One Nintendo Switch, regardless of wired and wireless, can access 8 controllers at the same time. In the specific game, the number of players is determined by the content and mode. The left and right Joy-cons are counted as two controllers separately. So when it is used in pairs, the actual number of players will decrease. For example, in the picture below, 8 controllers are fully connected, and the actual number of players is 7. If everyone uses the paired Joy-con, the actual number of players is only 4.

For PRO handles, you can use a c to c USB cable to connect it to the main body, or use a to c USB cable to connect to the base where the main body is placed to complete the handle matching. After the matching is complete, you can press and hold the HOME button in the wireless state to wake up the host with the handle.

Joy-con and PRO handles can also be matched wirelessly.
