A recent major update for the enhanced version of Quake brought a number of changes to the game, including improved analog input on controllers, aim smoothing, and various other general tweaks. However, one detail that wasn’t highlighted is that it’s now possible to play the game using mouse and keyboard controls on consoles, including Nintendo Switch.
As tweeted by idTechpics (below), one Reddit user showed the Nintendo Switch version set up to fully support mouse and keyboard controls via the dock’s USB ports. In the image the Switch is docked, with the player trading out a Pro Controller in favour of the game’s original control scheme.
We’ve tested this ourselves with a wireless keyboard and mouse, and it works pretty seamlessly. On Switch in particular, it’s an ususual feature, with very few games offering native support for keyboard and mouse (with on of the few other notable examples being Hypnospace Outlaw).

A remastered version of Quake was initially revealed back in August during QuakeCon following a leak. The game then launched the very same day for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as well as Xbox Game Pass. As of October 12, the games have also been upgraded for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, offering 4K, 120 frames per second play.
The enhanced version of Quake comes with the game’s original expansions, The Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity as well as including MachineGames’ Dimension of the Past update, which was released to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary. For players looking for a new challenge, the enhanced edition also included a second expansion called Dimension of the Machine.
