Nintendo’s latest console is here and already doing amazing worldwide. If you’ve been enjoying your hybrid console but are in need of accessories to improve your experience, look no further.
We’re here to help by providing our list of of the best Nintendo Switch accessories to buy.
Just like with your smartphone or tablet, the last thing you want is an annoying scratch on your lovely screen. You want your Nintendo Switch looking sharp for as long as possible, which means protecting its impressive 6.2-inch display. These Amazon best-sellers by amFilm are the most reliable and affordable screen protectors you can find.
The incredibly thin 0.3mm glass screen offers ultra-clear high definition with 99.9% transparency while still preserving the touchscreen’s sensitivity. It boasts a a surface hardness 9H with oleophobic coating that reduces the chance of scratches and fingerprints.
If you still need convincing, consider the near-perfect Amazon rating out of more than 3,000 customer reviews. The pack comes with 2 glass screen protectors, wet/dry wipes, dust removal stickers, squeeze card, and an installation user guide.
Although a lot of people are loving using their Joy-Con grips to play, Nintendo knew many of us would want a more traditional method. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller was designed to give us the most comfortable way possible to play the latest games for hours on end.
The best part about this controller option is that you’re not missing any of the features from the Joy-Cons. This includes motion controls as well as HD rumble to really feel like you’re part of the action. The Switch Pro Controller also comes with built-in Amiibo functionality and a phenomenal 40 hours of battery life per charge.
If you’d prefer a wider grip plus larger buttons and joysticks, the Pro Controller is hands-down one of the best Nintendo switch accessories to buy.
This is another top Nintendo switch accessory if your pet peeve is running out of battery during your gaming session. Of course, this awesome HORI Playstand offers a lot more than the ability to charge your Nintendo Switch while playing.
In case you haven’t noticed, Nintendo didn’t design the Switch with the handiest of kickstands. The problem isn’t that it can break easy (it’s quite durable, actually) but that it only offers one viewing angle. This stand lets you adjust the angle so you can actually set up your Nintendo Switch screen and play on any desk, table, etc.
The also stand folds up for portability and comes with rubberized grips so you don’t have to worry about any slipping.
Every gamer, especially the avid ones, must accept that all controllers slowly degrade from use over time. The smart ones, however, do everything they can to make sure their accessories receive as little wear and tear as possible.
When it comes to your Joy-Con controllers, this is the best option. These non-slip silicon covers protect your Joy-Cons while giving you a better grip while you play. The skins fit just right, making sure all the thumb sticks and buttons are perfectly accessible and in no way hindered.
Best of all, Mibote was kind enough to also toss in a pair of thumb stick caps to keep them protected. You also get a choice of either Black covers or Blue/Red to match your Joy-Con controllers.
We know what you’re thinking. Why should you buy another pair of grips if some already came with the console? The better question you should ask yourself is: do you hate having to stop in the middle of a game all because your Joy-Cons are out of juice?
If that sounds like you then this charging grip is an excellent investment. The magic of the Joy-Con Charging Grip is that it lets you charge your Joy-Con controllers while you’re playing. It’s also the perfect choice if you want a second player to join you and also enjoy the comfort of Joy-Con grips.
The fact that many agree Nintendo should have included this in the main bundle to begin with makes this one of the best Nintendo Switch accessories to buy. A huge bonus is that this charging grip comes included with a USB-A to USB-C cable, allowing you to not only charge the grip itself but also your main Nintendo Switch device as well.
As Karen from the Switch’s reveal trailer first showed us, Nintendo’s latest console is all about mobility. Unlike competing consoles, you can grab your Nintendo Switch and set it up anywhere else to play with friends and family.
If this sounds like something you’ll be doing a lot, you’ll want to make sure to keep that shiny new console safe. This travel case by RDS Industries does just that by providing a durable hard shell to hold and protect the Nintendo Switch. It also features zippered mesh pockets for holding extra games along with a padded divider to keep the screen unharmed.
Other bonuses include two game card cases (each one holds 4 Nintendo Switch games) along with two Micro SD card cases that hold 2 Micro SD cards each. If you plan on transporting your Switch often and want to reduce any chance of damage or wear, this Nintendo Switch accessory is the way to go.
If there’s one thing Nintendo is good at, it’s providing worthwhile multiplayer experiences. As other developers continue their focus on online, Nintendo is still the go-to company if you want games that can be played with friends and family at your side.
But what makes the Nintendo Switch even more special is that the Joy-Cons can be split up and used by two other players. Investing in another pair of Joy-Con controllers means two more people can join in on the fun, depending on the game. Super Bomberman R, for example, lets up to 8 players battle it out.
Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers currently come in two color schemes: Black and Red/Blue. If couch/local multiplayer is your thing and you plan on buying upcoming titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2, this is one of those Nintendo Switch accessories you can’t do without.
