Controller Chaos has been modifying controllers for ten years, and strive to provide customers with high-quality custom controllers for consoles and PCs.
Today we’re looking at the Limited Edition Galaxy Themed Joy-Con controllers, a unique, out-of-this-world design that feels smooth and clean to the touch. Unlike some other custom painted Joy-Con, these come paired with the plain black bumpers (which can be upgraded for an additional $9.98), but I found that 99% of the time these were were locked into my Switch itself.
Designing a controller is easy but the website feels dated. Luckily these LE Joy-Con don’t really require (or allow) much customization, but building your controller from scratch will be a little annoying. The selections all work fine, but you’ll feel like you’re working with an outdated website.
The quality and craftsmanship couldn’t be better. I found myself getting more compliments on my “cool controllers” than the Switch itself or the game I was playing. The paint’s finish is smooth, but not slick, which is something you won’t get from 3rd party shells sold on Amazon. Beyond the awesome paint job nothing feels different from the original Joy-Con that come straight from Nintendo, and I haven’t experienced any of the connection issues that plagued the first shipments of Joy-Con.
As with anything quality and custom-made, these things aren’t cheap. A set of Limited Edition Galaxy Themed Joy-Con from Controller Chaos will set you back $159.98, with options to add custom a “CHAOS TAG” for an additional $29.98, extended warranty for another $9.98, and shipping insurance for $9.98. Pass on the extras and snag yourself a clean set of custom Joy-Con. You won’t regret it!

His interest in amiibo started before their release but didn’t really take off until after the new year. He doesn’t like to admit it but Little Mac and WFT are among the amiibo that he had pre-ordered from Amazon but cancelled before their release. Little did he know a few months later he’d help start Amiibo Alerts. Gaming has always been his passion. He grew up with an NES, Sega Genesis, and PS2 before realizing that PCs truly are better than consoles.
The urge to be a little better, brought on by being a gamer, is what pushes him to help make Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal amazing communities. Together with the team he has built, he is realizing a life-long dream: bringing something helpful and fun to a large group of people. Andrew’s role at Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal as Founder and Editor in Chief allows him to create and build contacts within the community, review and present products, and stay on top of all things Nintendo.
