Review in Progress

Although the Nintendo Switch has been out for quite some time, its lineup of arcade sticks is relatively lackluster. Thus, additions by the likes of PowerA, a well established manufacturer of controllers and accessories, are quite welcome. The Fusion is an arcade stick that allows you to play your way, whether it is wireless through Bluetooth or with a USB-C cable. The two included AA alkaline batteries should last you up to 30 hours of uninterrupted play. Otherwise, there is a front storage area that can be opened to plug in the cable. When wired, battery life is not consumed.

The buttons are full sized, and the joystick has a toggle switch for D-pad, left stick, and right stick modes in addition to there being system buttons. The solid build is reinforced with metal, and there are rubber feet to provide stability. Modders can design and print their own face cards using a downloadable template if they would like to replace the two default options, with the second option being primarily black. Regarding the price, the arcade stick does seem to be on the pricier side on Amazon considering how relatively little it offers.
