PowerA will release officially licensed accessories for Nintendo Switch, four of which will be made available at launch.


The company has a rather long history of creating licensed accessories for Nintendo, and the ones to be made available for Nintendo Switch focus on “portability, comfort, protection and power,” according to PowerA.

Below is a list of accessories to be made available for Switch at launch, details of which came straight from PowerA.

Joy-Con Comfort Grip ($14.99): Double-injected rubber grips that provide a more comfortable, traditional controller-like experience for the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers. The easy slide-in design secures each Joy-Con controller while providing visible player indicator lights. The Joy-Con Comfort Grip will be available for $14.99 MSRP.

Joy-Con Charging Dock ($29.99): Charges and displays up to four Joy-Con controllers simultaneously with an easy slide-in design.

Hybrid Cover ($24.99): Featuring a magnetic closure, the Hybrid Cover keeps the Nintendo Switch system secure and protected when not in the dock. It can be flipped to provide a built-in stand and comes with a screen protector and cleaning cloth.

Everywhere Messenger Bag ($29.99): Stored the complete Nintendo Switch system in one place for easy portability. It comes with fitted compartments, and sports a 2-in-1 design with a removable internal case that carries the Nintendo Switch for handheld mode.

Again, all four accessories will be available when Nintendo Switch launches. Each can be purchased online or at retail stores. More accessories from PowerA for the console will be made available later this year.

The Nintendo Switch will retail for $299.99 in the US, £279.99 in the UK, and ¥29,980 in Japan.

It will launch March 3 in Japan, the US, Europe and other major territories.
