If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner and you love to play multiplayer games with friends, you may be wondering how many controllers you can connect to your console at once. The answer is simple: four. That’s right, you can only connect a maximum of four controllers to your Switch, which means that you can only have up to four players in any given game.
This limitation applies to all controllers for the Switch, including the Joy-Con controllers that come with the console and any additional controllers that you may have purchased. If you look at the controllers, you’ll see that they have little lights that indicate which player is using them. Player one is the top light, player two is the second light, and so on. There are only four lights, which means that you can only have four players at once.
While it’s frustrating that you can’t have more players, you can have more controllers. For example, if you have a bunch of friends over and each of them has a different controller, you can connect all of them to your Switch. However, you can only have up to four players at any given time.
This limitation applies to all multiplayer games on the Switch, including popular titles like Mario Kart and Mario Party. While these games are great for playing with friends, you’ll need to limit your group to four players.
Overall, if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner and you’re looking to play multiplayer games with friends, you’ll need to keep the four-player limit in mind. While it’s not ideal, it’s the limitation that Nintendo has set, and there’s nothing you can do to change it.
