Alongside the recent Nintendo Switch presentation, the company has announced availability and pricing of extra Nintendo Switch controllers and peripherals. While the base unit comes with two Joy-Con controllers, there is also a Pro Controller coming and you may want an extra JoyCon or two to play with friends and family.
First up, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller will set you back $69.99USD, which isn’t too shabby considering official Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers go for around $60USD these days. Like the Joy-Con controllers, the Pro Controller includes motion controls, HD rumble, built-in amiibo functionality, and more. Speaking of the Joy-Con controllers, you can pick up an additional one for $49.99USD or save yourself $10 by picking up a pair for $79.99USD. It looks like the pair of controllers are available in a few packages including two grey, two red, two blue, or one red and one blue JoyCon.
The Joy-Con Charging Grip allows you to combine the left and right Joy-Con into one larger controller and keep playing while you’re charging your Joy-Con. If you’re looking forward to tearing up the track in Super Mario Kart 8, a two-pack Joy-Con Wheel set is also available. The Charging Grip will have an MSRP of $29.99USD, while the Joy-Con Wheel set has an MSRP of $14.99USD.
Finally, you’ll also be able to pick up the Nintendo Switch Dock Set which includes a Nintendo Switch Dock, Nintendo Switch AC adapter, and an HDMI cable. Even though the Dock Set does come with each Nintendo Switch, it’d be handy to have an extra one around if you plan on playing on multiple TVs in the house. The Nintendo Switch Dock Set will retail for $79.99USD.
