How to buy and use Nintendo Switch accessories
When Nintendo announced the first batch of the Nintendo Switch in May, the console had yet to receive its official price, but it was easy enough to determine what it would cost.
Nintendo’s official price of $399.99 was already way above what the average consumer would pay, and a Nintendo Switch game bundle included the console, two controllers, a power adapter and a charger.
But the console’s accessories cost a bit more than a Nintendo game bundle.
You needed a Nintendo Gamecube controller and a Wii Remote, a controller with a touchscreen, a Wii Balance Board and a Joy-Con.
And you needed to get one of the two Nintendo Switch docking stations, which attach to the console using a hook and loop.
You also needed to have a Nintendo 3DS, a new 3DS XL, a Nintendo DSi or DSi XL, and, of course, the Switch.
And for that price, you could have all those accessories.
But that didn’t mean the NintendoSwitch had to be all Nintendo, and Nintendo’s accessories didn’t include all the accessories the company has been pushing for.
The company has had to make some compromises, and they have not always been on the money.
So how did the Switch’s accessories stack up against the competition?
And what is the most important thing to know about Nintendo’s new accessories?
