Switch accessory manufacturer GuliKit recently announced its latest product, the new GuliKit KingKong 2 controller which uses a patented electromagnetic technology to allegedly do away with any controller drift. The controller looks sleek, and similar to an Xbox One controller in shape, but is designed to work perfectly with the Nintendo Switch.

As well as the new anti-drift technology, the separate GuliKit KingKong 2 Pro controller features NFC technology for your amiibo, while both versions of the controller feature motion controls, and can even wake the Nintendo Switch from sleep mode. Honestly, if it manages to do all of these things well, this could be a serious contender for one of the best third-party Switch controllers on the market.

The Gulikit KingKong 2 controller is even compatible with your mobile and PC, with interchangeable face buttons, so you can put the A or B button wherever feels more natural.
