Use with PC platforms[edit]

Windows[edit]

A vJoy feeder / Driver for the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller on Windows with analog stick support and motion controls.
Custom application reWASD allows Nintendo Joy-Con to work as a pair or separately and works on Windows 7 or newer. Software gives advanced customization options an lets remap whole controller eg. reassigning buttons to keyboard or mouse actions, macros, activate custom modes etc.

Steam[edit]

Controller can be found in Supported Controller Database and it's correctly recognizable as Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.
Full support of Steam Input including gyroscope and motion controls.
You can toggle "Use Nintendo Button Layout" option depending on whether you prefer the A/B/X/Y buttons to be mapped as they are on the Pro Controller or to be mapped like it's an Xbox One controller.
You can map the controllers natively in Steam, but it doesn't let you use them separately.[1]

Steam Link compatibility[edit]

Works via USB and Bluetooth. Includes gyroscope and motion controls.[2]
Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit Y and disable video and audio streaming.
Needs remapping.[3]
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.
