PS5 DualSense Works With Nintendo Switch (VIDEO)

PS5 DualSense

We are mere days away from the release of next-gen consoles, with various media members and influencers already getting their hands on them for review purposes. That said, one person who has the PS5 DualSense has confirmed that the new controller works with Nintendo Switch thanks to an adapter.

Content creator BrokenGamezHDR recently took to Twitter to share a video that shows the PS5 DualSense working with the Nintendo Switch. We see them navigating the Switch’s home menu before jumping back into some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. However, there is a catch. Those who wish to use the DualSense on the Switch will need the 8bitdo adapter, which can be found for roughly $20 at various retailers.

What makes all of this particularly interesting is the fact that the PS5 DualSense doesn’t work natively on the PlayStation 4 or PS3, but some folks have confirmed that it will work with PS4 Remote Play. Of course, players will be able to play PS4 titles with the DualSense on PS5 via backwards compatibility. In any case, there will surely be somebody out there who get the new controller working with old hardware soon after launch.

Speaking of which, the PlayStation 5 is set to initially launch on November 12th. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as we learn more about the PS5 DualSense, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
