A few disclaimers:

I know I'm late to the punch, and I apologize. I also know I'm going to look like a crazy person for throwing so many items at you, so I apologize for that as well. I may also seem vaguely arrogant by the end of this, so please accept a third apology. I just like to take care of my electronics is all. My only credentials are anecdotal evidence that despite my rather rough job I've never even so much as cracked the screen on my cell phone so I like to think I'm pretty good at the "how do I prevent breakages" question.

Okay. So, I'm gonna rattle off a few items that I've bought for my own Switch, and my reasoning behind them. You DO NOT have to buy all of these items, but they are all useful on some level for the console.

The Joy-Con Controller If you're looking to get a second controller, start here. I'm sure you've figured out by now that one Joy-Con (JC) can be reconfigured to work as two controllers, so simply by buying a second JC you're now able to hit the 4-player local maximum for many of the Switch's games (including Mario Kart!). You can get the spouse, another kid, or even some friends playing during a party.

The Switch Pro Controller A more traditional-style controller. It's slightly cheaper and it's much more comfortable on large hands, but it CANNOT be split into two separate controllers like the Joy-Con can. Well, unless you get a saw or something but then it won't work at all anymore. Besides that it does function exactly the same as the standard JC controllers. There is also a wired version available that is even cheaper, but I personally have become spoiled in this wireless age and don't like cables dangling across my living room anymore.

Fitian Charging Dock for Joy-Cons Pretty self explanatory. Normally you charge your Joy-Cons by plugging them into the Switch, but if you have a second (or more) JC, it becomes a slight hassle to keep them all charged up. A charging dock can be a godsend. This is the one I use, simply plug it straight into your Switch Dock via USB.

FastSnail Joy-Con Grips There's a gazillion different versions of these things floating around, but these are the ones I personally use. I like them cause the shoulder L/R buttons are massive, and the grippy parts are really comfortable for extended use. Simply stick your Joy-Con halves into the plastic holders for a more comfortable grip. Holds them securely but they're still easy to pop back out as needed, no latches or screws or anything.

Orzly Carry Case ONE option for a carrying case. I was a little hesitant to recommend this particular item, but I may as well cause again, it's the one I use. The case itself is fine: durable, carries your Switch plus some games and accessories, and keeps them safe through your standards drops and bumps. However, if you fill it up as much as is shown in the pictures there on Amazon... At best you're gonna feel like you're mashing something, at worst you're gonna have trouble zipping it closed. What I've ended up doing is putting my Switch with an attached set of JCs, the games, and my adjustable stand (see next item) into the case, and then tossing the case plus whatever other particular accessories I need into my backpack. This case is NOT good to haul a lot of Switch stuff, JUST the console itself plus a handful of small bits for maybe a day trip or something. If you want to carry everything, look elsewhere. I've seen a few cases mentioned, but I can't recommend anything as I haven't tried anything.

Younik Compact Adjustable Stand I love this thing. If you're playing on the go and don't feel like holding it (and don't trust that stupid little kick stand on the back), you can unfold this thing and prop up the Switch on any flat surface for a much more comfortable viewing able. When you're done with it, you can fold it back flat and it fits nicely pretty much anywhere (like, for example, in the Orzly case I mentioned previously). Nintendo makes a first-party adjustable stand, but I actually like this one better. It costs a couple dollars less and feels sturdier. Its a luxury item to be sure, but it's nice to have when you want it.

Findway Protective Case A protective "jacket" for the Switch itself. I like this one because it snaps on and off of the Switch and JCs super easily, and is a sort of bendable plastic. Only 3 pieces: one for the tablet, and then one piece each for the left and right JCs. Easy to clean, too. Only drawback is that you HAVE to remove the jacket any time you want to dock the Switch in its charger. However, you're going to find that this is the case for any jacket that you want to buy for your Switch. You do NOT need to remove the jacket if you're simply sticking it in the aforementioned Adjustable Stand.

Pleson Tempered Glass Screen Protector Not much explanation needed here. I'm neurotic about getting screen protectors for all of my portable electronics, and I love the tempered glass ones. This one is cheap, it's durable, and it's easy to install with a steady hand. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend, even if only to keep your Switch looking nice through the wear and tear. You won't need to remove it for the dock, unlike the jacket.

I think that's everything for now. Again, I know it's a lot being thrown at you all at once, but you don't have to buy everything. This is all just stuff I've amassed for my own Switch that I've found useful or that I recommend. Pick and choose as you see fit. Feel free to shop around as well, these are just examples of all the particular items and there are MANY choices available for almost everything listed.

If you have any questions, I'm always happy to help.

u/pmo2408 · 38 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I was Xbox forever, started a new job on the road and decided to go for the switch as well for portability. Good choice.

Must Buys Accessories:

Screen protector - there is a 2 pack on amazon:

SD card (if going digital with games) - maybe go 256gb, amazon has a sale on them, you only need U1 speeds for the switch:

Carrying cases - I have two, one for the whole collection (switch, joycons, dock, charger, hdmi):

AmazonBasics Travel and Storage Case for Nintendo Switch - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072C9BVTW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ePpaCbSBT7C1S

And one for the switch in handheld mode. I use both quite frequently:

Pro controller - easier to play games in docked mode than the joycons.

Smash is out next Friday, but it looks like the best game of the year material.

Pokémon Let’s Go is a spin off, remake of yellow version, but it is a great game. Maybe not $60 great for gameplay, but for nostalgia. I’d say a fair price is around $40.

Games suggested:

Must Play Exclusives:

Zelda: BOTW (10/10) little bit of a learning curve, but open world game with 100+ hours of content

Super Mario Odyssey (9.5/10) very laid back and at times almost too easy, but overall very fun and creative. 30 hours of content

—————

Exclusives W/ Friends or Online:

Mario Kart 8 (9/10)

Super Mario Party Switch (8.5/10)

—————

Other Top Tier Exclusives:

Splatoon (8.5/10) (may be stressful online, but awesome game for both online play and “salmon runs”)

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (8.5/10) (tough game but such awesome level design, music; this game can become frustrating)

Mario Rabbids (8.5/10) (fun game, again, can become frustrating as it is a strategy, turn based game with Nintendo characters)

Pokémon Let’s Go (8.5/10) (fun game, super nostalgic trip back to the past of Pokémon origins but now in 3D with alolan forms)

We still don’t know about Super Smash Bros Ulitmate, but I can’t imagine it won’t be a 9 or 9.5 out of 10.

Golf story is the next exclusive game I’ll be getting some time down the road, very hit or miss with people however.

Disclaimer: I don’t really get non exclusives on switch, as I can get them on PC for cheap 9/10 times (except red dead). Also, I do not care for JRPG’s, so I can’t comment on Xenoblade, Octopath, Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter etc.

As others have pointed out, indies are great for the Switch, not too demanding to require further CPU or GPU Power to hinder gameplay, but you will pay the “Nintendo tax”. This is that Nintendo hardly has sales on games. But the point of the Switch is gaming on the go, so it’s a good trade off. If that’s not your reasoning, then stick with indies on stronger consoles or PC.

Joycons are not too small, I would pair them with these if you want to use them single player (like Mario kart or Mario party):

Definitely a Screen Protector

A Travelling Case would be nice.

I also added Dr Scholls Moleskin to the front of my dock to reduce the risk of scratching the screen protector. (Two small strips on the parts inside the dock that are raised.)

A Memory Card also helps for the digital only games.

What color Switch did you get? I got the grey switch then bought a pair of Red Joycons and another pair of Blue Joycons. So in total I have a grey, red, and blue L Joycon and a grey, red, and blue R Joycon.

If you got the grey switch and then buy the [two color Joycon packs] (https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Joy-Con-Neon-Neon-Blue/dp/B01N6QJ58Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1493753597&sr=8-2&keywords=blue+joycons) then you won't be able to get one of each color for L/R without over paying. This is because the [two color Joycon packs] (https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Joy-Con-Neon-Neon-Blue/dp/B01N6QJ58Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1493753597&sr=8-2&keywords=blue+joycons) are always Red L and Blue R.

If you bought a neon switch, then buy the [two color Joycon pack] (https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Joy-Con-Neon-Neon-Blue/dp/B01N6QJ58Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1493753597&sr=8-2&keywords=blue+joycons) and a pair of Grey Joycons for all combinations.

Also, don't buy Joycons on Amazon, they are stupid expensive right now.

I don't have a pro controller yet, but people seem to love it.

Games:

Zelda = Must Buy

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe = Must Buy

1-2 Switch = Great for parties/friends

Snipperclips = Great for people who don't play games often (girlfriends/parents/kids). Secret here is to not explain how to play/what to do and let them have fun and try to figure out the puzzles on their own. Act like a support character and you'll have a blast watching them.

Binding of Isaac = I love this game, but put countless hours on the PC version. Mature themes

Super Bomberman R = Classic mode with easy CPUs is fun for roommates. I haven't played through the adventure mode yet.

Wonderboy = Cute/Fun side scroller.

Has Been Heroes = I don't have this yet, apparently very difficult.


Other notes:

I started collecting amiibos after getting a switch (Be very careful, it's easy to get addicted and drop a ton of money here).

I got a Joycon charging dock since the only way to charge extra pairs of Joycons without the Joycon charging dockis to rotate them in and out of the switch while it charges/docked.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

PS I love the Switch so much. It's definitely my favorite console ever.

u/Thranx · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Hey Dad, also a Dad. I got a switch for each of my boys (9 year old and 6 year old). They love them. Here's some guidance.

Custom units/skins don't matter. Just buy whatever package has the joycon colors you think he/she'd like.

Mario Odyssey is excellent. Mario Party is just alright. Odyssey is a great 3D platformer ala Mario 64. Or... if you're REALLY that deeply ignorant of anything non-playstation... a better Crash Bandicoot. :D Mario Party is a mini-games ... game. It's just ok. Gets alot of love, but IMO, boring quickly... didn't last too long for the kids' entertainment either.

Zelda is a must buy. It is fantastic. Unless your dude/dudette is pretty young, do it. Also... clock yourself some gametime there... we're talking, Horizon Zero Dawn with a lighter atmosphere and a little less quicktime... but maybe better.

Smash is Smash.

No clue no One's Justice.

Pikachu should be alright... I'd only recommend that if he/she's already a Pokemon fan. If not, get the real full fledged Pokemon a year from now.

Added recommendation... StarLink is a fun open world exploration game that isn't super difficult and doesn't take tself too seriously. Stereotyping a bit here but, if your kid's a 8-12 year old boy, it's pretty tough to beat flying around with space ships and exploring planets and shooting bad guys. You can safely ingnore the additional toys, or get into it. They actually did a great job of allowing a pretty cheap digital purchase of all the toys, and you don't even have to do that... you can unlock pretty much everything in-game.

Anyhoo... good luck. Spend some time yourself on Breath of the Wild. You won't regret it.

OH! And buy this case: https://www.amazon.com/NINTENDO-SWITCH-DELUXE-TRAVEL-CASE-MULTI-GAME/dp/B01MY9JB2U/ Available iin multiple styles. Great case, most of the other really suck. Those ones are very well made.

u/JnRx03 · 1 pointr/ShouldIbuythisgame

As someone who's owned a Switch since launch, I say the joycon and comfort grip are fine i'll try to put this in sections.

Controller: You can try the pro controller, but in my experience with the two i've bought, I've found that the left stick if you flick it on direction it bounces back the other direction, you may not find this to be an issue right away, but it caused a lot of issues for me when playing Sonic Mania and other games that require quick stick movement.

Cases: If you can get your hand on the Zelda Special Edition case that'd be great, but otherwise [This](https://www.amazon.com/TAKECASE-Nintendo-Switch-Case-Microfiber-Guarantee /dp/B06XYPPJ6M/ref=pd_cp_63_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=RBHQCTFZSKGBBVMX8GZ2) and This seem to be pretty good hefty cases.

Also This protective slim case should serve as nice armor to protect it from scratches.

Games: Personally i'd reccomend, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 (my fav), Sonic Mania, Mario Kart 8, Snipperclips (if you have someone to play with), these are all games I mostly enjoy, i'd recommend ARMS as well, but i found the game more frustrating than fun.


Screen Protector: This one shall do they're all mostly the same, just different price points and popularity, the on difference between some is tempered glass vs plastic.

I say always go with Tempered glass, unless you prefer the plastic for one reason or another

u/Saxophobe · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Similar to you, but for the carrying case there is a much better one. (Nintendo's own one is too soft, so the thumb-sticks are a bit vulnerable in there from getting bashed). While I love the stand feature on it, I hardly ever use that, as there are better ways of doing it where you can access the cable from underneath, like you can with the separate foldaway stands. Also, there's not much room in Nintendo's case to carry any extra stuff (so is no good for the stand, and not even enough room to carry so much as a charging cable).

I've bought and tried quite a few different pouch and accessory combinations in order to solve this, and the best case so far out of all of them is the Orzly Hard Pouch Carrying Case (as there's tones of extra joy-con room aswell as room for lots of extra stuff like cables, games, battery pack, etc, aswell as my foldaway stand).

It's also padded extremely well on the inside whilst being a hard shell on the outside. Yet they've done all that whilst doing an exceptionally good job of being the most space conscious on the inside compared to all the other ones I've used, whilst also not making it too big on the outside.

And the best foldaway stand by far is this one...

BEST STAND:

https://www.amazon.com/Multi-Angle-Nintendo-Switch-Lamicall-Playstand/dp/B01LZAYH58

So the best case for it to fit in with the switch and everything else inside that I use 100% of the time is this one...

u/ShaneHaleyPhoto · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Along with what Joshua said, I'm a huge fan of Death Squared and Human Fall Flat. I play with friends and we have a blast, we love the humor of the games and are always laughing at what everyone's doing in the games. Puyo Puyo Tetris is a great single or multiplayer puzzle game. Astro Bears Party is a quick, fun multiplayer game, I picked mine up on sale for under a dollar. All offline.

Crash Bandicoot is a difficult 2.5D platformer, if you haven't played and are into that. I like it, some levels do get a bit frustrating. Snake Pass is one of my favorite games, you control a snake and it very much relies on weird controls and puzzles you have to figure out, based on the weird controls. If you like Portal, you'll love Chromagun. It's like Portal but with colors. Celeste is a death-happy, 2D platformer with the difficulty set on hard. If you want a challenge, Celeste is your game. All offline, all single player.

Online - I just started playing Fortnite and Rocket League, both seem pretty fun so far. Fortnite is a free download, too!

I travel a lot and LOVE this case. It's super small, it has 8 game pouches(and you can probably double up games in each pouch
too), hardshell, water resistant, looks nice and sleek, and I feel safe with it. I'm also just not an accessory person though -- I have just my switch, 3 physical games, thumb grips(like these)(totally unnecessary, just a personal preference), a screen protector(I've heard putting the switch in/out of the dock can scratch the screen), and that case. The case also came with an accessories pouch, but I've never used it.

u/happygodavid · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Awesome! Congrats! You'll love it.

A few things I'm glad I got: glass screen protector.

Edit: hit the send button accidentally. :)

I returned THREE cases I didn't like for various reasons, but I just got the Switch Takecase on Amazon after loving their 3ds case, and I couldn't be happier. Because it's a new product, it's cheap (for now; jump on the deal they've got), and there aren't as many reviews, but I can't recommend it highly enough. Room for a charger and games, solid construction, etc.

The JoyCon with grip (or without) are fantastic, and you'll be just fine without a Pro Controller. But when it's in your budget, get one. It's fantastic. Again, the JoyCon are great.

Shovel Knight!! Snipperclips!! And yes, it looks like Nintendo will be pulling a ton of other indies into the platform.

Enjoy your Switch!

u/ikilledschrodiescat · 1 pointr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Hey!

> Does your boyfriend enjoy buying physical copies of the games or are electronic copies fine?

Personally, I buy electronic versions for environmental reasons and so I have a 128GB microSD card. You can probably get a good deal on that given Black Friday. If you don’t have environmental reservations, I would say go with physical copies and a 32 or 64GB card because your bf can sell the game if he’s done with it. You can’t return electronic copies or sell them, so you’re kinda stuck with them forever.

> Switch V1 or V2?

Tbh, I wouldn’t recommend getting the second Switch only for the fact that you cannot remove the controllers. Having V1 off the bat allows your bf to pop the controllers off for 2 player games, the Switch Lite or V2 doesn’t allow that... and it’s something to consider imo. To me, Nintendo is all about playing with friends so I definitely enjoy being able to share immediately. This also removes the need for buying a separate controller.

> Games?

Classic many player games are Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, closely followed by Mario Party. However, if your bf enjoys single player games, Zelda Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey are fantastic.

If you also wanna join in and play with him, I would suggest Overcooked 1 and 2. They’re amazing games and I know many nongamers that got hooked on these two games.

> Accessories?

I recommend getting a bag. You can buy something like this. It’s slim and perfect for carrying the Switch in his backpack.

If you have any questions, I got you! ;)

u/Allaakmar · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Here’s my loadout:

First, I like being able to play in tabletop mode as I like having the joycons removed and separated while I play on the go, I carry the straps (though I removed the strap part so it’s just a way to add extra width to the joycons) and this tablet stand because I do like the normal one.

Next up, I use a portable USB-C charger with a PD port on it. I used to use a third party Switch charger since I’m not using it to dock, but I like having the option to charge my phone as well.

Finally, I use a case to carry everything in. The normal slim ones definitely aren’t enough, so I use one like this that fits everything so I can have everything on the go in a compact space.

TLDR: I keep a tablet stand, joycon straps, and a portable charger in a large case for when I’m on the go with my Switch. None of these are must haves, but I enjoy them all.

P.S.
One ESSENTIAL accessory is a screen protector. I got a small scratch on my bezel from my dock and it still bugs me I didn’t get a screen protector immediately. It baffles me that there’d be a design flaw like that, but it happens.

Finally, a lot of people like the Satisfye grips. While I’ve never found them necessary, a lot of people have. It would also be worth getting the bundle with the carrying case since it wouldn’t fit in a normal one.

Hope this helps or gives you some ideas of what you might want.

u/Slamdunkin48 · 3 pointsr/Switch

The switch definitely has the possibility for many accessories. I'll link all the stuff I've bought at the end because I would recommend all of them

There is built in storage but not enough. I will recommend any micro SD card that's either 64 or 128 gb depending on how many games you plan on downloading. If you're going mostly mobile eshop games would definitely be more convenient.

As for other items, I love my pro controller but its not a necessity. I also only use it at home so it might not be for you.

You need a case for it, no two ways about it. The good news is that they are pretty cheap. There's cases that just carry the console, that carry the console and some extras, and that carry pretty much everything you could want to carry. Unless you're taking the dock often, I would just suggest a case with some extra storage.

I'd suggest a battery bank. There are a million options out there, and most of it has to do with cost. Just buy a size you like from a trusted brand like anker, ravpower, or aukey.

You also need a screen protector, because the plastic screen is not exactly durable. Anything works, but I would recommend tempered glass.

u/Smitty2017 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

This one is the one i use now and the best one I found after trying several.
It’s extremely slim and lightweight, has a soft screen protector tab inside (with places to store game cards), but no b.s. like straps or anything to stop you from getting your switch out nice and easy. It’s a nice prime knit fabric with hardened edges and corners for protection.

You really should take a look; I love it and I throw my switch in this case and take my switch to the office everyday to play. Really easy to put away and pull out, plenty of protection, super slim.

That's definitely fair xD my younger cousins who come over for holidays are teenagers now, but back like 5 years ago I probably wouldn't have trusted them either.

I'm fond of this case: https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Traveler-Deluxe-Travel-Breath/dp/B01N5T26EP/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1511991163&sr=8-5&keywords=rds+switch+case

It comes in several colors/styles, but as someone who buys a fair amount of physical games, I love the 2 game card cases that fit into the bottom. The mesh zipper pouch that sits over the screen of the console when inside isn't good for much (might fit like a USB cable, or the individual joycon grips in it), but otherwise it houses the console and up to 8 extra games comfortably which takes care of my portable needs. I'll just toss a charging cable and pro controller if needed into the same pouch of my bag and call it a day when leaving to hang out with people.

u/imest58 · 0 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

#1 Suggestion, buy your girlfriend her own switch. This will give you 2 more Joycons for 4 player action in Mario Party. Too many great games to share one console.

#2 Buy a pro controller, get one that is a special edition (Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Smash Bros., etc.) as the original has D Pad issues.

#3 Buy Physical copies of games when available, or if you have to buy digital wait for a sale.

#4 Register with my.nintendo.com and start earning gold coins. These gold coins can be used to get discount on digital games.

#5 Xenoblade Chronicles 2 <- A must!

#6 DeadCells if you are a rouge/metrovania lover.

#7 Purchase a carrying case protection

#8 Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is a great game, but you need the Amiibos to get exclusive gear. Get these NFC to get the full experience and save you cash!

There is always more info that can be helpful, but the best advise is to enjoy the system the way you want and not what anyone else says. GLHF!

With screen protectors you really want to go with tempered glass. Starter kits are a nice deal, but you do get what you pay for when it comes to screen protectors; such is life.

For a screen protector, I along with the rest of Reddit it seems have settled upon this screen protector as being the absolute best. I even had Best Buy Geek Squad install it to virtually guarantee proper installation, and it looks absolutely fantastic. I had the chance to play for a few weeks without it and personally think it actually makes the screen look better.

For a case I would go the RDS Industries route and get either this or even this larger case that can fit all the related Switch accessories.

u/roytoy1678 · 0 pointsr/nintendo

Things that you will require:




Screen protector. The switch has a plastic screen. It will scratch incredibly easily. Don't buy the el cheapo film style protectors. Get a glass screen protector. You can get a two pack of them on amazon for under 10 bucks. Vastly superior to film screen protectors.

Carrying case. IMO, there are two non negotiable things a switch case needs. First, it needs good rigidity. With the DS line, you could get away with a soft case. The clamshell design is fairly impervious to damage in any kind of case. Not so with the switch. You want something that is hard, so it will resist squishing in a backpack, or whatever. It needs to hold the switch in place inside the case rattling around will damage the device over time.

The second thing it absolutely needs is molded cutouts behind where the triggers are. A case that's flat under the switch will press on the triggers when it's in there, and wear it out. You will get many suggestions. Most of them are badly designed or way overpriced. This is the best case for the money. It's super solid, holds 8 games, secures the unit, and has the cutouts.

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Game-Traveler-Deluxe-Travel/dp/B01MY9JB2U

You'll also want a micro SD. If you're gonna buy physical games, a 32 or 64 should be fine. If you're buying digital, get the biggest card you can afford.


Things you probably want



Buy a good usb-c cable. I recommend Anker brand. Cheap cords are a crapshoot. Not all are standard compliant, and can damage your device

Thumbstick caps. The stick caps as is are frankly shit. I bought a pack of rubber caps for like 4 bucks 100% improvement.

If you're planning to play a lot of Mariokart, get the plastic wheels. They're cheap, and they're cool.

If you want an external controller, I'd advise not buying the official pro controller. 8bitdo.com is currently making a switch compatible controller with gyro, rumble, and usb-c charging. It will be out before the holidays. You can get one of their current controllers for like 40 bucks. It lacks rumble or gyro, but it's a great alternative for games that don't need those. A little small though. The upcoming SNES 30 Pro model looks awesome. I'd advise you to wait for it to drop and check out reviews. The nintendo pro controller is badly designed and super overpriced.

And a plastic folding tablet stand is very useful for tabletop mode. I use one all the time.

BotW is FANTASTIC!! It's incredibly immersive and looks gorgeous! There's a ton of things to do, and unlike some games with that option, I never get the feeling of obligation to do the side stuff. You WANT to go do it.

Now for the Switch. First things first, order a screen protector. The thing isto be a portable game system, so you'll want to take it places without worrying about meant damage. I didn't, and now have a small scratch on the screen (possibly from the dock, probably from carrying it in a bag with a bunch of other stuff). A tempered glass screen protector will prevent that. I'd also recommend a carrying case although until they get a bunch of games released on cart, that's not so much of a necessity.

My Switch performs WONDERFULLY as a portable system. If still looks fantastic, and I get comparable play time to a 3DS (my standard for portable battery life). BotW and the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire both looked fantastic on the big screen in docked mode. I have noticed some frame lag here and there on BotW, but it's never had much impact on my play experience. Usually I only see it during "busy" times on screen (lots of trees & tall grass during heavy particulate weather effects such as a rain storm), and the recent update smoothed that out nicely.

The Switch also charges pretty quickly using it's charger (or a comparable power output charger). I have a 2A charger for cell phones in me car and USB C cable and it will keep it charged while playing on road trips (NOTE: it does not recharge it while playing, it just keeps the battery where it's at when you plug it in.)

Overall, BotW and the Switch are a definite recommend for purchase.

Super heavy duty, comes with a mesh bag that has two Micro SD card holders and two game holders that each hold 4 cartridges each. It can also carry the switch, dock, cables, joycon grip, and anything else you want to throw in there. You can usually find it at target or Best Buy for ~$30 USD. As for controllers... joy cons are easy to order online through Nintendo or you can get them at Target/Walmart or anywhere that has a video game section. As for holding case, I have this heavy duty grip case. I have dropped my switch before and it’s been perfectly fine with this thing on, so I definitely recommend it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirect/picassoRedirect.html/ref=pa_sp_btf_aps_sr_pg1_2?ie=UTF8&adId=A0148261R5SAG6IFJ04X&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMumba-Nintendo-Switch-Rubberized-release%2Fdp%2FB071ZRM6C1%2Fref%3Dsr_1_19_sspa%2F145-9781408-3087933%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1519561659%26sr%3D8-19-spons%26keywords%3Dnintendo%2Bswitch%2Bcase%26psc%3D1%26smid%3DA1D6JCE5X9R16U&qualifier=1519561659&id=8600541413204391&widgetName=sp_btf
Also, a screen protector is recommended to prevent your screen getting scratched when you dock the console.

Don’t get too addicted to BOTW! XD

Edit: Also, all you have to do to charge your controllers is connect them to the switch while it’s docked.

u/aparmar84 · 3 pointsr/graphic_design

When I got my Pantone swatch books, they came in a plastic carry case/ box. I just transport them in that when I need to.

I have also seen seen people keep them in black Pantone book sleeves, but I can't find them online anywhere.

If you can't find something actually meant for them, a third party Nintendo switch case might work pretty well, and they are pretty cheap.

Hope you find something. Good luck.

u/Igno_ · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

There are only a few updates right out of the box, and they dont' take long at all. I didn't get my console on a big holiday, however, so depending on how many people are trying to connect to Nintendo's servers on Christmas, it might take significantly longer.

A screen protector is very nice to have. I haven't got one myself, but I plan on getting one. Until then, I'm just very careful when docking/undocking my console.

For accessories, it depends. If you travel a lot or on a regular basis, a traveling case is definitely worth it. I got this one, and it's great. It's a tad bigger than the one found on Nintendo's website (even though it is an official Nintendo product), and comes with two four-cartridge cases and two SD card cases.
Depending on what games he has, your son might also want a pro controller. I got the $70 one here, but there is a cheaper $30 option if you really want it (but personally I wouldn't recommend it). I primarily use my pro controller for MK8D and Splatoon 2.
The last major accessory you might want is an SD card. Depending on how many games he wants to download as opposed to using a physical copy, an SD card might be worth it. I think the best option is a microSDXC UHS-I card, but I don't remember. The size depends on how much money you can spend and how many games you wanna download. I wouldn't really go for anything below 64GB, but that's just me.

u/Veetea · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Ha, a couple of us must've ordered from the same production run -- I also received my pouch today, and was going to take some pictures till the OP beat me to it.

 

Though I already have this PDP case, I impulse ordered Waterfield's Switch pouch as soon as I saw a photo. I know folks gravitate toward the City Slicker from Waterfield, but I prefer something slimmer -- I don't need protection from dropping it on the ground, just a stylish, sturdy case to carry the thing around with.

 

And that's exactly what this case is. Especially in waxed canvas, it's just a beauty. I hardly adds much size to the Switch, though the pocket gives enough room for two extra Joy-Con, straps, cables, games or what have you. Really impressed by the little touches, like the fur-like main compartment lining, and the yellow textured fabric inside the accessories pocket. Granted, this thing is pricey -- in comparison, the PDP case was low-priced and totally serviceable, but feels definitively cheap in person (and doesn't look quite as nice as it does in photos).

 

Between this and the awesome industrial design of the Switch itself, being a nerd at the airport looks a whole lot slicker than it used to. Really glad that exclusively ugly electronics accessories seem to be a thing of the past.

Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe System Case https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N23OP50?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

I have this one, which is very similar to the one posted above. I have to say i love it but it doesnt fit the procontroller very well but can fit the joy con grip with a set of joy con installed perfectly. The one the other poster posted above seems to be a bit bigger but soles the controller issue

u/McLovin_616 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY9JB2U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZgAOBb4YHCXS5

This one will not hold your charger, but I highly recommend it because it is a hard case. People have had issues with their switch turning on in their cases and overheating because buttons get pressed and turn on the system. This one keeps the system totally secure and prevents that from happening. It is super durable and nice looking as well. It holds 8 games plus whichever one is in your system. There is a soft flap that protects the screen and it has a zipper enclosure to fit earphones or a few more carts.

u/TopNerdJR · 50 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hi Dad, Dad, Dad, and Dad. Dad here also. The screen protector I agree is a must have. Mario party and Mario cart are a must for Family fun. I completely agree. BOTW could be to complicated for him but then again, it could not be. Its Fun and I think he could grow into it.

Here is the case I use. It fits everything really well and I am super happy with it:

https://www.amazon.com/NINTENDO-SWITCH-DELUXE-SECURELY-COMPLETE-INCLUDING/dp/B01N23OP50/ref=sr_1_12?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1541442745&sr=1-12&keywords=Switch+Case

​

I use this when I travel on The plane also. It fits perfectly over the handle of my suitcase.

​

u/Lavidon · 2 pointsr/consoledeals

In my opinion, neither the Kingtop nor this Orly case are worth it. I had a case just like these, one that uses two bands to hold down the Switch. It is secure, but it also makes putting in the Switch and taking it out is super annoying.

I highly recommend these: either this Butterfox case or this RDS case. They're both high quality, easy to use, and secure. I had the RDS one first but decided to get the Butterfox one because I like the little pockets for holding Switch games. Both are good tho.

u/grymmhain · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Skull and co gripcase https://www.amazon.com/Skull-Co-GripCase-Set-Comfortable/dp/B078WH32Y7

Yeah price wise it’s steep if you only want the carrying case but the gripcase is easy to slip off and on your switch if it won’t dock for you.

The other case https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Game-Traveler-Deluxe-System/dp/B01N23OP50


Though I may snag https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Game-Traveler-Deluxe-System/dp/B01N23OP50 at some point since it would fit the pro controller and a joy con grip.

Of course the empty grips can really be packed in anything. They won’t break without a good deal of force.

Probably comes down to how often you would use the joy cons in their grip vs just using the switch in hand held mode.

u/justavault · 1 pointr/gaming

> Look online at a store nintendo DOES NOT sell SD cards. They miiight license some third party ones I suppose but why would they prevent another company from selling SD cards they've verified work with their system?

It is a SD card, chief. There exists no "incompatible". It's just a label to rip off customers who do not have the technical knowledge to realize that any SD card is fuckin the same if the speed class matches, no matter the label you put on. A class 6 SD card is the same, no matter if you pay 30 bucks on top because there is a Nintendo label on it.


>Also dude just because a copper spike aggressively scratching a screen will scratch it doesn't mean a round fucking penny will. It's not a scratch off lottery it's a fucking screen. As the video says plastic is a better choice because it avoids cracking which is way more likely than scratching given the usage.

What did I expect? Of course, a fanboy will react with denial of reality - the tester must have "aggressively tried to scratch it" - subjectivity is to be expected by any opponent of my fanboyism.

A penny is pretty sharp on the edge unless it has seen some decades and it was just an example for an everyday item that can easily scratch the device's screen, because it is so soft. You know, to do the transfer of using exemplary items in a rethorical way is kind of expected in a conversation.

There are a multitude of items that will scratch a 3moh screen in your pocket. Like say a metal pen thrown into your backpack, or keys in your purse. Man even a knob could potentially do this if the angle is right.

> As the video says plastic is a better choice because it avoids cracking which is way more likely than scratching given the usage.

Jerry is making a quick assumption, not a sufficiently profound argument here. The Switch is not really shock resistant considering its built and especially compared to gorilla glass 5+, but I expect you to deny this without me linking another video that would show this. (unless me, you, the fanboy, does not have the obligation to proof your points right? You just need to say "no" and all is right)

Plastic does in no way "avoid" cracking, chief. You live in a very awesome world if that does or you should immediately inform Apple about this insight.

>Oh and there are third party cases along with some very small effective cases from Nintendo I'm not sure what you're going on about with cases.

Why don't you link me those cases? And with case I mean a wrap, not a pouch/bag. Instead, you typically fanboying and simply "mentioning it" without linking further proof.

But, I made the research for you. The smallest bag I found on amazon is this. Though, the argument remains, put in their, that thing is not much more portable than a PS4 slim as both require a bag unless you really walk around with "just" a Swatch in your hands, because this does not fit in your pockets... which would be a very funny picture.

With cases we are more talking something like this - you know something that adds protection without adding a lot of bulge - this does not exist because, as aforementioned the used plastic will melt everything away.

So, again, Nintendo is ripping you off with every little Nintendo sticker they put on anywhere including the switch itself. It is a sub par piece of hardware and we are not talking about the games, just about the Nintendo management responsible for the business decisions and those exude greed.

u/MentalPackage · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Get him a screen protector, any that say they are "tempered glass" should be good.

​

Gte him a carrying case, I've got this one, it's good enough and portable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MS7AI9G/

​

Get him the 2 games you know he wants, then get him a gift $50 (or higher) eShop card if you don't mind spending the money.

​

If you want to really impress, and you haven't gone broke yet, get him a Pro Controller as well, you guys can play together more comfortably too, you with the two joycons, him with his pro controller https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Pro-Controller/dp/B01NAWKYZ0/

​

Oooh, and a Micro SD card, at LEAST 128GB ($20) or higher https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-400GB-microSDXC-Memory-Adapter/dp/B073JYC4XM/

​

Let him open it first, and run the updates and set it all up, to me, and as a result, my kids too, it's part of the fun of getting a new electronic toy.

u/JackSparrowUSA · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The only must haves are probably a screen protector and carrying case. These are good:

Case: https://www.amazon.com/ButterFox-Switch-Carrying-Cartridge-Holders/dp/B06WGSKRKL

Screen Protector: https://www.amazon.com/amFilm-Tempered-Screen-Protector-Nintendo/dp/B01N3ASPNV

Nice to Haves:
Micro SDXC Card if you plan to do a fair amount of digital games. The internal storage should last you a good bit unless you go 100% digital. If you're 100% physical type of person then you won't need an SD for a long while.

I'd give the joycons in the grip (and separated, no grip) a fair shot for a couple of weeks. If you would like improved comfort, the pro controller is excellent.

Almost all games allow for 2 player with each player using a 1 joycon. So it really depends what you want to spend. If you want more than that, then your decision is Pro Controller, extra joycons, or both.

u/jfriend33 · 1 pointr/Switch

Yes

This is what I got: homase Nintendo Switch Hard Back Case Cover Anti-Scratch Transparent Crystal Protector Shock https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071VHQ9KW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_RvEszbVT1GN2T

No issues, easy to remove for docking. Got this too: amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N3ASPNV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_3wEszbDD7RE2K

PowerA Switch Everywhere Messenger Bag https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N22YAIP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_CxEszbS7T1JSP

First screen protector that installed with ease, better than icarez. Do it in a humid bathroom. And messenger bag I didn't want but knew I'd be frequently taking my system solo and sometimes the dock to relatives so it was a good price, $30 like new. It was sealed!

Anyway if you frequently go from docked to not, it all depends on your controller arrangement. If you can leave the stock joycons on its not time consuming to take off the tablet clear protector. But daily removal and installation of controllers for a grip would get annoying?

I'm hunting for either a pro controller from colorware or a rubber cover not black for neon joycons on stock comfort grip. Good luck!

u/EpicCakes · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just to add on, if you travel a lot or plan on taking it on the go, a case would be a good investment. Personally, this case has worked great for me https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Game-Traveler-Deluxe-Travel/dp/B01MY9JB2U/ref=sr_1_3?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1498246383&sr=1-3&keywords=switch+case . Also congrats on winning a Switch that's pretty awesome.

u/Gariond · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hey /r/NintendoSwitch, I've been using a packing cube for traveling with my switch, and wanted to share how well it's worked for me. I keep most of this stuff together as a "go bag" and it's really helped keep all my stuff organized. It has made it really easy to just grab this and go, I highly recommend.

With it I've been able to pack all of this into a single pack, about 3/4ths the size of a shoebox:

  • My Nintendo Switch (w/ Joy-Con attached)
  • A Small Switch Case
  • Three additional pairs of Joy-Con
  • Two Pro Controllers
  • Two of extra Joy-Con straps (for set attached to Switch)
  • Nintendo Switch Dock Set (TV dock, power cable, usb c-to a charging cable)
  • HDMI cable

    I photoshopped out the label from the brand for the cube, because I didn't want this to look like hailcorporate material (I put a link below). This cube is approx 11" x 7" x 5" ( 28 x 18 x 13 cm) and ends up fitting all of this snugly, so I'd recommend trying similar dimensions if you give it a shot. It actually fits so perfectly that I have barely any shifting of the contents. I also find that it doesn't put any strain on my switch itself, however it's typically not in the bag. This one has loops on the sides, so I used cable ties to keep the cords organized, an added bonus.

    The cube is a Patagonia "Black Hole Cube 6-L", but any other brand's cube of similar size would probably work out fine. Being able to include a case was a must, the Nintendo Switch Premium Travel Case for Console and Games" by PDP is a *perfect* fit, however it's not my preferred case.

    It's been a really nice travel option for me, so I figured I'd share.
u/Galen640 · 10 pointsr/Switch

First of all: Screen Protector. Once it's on you never notice it, doesn't hurt to get that extra safety!

I've bought 10 games so far, and I'd say get all of these because I have enjoyed them. BOTW, Splatoon 2, Sonic Mania, Rayman Legends, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (assuming you like DBZ,) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokken Tournament DX, Street Fighter 2 Ultra, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Yooka Laylee.

If I had to pick 3 for you to get to start out then I would pick Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I think that's enough variety to keep you busy for awhile.

A carrying is always a good thing, I'd recommend This case because it's the one I use and does its job.

Accessory wise I have joycon grips which are AMAZING when playing with one joycon.

Also, the grip it comes with is trash. Get the Power A Grip it feels A LOT better in your hands.

As for SD Cards, it depends. I have a 32GB SD card. I mainly buy physical games, The extra space is for screenshots and videos, and download only games, like Sonic Mania, Yooka Laylee, etc. If you're going for digital only then get a 256GB. Sure you won't use a ton of space now, but you might a few years down the line. Also, do NOT get the official Nintendo ones. They are a RIP-OFF! Here are some nice alternatives that will get the job done for A LOT cheaper: 32 GB 64 GB 128 GB and finally 256 GB

If you have any other questions feel free to ask OP, and other (potential) switch owners!

Quick edit: sorry that some links won't be put with the text, no idea what the issue is

u/queuebitt · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Those kind of products are more about convenience than being the best option.

You definitely want a screen protector. The amFilm 2-pack is considered the best around here.

You also want a carrying case. I recommend either the Hestia Goods or Butterfox models. I have the former and love it. The later is the most recommended around Reddit.

Between the screen protector and case from Amazon you're at the same $20 as the starter kit. So you can either get two high quality items, or more lower (but doable) quality items.

u/leialeilani · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I’ve got the Sheikah Eye traveler case in blue. It holds the Switch plus joy cons (has indentations for the back of the joy cons to rest in too), 8 game carts (or 6 plus 2 micro SD cards), and the top has enough room for my earbuds and probably a small battery and charging cable too. It’s really cute and sturdy, and I’m pretty happy with it.

u/Eponine05 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

So, I've had a few cases by now, but usually I find when I want to go out with my Switch, I just need the console itself and a couple games at most.

Therefore I've fallen in love with this Tomtoc Slim Hardshell Case.

It's really perfect and form fitting, super tiny, tough and looks good. 5/5.

u/HorizonZeroD · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got one made by Zadii that seems like pretty good quality If you're looking for a hard travel case that has room for your dock and a pro controller in addition to the seperate joycon controller plus console itself. Plus it has a holder for 21 cartridges and still has some room for something to be put in the mesh pocket that lines the lid.
I haven't actually had a chance to travel extensively with it yet, but my experience with day to day use like if I want to take it into work to played docked on the break room TV is pretty good so far.

u/daxattax · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Hey I am looking for a new travel bag for my switch and accessories. I currently have carry bag, and this body case. I like this setup as often when I am away from home, I play my switch handheld in the bed. Once I am done, I like putting back in the body case on the night stand or use the case for when I am just moving around a house/room. The carry bag worked cause it held the switch in the case, pro controller, power cord, and the joycons edges, all while being easy to carry or small enough to fit into a small duffel bag.

​

However, more and more of late I keep finding myself wishing that I brought the dock too and/or the joycon grip. There is no room in the carry bag and I don't like putting the dock in the duffel as I fear it getting crunched accidentally. Anybody recommend a bag that can hold the switch in the body case, while having room for the pro controller (and joycon grip if possible but not needed), dock, power adapter, and HDMI cable securely and safely for the devices without being the size of a messenger bag? If I need another case for the switch handheld itself, that's fine, I just prefer the harder shelled ones. Really if my current bag was just a couple inches thicker to hold the dock too it would be perfect, but it cannot.

​

Thank you!

u/Ice_Scream_Cake · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Here you are friend! It's pretty basic but I actually love it. It's a sort of harder shell and keeps the Switch pretty secured. The little mini cases are underneath where the Switch sits.

u/GooseRider960 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Reposting this because it got buried in the last thread.

I need help on deciding a case. I've narrowed it down to four, but I suppose if none of them are great, I could go for a fifth option.

Protection is a big thing here, so if any of these are flimsy, let me know.

PDP Nintendo Switch Premium Console Case

RDS Industries, Inc Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe System Case

Orzly Carry Case for Nintendo Switch

2017 Switch Hard Shell Carry Case

While I like the portability the smaller ones have, the big one being able to carry everything is a big bonus. Protection is a huge factor too.

u/Forrester777 · 1 pointr/AmiiboCanada

I got:

Grey Switch console

4 Pro Controllers

Extra set of Joy-Cons (Neon Red/Neon Blue)

Neon Blue/Neon Red Joy-Con Straps

Extra AC Adapter

Joy-Con Charging Grip

Official Case & Screen Protector

2 X HORI Play Stand (Strongly recommend this or another stand for Tabletop mode) - Not sure how we got 2 when we only paid for 1 as far as I know.

PowerA Joy-Con Charger (Holds 4 Joy-Cons) - Got it for $26.00 off Amazon when the price was that low.

Casebase and Orzly Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

HORI Game Card (24) Case (Free from Amazon after credits)

PowerA Everywhere Messenger Bag for Switch - Got this for $29.09 thanks to a credit and it was listed much cheaper than it is now.


We definitely overbought, haha. A lot of this stuff (Everything except one Pro Controller, The official Case/Screen Protector and one PlayStand is still completely sealed, haha)

I wanted to get all of the accessories out of the way, so I just have to save for games over the next few years.

u/Biggus_TM · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Ill build two routes handheld gaming and docked.

Docked

Switch - $300


Pro Controller -$65


Legend of Zelda BOTW - 44.99

Mario Kart 8 -$55

Total - $ 464.00

Handheld

Switch - $300

Legend of Zelda BOTW - 44.99

Nintendo Official Wall Charger - $28 (I choose this because I am very picky about power options with consoles and I know this will function)

Switch Case - $15 (This can be hit or miss a lot of people love butterfox but my two smelled like shit and opted for a better version, but for the price it is unbeatable, worth the risk of the smell)

Mario Kart 8 -$55

Total - $443

Games can be changed in and out but imo BOTW is the best game on the switch and Mario Kart 8 is loads of fun. I personally do not have a pro controller, mainly because I play strictly handheld but from what I have been told it is a must for docked gameplay.

Edit: In the future you are going to need a SD card. Especially if you are going the Digital route, again personally I prefer physical and the at of collecting the games but that is me.



u/martinskrtel · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

this guy goes through some thoughts! particularly about good SD cards and the Pro Controller and JoyCon accessories.

https://youtu.be/v8U58MaSu4U

i want to get a nice case, which is important when throwing it in your backpack. i have this for the 3DS XL and am looking forward to a nifty upgrade for the Switch. i don't even plan on buying physical games (if the price is right) so maybe one without game slots would be sleeker. this one looks quite good and comes with a screen protector, that's from Play Asia. as mentioned in the video i linked, a company called RDS Industries is also doing some good looking cases

1.) For scratch & bump protection I have the Nyko Thin Case on my Switch (available in different colors):

https://www.amazon.com/Nyko-Thin-Case-Dockable-Protective-Protector/dp/B072KHS2Q5/

https://www.amazon.com/Nyko-Thin-Case-Dockable-Protective-Protector/dp/B077ZKVRTR/

It's a thin plastic case around almost all of your Switch to protect it from scratches & bumps, and comes with a tempered glass screen protector. It's also dockable, and thin enough to fit in many carrying cases.

​

If you want a Switch case that matches your Pikachu/Eevee theme, they have some available now:

https://www.amazon.com/HORI-Nintendo-Switch-Pikachu-Protector/dp/B07HMTX414/

​

2.) For everyday travel protection, you can get a zippered carrying case. Since I love "slim", but didn't want to sacrifice protection, I bought the TomToc Slim Hard Case (available in different colors):

https://www.amazon.com/Compatible-Nintendo-Hardshell-Cartridges-Accessory-Sswitch/dp/B0769GCSMK/

https://www.amazon.com/Compatible-Nintendo-Original-Hardshell-Cartridges-Accessory/dp/B07C3Z8FFC/

When the Switch first came out, there weren't that many choices for "slim" hard cases, but now I see there are several similar-styled cases that also look pretty durable.

​

And again, if you want an everyday carrying case that is Pokemon-themed, they have some available now too:

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Pikachu-Officially-Licensed-Pokemon/dp/B07HBMKFVY/

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Pikachu-Officially-Licensed-Pokemon/dp/B07HBMZRJT/

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-System-Travel-Pikachu-500-110/dp/B07HM6Q8L9/

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Deluxe-Pikachu-Element-500-093/dp/B07GX89VWN/

... just google for more.

​

3.) If you travel long-distances or on lengthy trips, you may want to get a larger zippered hard case to fit your chargers, battery packs, extra joy-cons and/or pro controllers, HDMI dock, tons of games, etc. I don't have any one in particular to recommend, but in searching ebay it seems like there are hundreds of different cases available now (though not all of them look good).

u/MandomeLife · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Sure -- I'm using this case by RDS Industries paired with this screen protector. I bring along a USB adapter for charging my Switch when I'm working in my studio.

The case that I use is decent -- hard shell exterior, inner binding straps, and a near-edge fit keep the switch from jostling around. There's an inner mesh-bag for holding extra joycons and protected SD cards. The 2 game card holder cases that it comes with are questionable. They both hold four game cards each, and fit into crevices on one interior side of the Switch case. What doesn't work about them is that they often pop out of the crevices they were designed to fit and they never completely hold on to the game cards placed in them -- when you open the cases, the cards pop out of their place pretty easily. This got annoying to me as I took the Switch out of the case frequently, so I DIY'ed some cheap adhesives to both the outside and inside of the card holder cases, which ended up working very well. All in all, the case does its job -- I'd say that newer cases would probably be better, however, as companies have had the chance to iterate on the models they've developed. It also gets brownie points from saving my switch from a leaky bottle of water that I had in my backpack. Not sure if it's entirely waterproof, though.

u/thecoachfridge · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Get a screen protector for sure, I got this one. Then look into a case for gaming on the go. Butterfox makes an awesome carrying case and it holds 19 games.

For a first timer I would recommend to go physical. It means that you can trade things in if/when they get old to you and you will be downloading E-shop games for sure anyways.

As for games all I can say is do some research. We can all say to go get all of our favorites but you know your own taste best. I would watch some youtube videos to figure out which games are to your liking. That being said you need Zelda, Mario Odyssey, Hollow Knight, and Smash(coming soon).

u/Warskull · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Zelda is a no brainer. If he's never played Binding of Isaac go with that one. Honestly, I would stop there. Zelda will keep him busy for a long time.

I would strongly recommend an official Nintendo carrying case. He's going to want to travel with it at some point. Have a doctors appointment, got to go get your car inspected, or anything else where you have to sit and wait? The Switch is perfect and the carrying case is big for it. The small one that carries just the Switch will do. You don't need the $30 one that carries even the dock. He'll like this one or this one.

The next question is physical vs digital. Does your boyfriend like to collect physical copies of games or just download them? Check for one of his existing systems. Does he have a huge library of physical games or does he just have the console? If he is a digital guy you may want to consider an SD card of 128 GB or 256 GB.

The Pro controller is great, but it costs about $70. If it is in your budget get it. It is great.

u/qwertylerqw · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You definitely need a screen protector. The screen is plastic and the dock is infamous for scratching some users’ screens. I recommend either the amFilm one, which is the one most people seem to recommend, or the Orzly one, which is what I have and it also works great.

I recommend the pro controller if you find that the Joycons cramp your hands easily. It’s more comfortable and has larger joysticks, so it’s easier to be accurate with them.

The carrying case I use for my Switch is this one. It’s very nice and I’ve been using it for almost 2 years now with no problems.

u/Dcon6393 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I actually own this case, but this one looks exactly the same. So assuming that both cases are the same:

Its pretty sweet. It does the basics and thats all I really need for it. I would say the only negative is the game holders. They are a little tough to slide games into. But I have another case for games that I can just slide into the case anyway.

You can fit a good amount of joy cons in it, assuming that is what you would want to carry with it. If you are looking for something that can store a pro controller/the dock look elsewhere though.

u/Strong_Right · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the licensed switch case (https://www.amazon.com/Industries-Nintendo-Switch-Traveler-Deluxe-Travel/dp/B01MY9JB2U)

and it's great imo. Very sturdy, you get small carrying cases for games and SD-cards, there's an extra pouch inside that can fit an extra set of joycons (it's a tight fit, but it still easily closes) and that pouch has an extra layer of padding on the screen.

And a nice bonus is that it's really cheap.

u/betacux · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Would definitely recommend a pro controller, so much more comfortable than joy-con. I got joy-con comfort silicone grip things that go on the joy-con, but even then my hands absolutely kill me from playing Switch. If you just want to play as soon as you can, I guess get silicone comfort grips for your joy-con, and a comfort grip controller. Also definitely get a glass screen protector, and this case.. For games, I'd recommend BotW, Splatoon 2, and Odyssey (I assume by the time you have enough saved up odyssey will be out, it comes out in a month)

u/p1_tjc · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Oops, sorry! I thought the link would be helpful in that you could see some options and be able to choose the right one for you. I personally purchased this case and I'm very happy w/ it. It was really well priced for the quality and it looks really slick. It's soft, but it does well to protect the switch. I dropped mine in the case twice now (I'm clumsy :/) but the console remained in perfect condition. It also comes w/ 14 game slots, if you buy physical.

u/Nymunariya · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

As I don't know where you are, I'll just show what my amazon has available. Maybe it's also available in your area?

this bag seems decent. Could probably hold two grips or two pro controllers. Definetly room for more joycons, as well as the switch, dock, and some cables. You can even move the dividers.


Otherwise, in the realm of compact just switch:

I originally bought a Bigben case that allows you to stick the screen below (without joycons) and tuck joy cons into a mesh bag on top. There's space for about 4 games, and the usb power brick. Hard plastic. Feels really sturdy. I love it. Except, not great if you to quickly play and quickly put it away. And it's fairly thick. I just want something I can put in my purse and be off.

Eventually I bought the special Zelda case from PDP. No need to take the joycons off before putting it away, quick in and out. And it's also thin, which is really nice. When travelling I can just keep the power cord in my luggage because I don't always have power on the train anyway, and the battery usually lasts fine. But, the case is a little flimly and buttons are probably being pushed.

Now, I'd prefer something hard plastic, like the bigben, but I'd like thinner like PDP.

u/XachAttach · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I will say I'm very impressed with mine.

Nice snug fit for the Switch+joycons and room for plenty of games and a little mesh pouch I put my joycon straps in. The zipper is nice and meaty and I love the look and feel of the hardshell and case in general overall. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

u/Koryitsu · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I got mine just a bit ago from Indiegogo. It arrived the same day they showed up on Amazon, and when i looked at the Amazon listing that same day there were only 3 left.

Unfortunately it looks like they burned through all the stock they sent Amazon prior to Chinese New Year celebrations.

Admittedly, i was bummed when i saw the announcement about new years, assuming i was going to have to wait a month or more. Strangely, it showed up really quickly from China, and the form and fit has been great. No issues docking or with shoulder buttons as some people have said.

The base entry price includes the carrying case, and to be frank, you're going to need it. It's pretty much a thicker version of this case with a few added bells and whistles. It's thicker because the grip considerably changes the form factor of your Switch and will no longer fit into any of the original cases provided.

Long story short, buy it from Indiegogo and you'll probably be as happy as i am currently. Would buy again.

u/Marxally · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

When I have to take a lot of stuff with me, like the Switch, the 2DS, wallet and more; I usually carry it in my NES bag. For the Switch itself, I have a Orzly case, it's pretty good, I can fit my stick grids replacements, my SD card with the adapter, the Joy Cons wrist straps, my screen cleaner cloth and my earbuds; basically all I need and use.

u/CripplerJones · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You forgot:

  • I finally got a Nintendo Switch! Which accessories should I buy for it before it gets here? Most people recommend a screen protector and a carrying case. As for the most frequently recommended carrying cases, there's this one from RDS Industries and this one from Butterfox.

  • What's the biggest, cheapest, most reliable microSD card I can buy for the Switch? There's no best answer, but a lot of people on this sub recommend this one from Samsung.

  • Should I buy a Nintendo Switch? What about all of the problems I heard about? Maybe? I don't know. That's your call, friend. There are problems, as there are with any new piece of technology, but Nintendo has a great warranty with excellent customer support, and the issues aren't quite as widespread as it seems (people are most vocal when there's a problem; they typically won't say anything if there's nothing wrong).

  • What games are coming out for the Switch? There's a link in the sidebar on desktop, but for mobile users, check here.
u/PixeledBrain · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Im getting my switch in about a week and a half, so i've started to look for accesories, and I think i need some help :P

Initially ill be getting Mario Kart, so im going to buy the official Joy Con Wheel x2 thing.

I was also going to buy a carrying case, and I saw this one, which looked nice.

The last thing I was going to buy for now was a screen protector, since i've heard they can get scratched easily when placing/removing the console from the dock, so I was thinking of buying this one. I also saw a Hori screen protector, but it has horrible reviews (Mostly complaining about it unsticking at the bottom of the switch because of the heat when being docked).

So, are these good choices or should I buy some other one instead?

Also, ill probably end up buying a controller, however, I find the pro controller to be too expensive, so I was thinking of buying the Hori one which is much more affordable, but is it any good? Are there any other good controllers? And I was looking at Hori stuff, so I stumbled upon the Playstand, and the game case. Are they worth buying?


 


Sorry if this comment is too big, im very hyped for the Switch, and I dont want to ruin my experience with bad accesories =)


 


EDIT: I forgot to ask, Is a big SD Card worth it? How much space would you recommend if it is?

u/KillJoii · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I wish I could design something too. There are lots of different carrying cases, but none are in the variation that I would prefer.

For example, I'd like a case exterior like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Premium-Console-Case-Zelda/dp/B01N10SBT4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486920427&sr=8-1&keywords=premium+case+zelda+edition

but with the same interior style, and extra goods (maybe a change on the blue grips since it won't match the case anymore) like this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MT8XY4V/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Also, if there were a case to go around the console itself, I'd add a modification to be able to strap a charging pack onto the back, something like that. Just thoughts. :3

u/Abmet · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the slim case from tomtoc and really like it, but it only holds switch and 10 games.

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Carrying-Case-Screen-Protector/dp/B01N226BBW I got this case since the Switch launched and I’ve been rocking it since it’s basic but works great. I especially love how it can be used as a stand so I can prop my Switch up on tabletop mode in bed

u/tsb4515 · 1 pointr/nintendo

This bag looks pretty awesome. It comes with a Case to protect the Switch as well as the entire carrying bag. So far this would be my favorite of the choices.

u/Lady_Rebellium · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

It's simple, for sure. I'd like a pouch for cables and such, though. And, like I mentioned, this Surge one is formed specifically for the joy cons, which I feel like most case manufacturers didn't consider.

As for traveling with all my components, I quite like the RDS Deluxe bag, just because of the separated compartments and hard casing.

u/PDXBradley · 12 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the officially licensed RDS one, it's great. I'm also not using it since I have a Skull & Co GripCase that came with its own carry case. If you live in the US, I'd be happy to send it to you free of charge. It's practically brand new. Take a look at the link, if you like it and want me to send it to you, you can PM me your info and I'll ship it today.

u/TheRealLimitlessHate · 1 pointr/Switch

Yes, you absolutely need a tempered glass screen protector. The Switch screen is plastic and is tough to shatter but easy to scratch. A microSD card is also a necessity, but avoid cards advertised as being specifically for the Switch as there's no difference between them and cheaper unlicensed cards.

A carrying case is similarly recommended. Don't just throw your switch in your backpack or day bag or whatever. I like this one for its capacity for 14 cartridges: https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Premium-Travel-Console-Games/dp/B01MS7AI9G?th=1

The Pro Controller is probably the best new console controller since the 360 pad. It's incredibly high-quality and its built-in 3DS battery (yeah, really) will keep a charge for a staggeringly long time. If the price tag is too much, the PDP Mario/Zelda/etc. wired controllers have reviewed well.

u/aluisi77 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Just got the regular one. My friend has the Zelda one. I know the regular one has these odd indents on the top that look like it gives less room but its exactly the same as the Zelda ones on the inside. I wanted a normal back case cuz its less assuming when caring around the switch logo is small so it doesn't draw to much attention to HEY LOOK AT ME CARING A SWITCH!!!

It will fit 8 games total. The small ones for the 4 micro SD cards are the size of a switch cart I just took them out. No reason to carry 4 SD cards. The plastic game cases sit under the switch in a cut out made for the cases.

What I carry in my case is 4 games. The switch with joycons attached. 2 JoyCon straps and a official Nintendo USB C cable. If you want something to carry everything just replace the extra JoyCons on the grip for the pro controller this one is a nice option and its the same price everywhere. I have look at Walmarts ToysRus and Target they are all $39 for this case and its small the same size as the NES Classic case they made.

https://www.amazon.com/Industries-Nintendo-Switch-Traveler-Deluxe-System/dp/B01N23OP50/ref=sr_1_14?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1494006072&sr=1-14&keywords=switch+case

ONLY DOWNSIDE OF THESE CASES
I cant stress this enough though. These cases F-ing stink like cigar smoke. I don't know why but they do. I left mine open in a well ventilated area for a few days the and smell went away. That's the only downside of RDS cases.

u/crambosho · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Hello all,

I've been scouring the search feature and Google and I have a hard time picturing which case works for me exactly. I am looking for a case that can hold the future Nyko Portable Docking Kit, an extra set of JoyCons and their wrist straps + original wrist straps (The Docking Kit comes with an HDMI, power cable and the AC adapter). I realize that this might be a stretch given that the Docking Kit isn't out, but for those with amazing spatial abilities, that would be grand!


I'm really trying to avoid a backpack or huge compartments, a single-handed carrying case would be ideal.

These are the few that I've been eyeing but kind of torn with.

Butterfox

Hard EVA

Orzly

Surge


Thoughts anyone?

u/quartzkoi · 21 pointsr/PokemonLetsGo

It’s definitely bulky but not at all heavy! I enjoy it a lot! Definitely recommend if you dock your switch different places.

u/TemptedTemplar · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You'll need to make your own to get all of those controllers situated safely.

Get something like this case, with a easily removable insert, and then maybe two sheets of this pick and pull cubed foam and create your own inserts.

That's not probably not the best foam insert available. But I don't know the internal size of the case you'll buy. You will just want the pre-cut cubed stuff as it's really easy to map out and and plan for the things you want to fit inside.

u/Sokiyo · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have this travel case and it's a pretty great case. Easy to put the switch in(it fits with the joycons already on), 20 cartridge slots for games, and the zipper pocket which should be big enough for an extra set of joycons or two + a bit more like some cords.

Just had my chance to use this my first time flying with the switch and it worked out great. Holds the switch nice and safe, holds a bunch of games, and fits into my backpack easily.

u/DanTheMan827 · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

For me, I plan on getting:

  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Obviously!)
  • PDP Nintendo Switch Premium Console Case - Zelda Edition
  • Extra charger and cable (waiting on the exact details for what's needed power-wise)
  • Glass screen protector

    After Launch:(I already have these on pre-order through Amazon, 20% off!)

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Redout
  • Splatoon 2
  • Super Mario Odyssey

    I'm also a backer for Yooka-Laylee, so I'll get that whenever they release a Switch version.

    I was contemplating going all-digital but then I found out about the Amazon Prime discount. On my games, I saved $55.07 by just buying the physical copy.

    You really gotta wonder how Amazon makes any money on Prime subscriptions... I order items all the time that are below the normal free shipping amount...
u/Tyronne_Lannister · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

"Must have" is a stretch, like the other commentators said you have everything you need in a box. however, here's some accessories that I'm picking up for it:

  • 128 GB Micro SD Card - for downloading eshop and future VC games
  • Travel Case - to keep my baby safe
  • And eventually a power brick, once I read some reviews with the Switch and which ones are the best

    Some people are purchasing extra controllers/grips, but I'm set with the two Joy Cons for what I'm playing.
u/ArkayneShad0w · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I love the officially licensed Zelda one. Or the Mario one if you're into that. Has 24 card slots built in and a microfiber cloth to get rid of all the damn fingerprints. It won't keep it as safe as some of the other ones but it looks great and has a handle to hold it with so it probably won't fall as much if you're carrying it around. Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N10SBT4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

(By the way, it seems the other editions are not as well made. I would definitely go for the Zelda one if you want one to last... At least mine does.)

So I am looking to order a case soon for my Switch, and have mostly settled on ordering one from FYOUNG via Amazon. I came across two that seem to be the same, but are priced differently and have separate listings. To anyone that has used one of these cases before, is there one to choose over the other? I noticed a slight difference to the cutouts near the rear ventilation, but that's all. Thanks!

Just picked up a Switch via the Target deal. Need the usual accompaniment.

I'm picking up an amFilm screen protector and would like a case.

I've seen cases from TomToc, Fyoung, and the Orzly pack which seems like a good deal; and just came across this Zadii grip (Satisfye clone?), case, and screen protector that also looks like a good deal.

Any recommendations?

u/BumpyFlatline · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I use this case and toss it in my backpack along with the charger. I think it’s perfect. Absolutely love this case. Has a hard outer shell and the inside is very soft. It even has an interior flap that holds 8 cartridges. I highly recommend it.

Im not sure about messenger bags. I haven’t seen anything like that for the switch.

I'm in Canada and I bought the following: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B06WGSKRKL/ref=pe_386430_121528420_TE_dp_2
Great case that can hold many games as well as the joycon straps and some ear buds that I keep in the zippered compartment. The charger that came with the console may fit in there as well but seemed to put a lot of pressure on the system. It is not bulky at all.

I also bought a screen protector:https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N9RG3XS/ref=pe_386430_121528420_TE_dp_1
It went on easily and still looks great!

u/FatAngryDude · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I really wanted that case cause after doing some math the case looked like it would be a good deal to go for the Special Ed. but now with items slowly appearing since release, I think I'll pass and get one of the ones from PDP that look clean, specifically this one, that looks very clean looking and doesn't advertise to the world "Hey! I have a $300+ device on me!"

u/OrI3iT · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

What case do people recommend? My Switch is arriving in the mail soon and I want a nice case for it. Been looking at this case and I wonder if anyone knows if it fits cables as well. I want a case that can fit the Switch, games and USB-C cables, I really like the small game cases that come with that case. Also, is it any cases that's not too big that will fit the charging stand? I'm wondering if I wanna get one or not, but don't want it to be a hassle to carry around. Thanks!

Hey guys, I'm interested in getting something that would allow to me to bring along all my Switch stuff, including the dock/charger/pro controller. I think the the above two options (https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Elite-Player-Backpack/dp/B01MS7DVLT/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491153340&sr=8-1&keywords=switch+backpack) and (https://www.amazon.com/Industries-Nintendo-Switch-Traveler-Deluxe-System/dp/B01N23OP50/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1491152845&sr=8-3&keywords=rds+case+nintendo+switch) are probably the best choices. Just wanted to get some opinions from people who had already picked them up. Thanks!

u/marzuco · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I'm looking for recommendations on a travel case that will fit THIS inside as well as the dock, pro controller, joy grip, power and hdmi.

most of the full travel cases I see have the thumb sticks rubbing on something and this imo is not good for them. Thus I rather find something that will fit the above case in it to prevent this problem.

Thank you in advance for your time and have a good day.

u/Rajani_Isa · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
  1. if buying in store, watch an unbox video then when buying it check the console in-store to make sure everything looks alright. Just in case, due to the fact that the boxes are not sealed (unless that's changed).

  2. As said, set up the account, update, download the game if digital, etc.

  3. Screen protector and case are always good. Case wise you have ones like this, this, or this.
u/kupaa · 2 pointsr/Tetris99

Thanks. I use a dockable clear case. You can get it from Amazon or Gamestop. Amazon link

It works pretty good. It’s three pieces. One for the middle parts and two for the joycons

Great customer service and support, quality and design. You can fit 4 joycons, the AC adapter...and it's deep enough so that nothing will touch the Switch joysticks.

Highly recommend.

u/Hippobu2 · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Personally, for me, I believe that the best case is the Sheikah Slate that comes with BotW SE. EB and Best Buy both said that they will have it, so be on the look out for them, cuz amazon is out.

The same case, with different designs, is made by PDP. You can get them via these links: 1, 2, 3, 4.

This one is quite close to the Sheikah Slate as well, but it doesn't ship to where I am, so I'm not sure it would ship to you.

PDP also has this amazing looking soft canvas cases if you're interested: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

You could also go with Hori hard case, which is ugly af, but looks extremely sturdy. But then the actual case from Nintendo (it's not available yet, just wait for it I guess?) is quite close to the Hori one as well, I guess.

I'm throwing all those links at you, because, I have NO idea who Biogenik are and a quick Google doesn't result in anything positive about them.

As for screen protector, for me generally, any film protector would make the screen look worse. They are also a lot more likely to get scratches than the screen alone. I'd recommend a tempered glass screen protector if you get one at all. Here are some, one from Orzly, and one from CaseBase. Orzly seems like the better choice since you get 2, and their other tempered glass protectors are very highly rated.

u/BlueBloodedTance · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

This carrying case as it is pretty inconspicuous, has divots in the case for the joy cons, and a dedicated space for games. I also snagged this powerbank came recommended by Spawn Wave. It's fairly cheap and should be able to charge the Switch twice on a full charge.

u/Bubo_scandiacus · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Butterfox has a new version of their case which is pretty much perfect. They addressed the "getting the Switch out" issue. I own 3 different cases and it's the best one, hands down.

That's pretty cool but I think I've seen it in Datablitz SM Megamall, weeks ago. Maybe it was a different brand, but I question the necessity of this considering you'll either be carrying the Switch in a travel case when it's out, or leaving it in its dock at home. And speaking of the dock, you'll have to remove the case every time you want to dock the Switch. Bit of a hassle if you plan on switching modes a lot.

>Messenger Bag (since I'm always moving weekly)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N22YAIP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_rhGlzb5Z4BRJ7

Datablitz carries this HORI travel bag for the Switch, which I bought for myself and it does a good job carrying the console, dock, HDMI cable, power adapter, and Joycon grip with extra Joycon attached. The dividers on the inside are modular and can be moved around to suit your packing style. It's about half the price of the messenger bag, and you can still stuff it into a backpack for portability (which is how I carry it around when I do need to bring everything, though that's only happened twice).

>Case (sana meron dito nito)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY9JB2U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_shGlzbTK8JKQZ

There are cases here though none that I've seen which have handles. This isn't an issue though if you've already got a bag or backpack to carry it in, which I highly recommend doing anyway; carrying a Nintendo-branded bag/case around, especially one tailor-fit for the Switch, is just begging to be stolen.

While I don't agree with the necessity of some of these accessories, my Switch use case may very well differ from yours (when you eventually do decide to get it). So if you still think those exact items are the ones you really need to get, then I'd suggest using a shipping forwarder like Jinio (Xend-owned), My-ShoppingBox (FICI-owned), or Shippingcart (LBC-owned) to receive and ship your orders directly to you. I've used all three and they're generally equally reliable.

u/Coffee_J · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got the official Nintendo one, but I might switch it out for something sturdier. I like hard-shell with glass screen protector.

u/PinoyLaker · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

How many of you are using a grip on your switch? Any recommendations and is it mandatory?

Also, I just bought this ultra slim protective case from Tomtoc, on a lightning deal for $16.99, and I really do like it and how slim it is. But I also saw that Tomtoc had this case that came with a free grip for the same if not lesser price than the ultra slim. What do you guys think. I’ve only had my switch for about a week and probably gonna play 60-70% in console mode and the rest handheld. What’s nice about the ultra slim is that it fits in a couple of my shoulder bags when I take on the go.

u/matx313 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

TomToc Slim Hard Case bro

You will get many different opinions on cases.
Myself I like thin cases and not bulky buy yet it protects when I throw it in my backpack. So Tomtoc has been my case since day one.
Note-they have redesigned it to fix the nuances from some reviews. Gray is great color

u/STUNT1990 · 5 pointsr/nintendo

Not sure but this is PDP's Switch "case" (also on BotW version) and, by the looks of it, it's just a semi rigid pouch.

I'm probably getting this one once I can see it in person or a nice review; it looks like it will have some kind of foam (as shoulder buttons would tilt the switch and yet it seems to be in a horizontal position) and I think it's made by the same company as a pretty similar looking NES mini case.

u/Teggert · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I originally bought this one, but ended up returning it. Downsides for me were:

  1. The outside is squishy, not hardshell as advertised.

  2. The way the straps hold the system in place is a real bitch to take it out, especially if you want to keep the joycons attached.

  3. It had a strong chemical smell that didn't go away after a week.

    Instead I picked up the official RDS Traveler Deluxe, which I absolutely love. For handheld protection and transport it couldn't be more practical imo, and it has a lot of quality details I really appreciate. Found it at walmart for $18.
u/ExternalRoof · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Is there a ultra thin case to protect just the body of the switch (the tablet part only) or a 3 Piece with Joycons still detachable that can fit the Butterfox case comfortably something like this? Or is the Switch better off naked (without a case)? Also are these PDP Gel Guards worth it even with all the bad reviews?

Edit: A Word

u/Trunen · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

RDS and Nintendo make some great hard cases, but there is another case that a lot of companies have copied from eachother that was well done... Surge being one of them. They are a little softer and don't have a carry handle, but are still great cases.

That's the case I have, it has recessed areas in the lower half to accommodate the Joycon trigger bumps and the lid has more than enough free space to give the analogue sticks room to breath. Add to this the fact that the screen flap hold 8 games and doesn't touch the sticks and I'm pretty sure it's perfect.

u/RoyalAquaBlue · 21 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use the RDS Industries Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case. It's $20 at Walmart and Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Game-Traveler-Deluxe-Travel/dp/B01MY9JB2U/

It has room for cartridges under the system in little removable plastic boxes. I removed them. The pouch in the middle makes for nice padding. The case is fairly rigid, so I know I could drop my system and not fear it's safety.

Personally, this is what I plan to use forever when traveling with my switch. If I need more than this... like extra controllers and the dock... I'll use a second bag and load it up with all the extras and then use this case for the system and put that in the same bag.

EDIT: Forgot to mention the handle is great and makes carrying the system extra easy.

u/Derpinator_PF · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

https://www.amazon.com/Orzly-Carry-Case-Compatible-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B01NAUKS62/

This is the case I'm currently looking at, but I'd like to get a second opinion before making the purchase. Is there a carrying case better than this while remaining in the same price range?

I usually move it with the dock, controllers, adapter, etc., but I'm only looking for a small case to protect the screen when I throw it in my backpack.

u/Asherr18 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you're looking for a smaller case for just handheld, I have one just like this and keeps my switch 100% safe.

As long as you're not chucking it off a building, this will be perfectly fine and will take traveling bumps. I also personally hate huge cases as I like as much traveling room as possible.

The supremely popular case made by RDS Industries (here) may leave scuff marks on the bottom your switch. But what would I know, I am the only one to have this problem with it having over a quarter billion in sales.

I suggest leaving micro fiber clothes on the bottom of it. Other than that, it is a great case.

This case fits the dock, the joycons, a pro controller, the switch inside of the case, some games, etc. I managed to get some more stuff to fit in there too, and it has an extra pocket outside. I keep my switch games in a gameboy cartridge case, so they fit nicely in there though.

u/FlanBrosInc · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Interesting, it's saying A now. Either way there's definitely fake reviews.

https://reviewmeta.com/amazon/B071R5WHX5

This highlights some major red flags. Many reviews being posted all on the same day. Reviewers sharing a common history. Repetitive adjectives like "sturdy". Also apperently the product has had a significant number of deleted reviews and so have many of the reviewers.

That being said, with a case there's not exactly as much to worry about as there is with electronics or things like that. The only thing I'd be particularly worried about is build quality and the zipper (which, if not designed well, on the inside can scratch the Switch and accessories).

In the end it's up to the purchaser, but there's definitely fake reviews there. It's definitely a Chinese knockoff You can get an Orzly for $12 or a Butterfox for $10. If someone's buying something to protect their $300 device and $60 games it's probably worth spending the extra $4 to get a product with a reliable background.

Idk how old she is so My recommendation is to get here one of those nintendo gift cards that she can use in the shop. That way you don't have to worry if she will like what ever game you get her & she can pick out what interests her the most. May I also recommend a carrying case and a SD card. I will link both if you want to take a look and figure something out. The reason I posted the 400 gig sd is because you want to (even though it's not necessary) future proof for when those downloads start to stack up.

Like most people said, getting the Switch and Zelda is just fine. If he buys games physically like I do (easy to trade games I don't like) you won't be needing an SD card.

​

What I would recommend is $20 official Nintendo brand carry case (link) that comes with a screen protector. It fits the portable console and few game cards in a really slim case that is good for bus rides and such. Plastic screen film is enough for the possible wear from repeatedly docking the station

u/Nefthys · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I want to get a small charger and a battery bank that I can store in a Switch case (like this) and I've read a lot about 3rd party docks bricking your Switch. Some people say that even 3rd party chargers/battery banks are a problem, while others say that you can use pretty much any charger/battery bank.

So what's up with that, are 3rd party chargers/battery banks okay to use (google says that 15V/2.6A is okay?) or not?

u/musicboy74 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I'm currently using the Carry-All case. I've had it since Day 1, and it works well. However, the creator of this Switch TakeCase posted a giveaway here about a week ago and I think it looks great, I will be buying that one soon. Another good one is the Deluxe Travel case, I know someone who has it. It just isn't optimal for me since I carry a Pixel charger and I don't think it would fit in that zipper pouch.

You're definitely gonna need a screen protector and a dock sock. The switch will get scratched cuz the way designed, from putting it in and taking it out. And you'll want to get a type c charger so you can wall charge it in handheld mode. And this.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAUKS62/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_9oE0BbVND7G0Y this case is awesome. And definitely you'll want extra controllers.

u/Vicious007 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I've had this one since launch. It's held up great. It doesn't fit a pro controller, but it comes with 2 game cases that hold 4 games each, and there's also a zipper pocket inside for other things/more games. You could find a bigger case that holds controllers and dock, but at that point you might as well just throw all your shit in a backpack or duffle bag. This size case works best for keeping the system safe, whether you're only hauling just that, or putting it in another bag.

There are other colors and styles made by the same company, some a couple bucks cheaper.

Actually, Nintendo Switch case by Younik was the only one that I bought.

Pros:

  • I am not scared about the Switch, feels like I can throw my case under a car and it will survive in it
  • 19 slots for game cartridges
  • mesh pocket to hide other accessories

    Cons:

  • it is a little bigger case than the other ones, so it is harder to fit it into Everywhere Messenger Bag.

    The other case came with my Switch when I bought a used one. It looked like this one, just with the lack of hand-holder, which I find pretty convenient to have. Also, it didn't feel as durable as the Younik case, but at least it fit well into the Messenger Bag.

    The 3rd case came inside the Messenger Bag, which was the most simple case that has only space for the Switch and nothing else.

My wife got me a Switch carrying case for Valentine's Day last year, just before the switch launched. It came with a mesh bag to hold the HDMI cable and a spare USB-C charging cable. But 99% of the time it holds my standard sized n3DS. It's prefect for it and just right to keep it from dings or small drops without being too bulking. It has a little padding built in as well so it isn't simply "barrier-only" protection. Still fits in the pocket too, which was important to me. This is the kit on Amazon. If you have a Switch, it's a great purchase as you get one product with two uses. The top of the fourth picture shows the little bag I use.

u/BringoutCHaDead · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I highly recommend a case. I don't think a screen protector is enough for taking the switch on the go. I wouldn't want to throw it in a back pack without one. I have bought two cases for mine and the one I linked below is my favorite and most form fitting.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0769GCSMK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1

I also recommend getting silicon grips for portable play. The form factor of the Switch is not comfortable and having the extra bump on the back of the grips for your hands makes a world of difference and they are not expensive.

I originally started with the RDS case, then outgrew it and switched to the Butterfox case. Both have been great, and the Butterfox one in particular is IMO the best Switch case. They recently came out with a larger version with more space for accessories.

Neat, I don't have to hide my switch from my co-workers so I use this case.

Not very discrete, but nobody cares lol

Is THIS the case you're talking about? Because this is the best.

Also as mentioned here earlier get the amFilm tempered glass protectors. They're inexpensive and work great.

EDIT: Looked it up and apparently the case you're talking about is not the one I'm talking about. Don't get it, it looks like shit. You can get a much better case and screen protector if you go with the ones I linked and for the same price. The case is by RDS Industries but is still an offical Nintendo approved product and has the Switch seal/logo and everything.

Yo i got this case, because it has a perfect shape for the shoulder buttons and theres enough space for your analog sticks and accessoires PLUS you can use your hybrid cover with it :D https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06XSYL18F/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494424329&sr=8-1-spons&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=younik+switch+case&psc=1

My Switch is completely save now 👍🏽

I would recommend any case by RDS, they are good quality. This is the case I wanted but settled for the sky blue Zelda case because that's all the store had when I got my system. Assuming the Splatoon 2 case keeps the build quality it'll be great!

LMAO, that's not the case I'm talking about, although I do have that one too. My measurements and math were based on this case, by the same company, which is comparable to the BotW I think. You would need to measure your own to confirm, but I can't be too far off. So I really do suggest you calculate the volume of your case and see just how surprisingly more space hungry it is :)

I don't know of any cases that have that feature but many cases do have double zippers which would accomplish what you're looking for. Put switch in case, close both zippers leaving a small space in the middle for the charging cord and you're good to go. That's what I do with mine here's the Amazon look for the one I purchased.

I haven't seen anything in the states like this yet. From the article I found talking about these cases, it says its a Japanese exclusive right now. The article was written in April. I currently have the PDP zippered case and it's alright. Got this only because it's an ARMS case really. I'm hoping my Switch will be able to fit in it with the hybrid case I have on it.

i'm wary of cases like this and ones with mesh pockets inside bc i don't like the idea of anything pushing down on the joy sticks for extended periods of times. i got this one and it's perfect for me

I'm not sure where on this subreddit I saw this, but they recommended the Orzly Carying Case. Holy smokes do I love this case! Very sturdy, sleek, and discreet!

I have this case that I will just put in a backpack-style purse that looks like this. The case is a bit bulky, but I don't usually carry too much other than my wallet, phone and keys. If you are lacking space, then maybe you can find a cute makeup bag to put your switch in? Otherwise, I'd recommend at least getting a screen protector for it.

Right now I have this. I am traveling more and I want a case that holds more. I want it to hold the Switch, AC adapter, Dock, Joycon grip with Joycons Attached, Switch with joycons attached (4 total joycons), pro controller, and to have room for physical game cartridge holder, unless it has spots built in the case for them. I was looking at this one. Anyone have this? Does it have room for everything? Is there a better case to get? Also Looking for a switch grip. Also looking at getting this grip. Any recommendations and thoughts appreciated.

I use an official Nintendo licensed case. Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY9JB2U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_B-wGzbAFBH15E
Quality is fantastic and design is good imo. Sticking to licensed products can be nice.
