As seen by the Easter egg hunter Hidden Game Deals on TikTok, if you turn down the volume on your TV when bumping into colorful musical blocks, the Switch Pro Controller will somehow emit some lowkey but satisfying musical notes. It’s extremely quiet, so the controller should be, like, an inch or so from your ear. But even though it doesn’t house a real speaker, the Pro Controller still sings for you.

According to Hidden Gaming Deals, Nintendo programmed the controller’s vibrations to sound like music. So even if it doesn’t set an orchestral tone for you, as if it might be the PS5 that literally sings everything DualSense, instead it enthusiastically emits a facsimile of notes that give the impression of music. Kotaku also tested it, and can confirm that yes, DJ Mario does bops in the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller lounge. It’s a pain, especially if you can accurately platform it to structure a real song.
