Could you imagine that you can use the PS or Xbox controller on Nintendo Switch console? Or maybe you prefer playing with a mouse and keyboard but still want to check some classic Nintendo games? We have great news today — it’s all possible now — and only with reWASD! In the new version, we introduce virtual Switch Pro controller which could be used locally on a PC, but it would be better to connect it to your console.
To use a keyboard, mouse, PS or Xbox controller on Nintendo Switch console, you need a Bluetooth adapter which should work in External mode (or GIMX adapter as a superfast wired solution). Download the latest version and check this video guide that describes all the steps. It may be dangerous to go alone, so take your amiibo with you! Once the config is applied and the connection is set, you will also be able to “hold” the amiibo backup next to virtual Switch Pro gamepad to get some loot 🤩
Starting from reWASD 6.2, you can emulate any combo you wish when your finger touches the button or when you release your finger from it. Also, you may try to use the Start activator instead of Single Press — this way it will be emulated always in addition to other activators you may set up. Inside Combo Editor, we have added some perks too. For example, now you can start a combo with a pause (which will result in “delayed” action) or start it with rumble to get the same delay and a friendly buzz in the beginning.
Maybe you have other ideas to implement in Combo? Do not hesitate to share with us!
Before you start using a PS or Xbox controller on Nintendo Switch console, you will definitely see some changes on the start page. We have added more options there, so you can open a game profile or adjust device settings much easier. If something goes wrong when you adjust a config, check the context menu to clear all added mappings (or wipe only the ones from a single sub-config). If you found your perfect Response curve for a stick, gyro or mouse, be sure that you copied it from the context menu to paste to the new config. If you have any Shift added, try to rename it — so Overlay shows you the customized notification when you switch layers. Finally, check Preferences → Tray agent to choose the custom color for the battery status icon for all devices which report it.
