Valve is continually making improvements and expanding the ways gamers can play games on Steam, and with the latest update it’s now possible to use Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers on the beta client.
Share the news on August 4 in a new community post, Valve has announced that the Steam beta client will now allow players to input Nintendo Joy-Con controllers, both individually as a mini gamepad, as well as combined in pairs. This means that players who have currently opted into the Steam beta client can use the latest features before they are released on the main Steam client.
Following the addition of Nintendo Online Classic Controllers to June 17, including Nintendo 64, NES, SNES, Sega Mega Drive and Genesis controllers, Valve has also added improved support for them. While the update is small, it’s great that Steam is expanding its controller support and introducing new ways to play.
In other news, Valve recently announced that everyone who currently has a reservation is now guaranteed to get their hands on a Steam Deck by the end of the year. The company has confirmed that it has resolved supply chain issues and that some of those waiting for their wearables have been moved to Q3, while all other reservations are now in Q4.
The Steam Deck was released on February 25, but only those who were able to pre-order early were able to receive one at launch. The console comes in three price tiers: 64GB for $400, 256GB for $529, and 512GB (which includes other upgraded qualities) for $649.
