What joystick--fighting stick or otherwise--do you recommend for playing shmups on Nintendo Switch?

Offhand, there's a Hori RAP that might be the most serious option.

I'm plotting on purchasing a Switch stick too.

Recently saw a review of the "8BitDo N30 Bluetooth Arcade Joystick" https://youtu.be/SJkYSDOjGjM

It seemed OK. I like the versatility/comparability. But not too sure of the build quality or if it can be easily modded with better parts

Ideally, one day I'd just like to have one decent stick that works with everything... under $150...

I don’t have a switch but I held out on solding in a special board into my madtcatz stick. Maybe Brook has a usb adapter for the switch. I used one for my 360 stick to my ps4 and it works flawlessly.

I heard the 8bitdo stick is similar to the Mayflash F300, but with support for less systems. I heard they can be modded and there's even a version of the F300 equipped with Sanwa parts (F300 elite). The Mayflash Magic-NS adapter seems to work well for 360 joysticks like the RAP SE.

I have a Mayflash F300 that I modded with all Sanwa parts, that I'm really happy with and works on almost everything from the last 2 gens. Though I find that Nintendo's USB support does produce a little bit of lag, or maybe lag isn't the right term for it. Basically it seems like on the Switch Nintendo is polling the USB at a really low rate, so it doesn't feel as responsive as the stick does on other platforms. I hope that's something that eventually address in a future firmware update.

I also use a modified Mayflash F300. Works great on all of my systems.

Been using the magic NS adapter with a madcatz SE with no problems to speak of, not a bad setup, cheap and plentiful. Keep the drivers up to date though

The brooks universal fighting board seems to be the best option if you have an old stick lying around (It's a pcb you put into an exisiting arcade stick - it has solderless options I believe). It's expensive, but cheaper than a new arcade stick and will work with nearly everything. Will be getting one myself to upgrade an old omni etokki stick.

Brook indeed does make their adapters for the switch, I have a 360 to Switch adapter from them myself so I can use my trusty Madcatz stick.

Is this the adapter you're talking about? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0753XF3WT/re ... nCbM9SWSBD

Yup, looks like the one.

I can't say that much about it besides that it works; I used it once, but with the way I have my switch setup in the living room it's too much of a hassle to get the fightstick over.

If it's anything like my brook 360 to PS4 adapter though, it should work great as long as you remember the occasional firmware update.

Have you tried your adapter on your ps3 ( if you have one?) oddly enough mine worked. I just happened to try it since the ps3 did an update that allows the use of a ps4 controller, same results though as the home button does not work..

Thanks for all the advice, everybody! I bit the bullet (heh heh) and bought the HORI Hayabusa. Can't wait for it to be delivered!
