  1. It’s a golden rule of gaming, especially mobile, that you’re eventually going to want some cool accessories on the go. It can be a tricky minefield of first-party bank breakers or third-party cheapskates, though, so it’s helpful to have a guiding hand in making your accessorizing decisions. We stopped by Nyko’s booth at this year’s E3 to check out their immense collection of Nintendo Switch accessories and determine which might be good fits for owners of Nintendo's hybrid device. Power Shell Case Release: July 2017 Price: $39.99 The kingpin of Nyko’s lineup, this hardshell case not only holds your Switch and up to 12 games, but it also stores up to three hours worth of charge for the Switch. The case doubles as a stand, with the USB plug-in resting at its bottom, allowing you to charge while playing stationary. The Power Shell Case might be a solid idea if you tend to play rough or have yet to pick up a case at all. Dock Bands Release: June 2017 Price: $4.99 Simple and stretchy, these little bands may not look like much. But for those worried about scuffing or scratching the screen on their Nintendo Switch, this item might be a lifesaver. The bands slip over the sides of the Switch’s screen and provide a protective buffer between the screen and dock when you insert it. Swivel Grip for Switch Controller Release: August 2017 Price: $9.99 Want a little extra grip on your Switch Joy-Con but don’t want to spring for a Pro Controller? These cheap plastic grips attach to the bottom of either Joy-Con and swivel out to form the traditional, not-quite-banana-like shape of most modern controllers. Charge Base for Switch Release: August 2017 Price: $29.99 The Switch is designed for portability, but it’s home dock definitely isn’t. If you’re the type to bring your Switch to a party, it’s easy to run out of power before the night grows old. Bringing the charge base along with you will allow you to restore battery life while you prop up the Switch on your friend’s mom’s dinner table. Which of these accessories do you think will be a good fit for you? View full article

  3. The big N is at it again. During a Nintendo Direct yesterday, Nintendo announced that they would be releasing a new Joy-Con controller variant. No longer will players be confined to grey, red, and blue options for their controller needs. The neon yellow Joy-Cons are sure to add some pizzazz to anyone's console line-up and they are releasing alongside a yellow wrist strap controller add-on that will blend better than the grey wrist straps. Perhaps more importantly, a battery pack will also be coming soon to help extend the battery life of the Joy-Con controllers (though a first party battery pack for the Switch itself like the one we told you about last week doesn't seem to be in the works). Both the yellow Joy-Con and the controller battery packs will be released on June 16, the same day as Nintendo's upcoming boxing game Arms. Also, for those who have been on the lookout for standalone Switch docking units, take heart! More will be released on May 19. Though pricey, these docks have found themselves in high demand from people who want to play their Switch on different televisions. As a result, many retailers have simply sold out. Nintendo, either to artificially inflate demand or because it didn't foresee that so many people might want more than one dock, hasn't released new docking units to retailers. This upcoming shipment should help relieve some of the demand pressure. View full article

  5. New Jersey native Peter Byrne loves playing video games. Specifically, he loves playing his PlayStation 4. There was one small problem, though - Byrne has cerebral palsy that affects his left side. That meant whenever his tremors would cause him to accidentally touch the PS4 controller's touchpad, pausing whatever game he was in. “When I play, I would hit the touchpad with my hand,” Byrne, 21, told local news outlet, News 12 New Jersey, “It’s very sensitive, [so] it would pause the game.” Eventually, the issue got so distracting that Byrne reached out to Sony, where he was told by marketing team member Alex Nawabi that they would look into his controller issues and see if they could find a solution. As there were no official PlayStation resources for this particular problem, Nawabi took matters into his own hands. Byrne's plight hit the marketing employee hard. "It killed me to hear how something you used to enjoy thoroughly was being ruined because of our new controller design," he wrote to Byrne. It took Alex Nawabi ten hours and three attempts to create a modified PlayStation 4 controller for Peter Byrne. The specialized version disables the touchpad and reroutes its button functionality to a new position on the back of the controller. Nawabi warned Byrne that the controller was not covered under warranty, but that he was prepared to make another for Byrne if the first should break. "I'm not 100% sure how long it will last, as it's the first time I've ever done anything like this," he wrote. "I have plans to build you one more controller in case this one breaks but I'd like feedback on this one first." Byrne is thrilled with his new controller which hasn't broken yet. You can read Byrne's version of the story on this Facebook post.

  7. The internet is on fire with speculation following a Reddit post earlier today that claims to be showcasing Nintendo's NX controller. The design seems to conform to rumors of what the controller will look like, following the patented designs of the controller as well as earlier leaked images. If accurate, the controller on display in the image probably isn't the final design. It is likely that it comes from a developer kit sent out by Nintendo and will likely go through some small iterative improvements before commercial release. From the images, the controller appears to have two shoulder buttons along with a home button and two joysticks. Additional buttons seem like they will be added digitally as seen in an earlier leaked image. These on-screen could include some improved form of haptic feedback to give them the feeling of having pressed something. It also includes a headphone jack which lends some credence to the rumors that Nintendo wants to make the controller its own device that people can take with them on the go. Similarities between reflections in the leaked NX screens and trees around the headquarters of Swedish game developer Massive have led some on various forums around the internet to speculate that the leak originated there. If these are accurate, what do you all think of the direction Nintendo is taking with their next-gen console?
