One of the best third-party Nintendo Switch handheld controllers, the Hori Split Pad Compact, is on sale for just $35 (normally $50) at Amazon, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for the controller since it launched in 2022.
To get the reduced price, head to the Hori Split Pad Compact Amazon page and click the coupon box under the price to apply the discount. Note that the deal only works for the “Light Gray & Yellow” model; all other color options are still full price.
Hori Split Pad Compact
The Split Pad Compact is a smaller iteration of Hori’s other Split Pad Pro controller, featuring a similar button layout and features–like two programmable back paddles and turbo mode–but a less bulky design. The Split Pad Compact also lacks rumble, gyro, IR, and NFC support like the Pro version, so it’s not a holistic Joy-con replacement, but it’s still one of our favorite picks for playing Switch games in handheld mode.
While Amazon’s coupon deal is the perfect opportunity to pick up the standard Light Gray & Yellow model, Hori also announced two new Split Pad Compact colors are coming soon: Mint Green x White and Midnight Blue. Both new models will cost $50. You can preorder the Split Pad Compact Mint Green x White and Midnight Blue models at Amazon. The December 31 release date listed on Amazon’s page is just a placeholder, but the official launch day should be confirmed soon.

If you think the Split Pad Compact looks cool, but need a larger model, the Split Pad Pro is also on sale at Amazon for just $40 if you select the coupon box.
