Performance Designed Products – or PDP, for short – has announced that the Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch is now available to pre-order.

It will be available in four colors – Black Camo, Blue Camo, Purple Camo, and Red Camo – with the ability to swap faceplates with existing Faceoff Controllers, such as those based on Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

This is the first controller for the portable home console that has integrated in-game chat and game audio. That’s thanks in part to Vivox, who recently released development tools to help developers add text and voice chat to Nintendo Switch games – and something that Epic Games has used with Fortnite, for example.

The controller has support for Vivox’s integrated in-game chat and game audio through a 3.5mm audio jack, with patented onboard audio controls letting you freely adjust the audio right from your controller. It has two additional programmable buttons and an interchangeable faceplate.

The Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch will release worldwide on July 22nd priced at $24.99, and can now be pre-ordered on and Amazon.
