and when used in combination with the additional re-mappable back buttons that are now mapped to X, Y, A, B out of the box, the Nitro Deck+ allows you to play faster, score higher and elevate your Nitro Deck handhled gaming experience.

New Docked Mode

The Nitro Deck+ is equipped with built-in HDMI output function and pre-orders come complete with an included USB-C to HDMI adapter, enabling seamless transition between handheld and TV play. Docked mode works by plugging in power to the input while the USB-C to HDMI adapter is plugged into the output and connected to a TV.

Not only does the Nitro Deck+ offer an on-the-go handheld solution for the Switch but now you can connect & play with friends or family, or even play solo while in Docked Mode and connected to a TV - making the Nitro Deck an all-in-one contoller solution for the Nintendo Switch.

The new easy eject system allows for simple removal of the Switch console from the Nitro Deck+ allowing gamers to safely remove their console with no need to touch or add stress to the screen while removing.
