snakebyte Unleashes the Power of Multi-Player: Announcing Shipping of the MULTI:PLAYCON™ Controller for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite

snakebyte announced today the shipping of the MULTI:PLAYCON™ controllers for use with Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles, a new way to enjoy multi-player gaming on Switch and designed for sustained gaming sessions. An ideal alternative to the standard Joy-Con™ controllers, the MULTI:PLAYCON™ is available as a set with two pieces, coming in eye-catching colours of blue/orange or black/grey for 34.99€. The MULTI:PLAYCON™ is shipping now from leading game retail stores, and also available via the new online shop: mysnakebyte.com.

The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite are notorious for endless local multi-player experiences, games made all the better when more players are participating. The new MULTI:PLAYCON™ controllers have been designed with localised multi-play in mind and have been specially developed for multiplayer games. Notably larger in size for a more comfortable gaming experience, the MULTI:PLAYCON™  is built to last and produces less fatigue when taking part in marathon Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate!

Up to 16 MULTI:PLAYCON™ controllers can be simultaneously connected to a single Nintendo Switch at any time. Analog sticks and micromotor vibration provide accurate control for even the trickiest of games, always ensuring the player is in full control. With a range of up to 7m, effortless syncing and a rock-solid connection, the new snakebyte MULTI:PLAYCON™ controllers are a must for games like Mario Kart 8™ Deluxe, Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate, Overcooked 2 and many more. In addition, the MULTI:PLAYCON™ controllers are perfect for the growing library of retro games, recently available to subscribers of Switch Online.

Note to editor: If a game requires two Joy-Con controllers for one player gaming, the MULTI:PLAYCON™ will not serve as an accurate replacement.
