Nintendo unveiled the release date and pricing for the Nintendo Switch earlier today. In addition the company also revealed some of the accessories coming to the Switch and how much they’ll cost.
The Nintendo Switch, as standard, will come with the main Switch console, two Joy-Con controllers (both left and right), a Joy-Con Grip which two Joy-Con controllers attach to to be used as a single controller, a set of Joy-Con wrist straps, a Nintendo Switch dock, a HDMI cable, and an AC adaptor.
This should be enough to get you started, but what if you ended up losing some of those things, particularly the fairly small Joy-Con controllers? What if you wanted to use a different controller for the console? Well Nintendo has the answers and has released a full list of added accessories players can grab for their Switch when it launches this March.
So, if you happen to lose or damage a Joy-Con controller, or if you fancy a different colour, you can currently pre-order a pair of Joy-Con controllers for £74.99, available in Grey, Neon Red, and Neon Blue. You’ll also be able to purchase Joy-Cons separately, priced at £42.99, though these are available only in Grey.
Those Joy-Con straps which come as standard will set you back £4.99, though I’m sure soon enough some third-party options will become available. The Charging Grip is also available separately for £27.99.
Finally, as you’d expect with any Nintendo console, you can purchase a wheel peripheral, the Joy-Con Wheel Pair is available for £13.99 which will launch on April 28 along side Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – there’s also likely going to be a bundle released for this, too.
Finally, to ensure your Joy-Con’s don’t get destroyed, you can purchase “Protective Armour” for £14.99.
Now, if you’re looking for a more traditional controller, the Switch will also have a Pro Controller, though it won’t be cheap. It’s currently priced at £64.99 for the wireless version, and £27.99 for wired.
