Steam adds native Nintendo Switch Pro Controller support

Valve has announced that the latest Steam Client Beta adds support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. According to the team, the Nintendo Switch Pro controller d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers and the gyro enhances aim in your action/FPS titles. Yeap, there is also support for the gyro.

Those interested in testing it out will need to opt into the Steam Client Beta and enable support globally by checking the ‘Nintendo Switch Configuration Support’ option in the Controller Settings page.

Furthermore, the Controller Settings page also contains a global option to ‘Use Nintendo Button Layout’. This will swap the A/B and X/Y buttons of your loaded config.

Have fun everyone!
