The Nintendo Switch, unlike its competitors, has an incredible assortment of accessories to choose from. Controllers, chargers, carrying cases, screen protectors, adapters, and even MicroSD cards are all part of the immense pool of peripherals meant to enhance your Switch-owning experience. We’ve gathered the best Nintendo Switch accessory deals to help cut through the clutter.
Since the Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console, what you incorporate into your daily routine can mean the difference between ease of use or a perpetual state of anxiety over whether you’ll lose one of its itty-bitty cartridges or damage its oh-so-delicate screen.
The catch is, that since it is a Nintendo product, you can expect prices for Nintendo Switch accessories to be a bit … overwhelming. Especially for those of us working with a budget. That’s why we decided to put together a small roundup of the best Nintendo Switch deals available on Amazon this week.
You’ll not only save money on these great Nintendo Switch accessories, but you’ll be able to game in style.
The Nintendo Switch, and particularly the older model, doesn’t have the greatest battery life. If you plan on using your system in handheld mode for the majority of a day, you’re going to need an external battery pack to keep it fully charged. The Anker PowerCore 20100 — Nintendo Switch Edition has enough juice included to power the system 2.5 extra times on top of its initial charge, for a total playtime of around 20 hours. It can also fully charge the system in as little as 3.5 hours, and the package includes a travel pouch, guide, and cable to get you started. Normally $90, it’s currently on sale for just $70.
Nintendo has plenty of games that look wonderful when the Switch is connected to a television, but others are best experienced in handheld mode. If you want to play a game like Super Mario Maker 2 or Fire Emblem: Three Houses with fewer headaches, Hori’s D-Pad Controller is the perfect replacement for the left Joy-Con. It adds a traditional directional pad in place of the buttons on the standard Joy-Con, giving you more precision in platformers or grid-based games. It can only be used in handheld mode, but at just $15 during its sale, you have little to lose.
Nintendo likes to use proprietary technology for many of its devices, but you can still get your Bluetooth gaming headset working on the Switch with this HomeSpot adapter. The device is being offered for $40 — down from its standard $55 — and plugs into either the USB-C port on your Switch or the port on your dock, letting you use Bluetooth headphones in either configuration. It features a built-in digital microphone, can stream two headphones simultaneously, and a simple two-button control system will let you get everything connected quickly.
Sure, you could have a Nintendo Switch dock that was missing a picture of world-famous Pokémon Pikachu on the side, but then you would just have a standard, boring, non-Pikachu-adorned dock. PDP heard your cries and created the Nintendo Switch Pokémon Light-up Dock Shield. The Shield goes underneath your dock and can light up as if it were being shocked by the electric rat himself. If you prefer, a Zelda and Mario dock shield are also available. To use the dock shield, you connect it to the dock via USB, and place the acrylic framing panels on the side. It’s elegant, it’s whimsical, and it can be yours for nearly 25% off right now.
OK, so nothing is quite as perfect for those furious Super Smash Bros. Ultimate matches as an OG GameCube controller, but this Nintendo Switch Pro Controller might just be the next best thing. It features motion controls, HD rumble, and Amiibo functionality. The original price tag of $70 is nice, obviously, but a saving of $8 is even nicer. Plus, it means you can expand that Amiibo budget.
What good is a new Joy-Con charging station if you don’t have new Joy-Con controllers? Amazon is currently offering a $10 discount on several different colors of Joy-Con two-pack bundles. These packages not only come with the controllers themselves but also the Joy-Con Straps you use to make the horizontal orientation better for games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We suggest choosing colors you don’t already own, so you’ll quickly be able to tell them apart from your original ones.
