If you suddenly find yourself in need of extra Switch controllers for your Super Smash Bros. parties, PowerA’s enhanced wireless controller is down to $40 on Amazon right now, an all-time low.

It’s laid out exactly like the official Switch Pro controller (currently $70), but with a few compromises. There’s no NFC for amiibo, there’s no rumble, and it eschews a rechargeable battery in favor of AAs. Personally, I think those are fine trade-offs to save $30, especially if you’re giving this controller to someone else to use, and keeping the authentic Nintendo gear to yourself.
