One of the activities that avid gamers enjoy is looking for hidden easter eggs or secrets within game worlds. In this regard, Nintendo decided to plant its own easter egg in the form of a secret message, hidden in the Switch Pro Controller.

The Pro Controller has a partly translucent body which allows users to look into the inner workings. It was here that people on social media discovered a very brief text that read “thnx2 allgamefans!” or “Thanks to all game fans,” reports Kotaku.

The font is very small and will require either pressing the analog stick or toggling it down to get a glimpse of the hidden message.

This little message may seem insignificant against the grand gaming tapestry and yet, it’s the discovery of little tidbits like these that gamers enjoy. Well played, Nintendo! Alfred Bayle/JB
