I don't know how much you're hoping to spend on a new hobby, but video games can provide decades of entertainment. The barrier to entry can seem daunting, because some of those games are so complex and huge and confusing, but there are some very simple games among the variety. I agree with others in this thread who say Nintendo is the way to go for someone brand new to gaming. They cater to children first and foremost, so every game they make is designed to have intuitive controls that anyone can figure out regardless of prior gaming experience. That being said, they've made some of the most highly awarded games of the last few years, which are both accessible to new gamers and extremely fun and rewarding for adults. I've taken a moment to link some Nintendo stuff on Amazon that I think would be an excellent starting place. Also, getting into gaming is a brilliant way for older people to connect with their youngest family members in a natural, enthusiastic, and unforced way. They'll be able to give you tips, help you with hard levels, and just generally be interested in your hobby because it's something they already love.


Nintendo Switch Console on Amazon In order to play most video games, you'll need a console or a PC. This is the Nintendo console, and it is only compatible with Nintendo Switch games. Be careful you don't buy Nintendo Wii games or Nintendo 64 games, those are different consoles and they aren't compatible. Xbox and playstation games are also not going to work. This box is everything you need short of a TV and an internet connection to play the new Nintendo games.


Mario Kart on Amazon This game is as simple as it gets, and it's a timeless classic that has been remade half a dozen times. You hold one button to make your car go forward, and you steer left and right with the other hand on the joystick. It sounds simple, but there is a lot of fun to be had in this game. This is traditionally considered a good party game, so if you decide to pick up an extra controller or two down the road, you could invite people over to race against!


Super Mario on Amazon This game is a step up in difficulty for a new gamer, but still within reach and arguably one of the best games made in the last five years. You'll control Mario himself through different levels trying to... you guessed it... save the princess.


Zelda on Amazon This game is the most difficult game on the list, but is still easy enough to be the first game that many young people ever play. You'll control Link, the Hero of Time in a similar manner to how you would control Mario in the previous game, but you won't get simple levels. You'll get an entire world to explore, get lost in, and fight monsters in. There are more things to learn in this game than the other two, but remember, everything is designed so that a ten year old can learn it. And this game is widely regarded in the gaming community as the best game in one of the biggest franchises in all of gaming.


If you have any questions at all, feel free to hit me up. I think video games can be for everyone, if you just know where to start.

I looked online and saw prices ranging from $300-500. Is there any difference between these consoles other than the skin?

The $300 base model of the Nintendo Switch (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01LTHP2ZK/) does not include any games, but is still what you should most likely buy. More expensive models may have games bundled or free in-game currency (e.g. Fortnite), but they shouldn't be more than $350 (plus tax). At $360, you're not really saving any money, and anything more expensive than THAT is from a third party trying to make a quick buck. The console itself currently has few variations; most of your customization will depend on what color controllers you get with the console.

What type of accessories am I going to need?

This depends on your use case. I'd recommend getting a screen protector (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01N3ASPNV/). If you expect to bring the Switch out of the house a lot, also get a case (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01MR63I6F/). Anything else, like special controllers (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0748S3GXG/) or a dock cover (https://www.etsy.com/listing/560319070/), is largely unnecessary right now; look into them when you find you need extra joy-cons (https://smile.amazon.comdp/B078GZM4H8/) or a tabletop stand (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01N9RTMWS/) for your Switch. In the end, you should not be spending more than $400 for the Switch, one game, and core accessories.

As for games, so far I planned on buying Smash Bros, Let's Go Pikachu, and One's Justice. Can you recommend any other games? I was never into Zelda but hear the new game is very good.

How old is your kid? Super Mario Odyssey (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01MY7GHKJ/) is fun, and has a great co-op mode if you want to play together. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also always a blast (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01N1037CV/). I'm also a huge fan of Splatoon 2 (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01N9QVIRV/), but it's probably better for older kids because it requires more dexterity. There's lots of games to recommend, but it'll help to know what your kid already likes... or what you want your kid to like ;)

Side note: To play online, you need Nintendo Switch Online (https://www.nintendo.com/switch/online-service/). It's $20 a year for one ACCOUNT, or $35 a year for 8 accounts. Each account also has separate save files, if multiple people will be playing on the same Switch. Smash Ultimate and Mario Kart both have online modes, but Splatoon's primary game modes are online-only.

Whats the difference between mario party and mario space odyssey?

Super Mario Odyssey is an action-platformer for the Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Party is a virtual board game for the Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Galaxy is an action-platformer for the Wii, a completely different console.

Let us know if you have follow-up questions!

u/GreninjaNerfer · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

On accessories - must haves definitely include (like everyone else said):

  • microSD card (64GB minimum imo, 128 is what I have because I have a fair amount of digital games)
  • A TEMPERED GLASS screen protector. This is easily the best screen protector on the market.
  • A travel case. I would recommend a nondescript black one; you don't want something that says "STEAL ME PLS"

    Less important things:

  • A stand (the one on the back of the Switch is pretty bad and if you use it a lot it will just snap off). The good ones are the HORI playstand with 3 angles and the official Nintendo charging stand.
  • Power banks/chargers: u/queuebitt made a whole website for this and regularly posts charger/power bank deals on r/NintendoSwitchDeals.
  • Extra controllers and Joy-Con grips: if you're going to play with multiple people you will need to get more controllers unless you want to play with the single Joy-Cons (which isn't a great experience). The Pro Controller you can find for around $60 now; in my opinion it's a really good investment.

    Before we get on to games, there's always the debate of physical vs digital. Indie games are often cheaper digitally because they have to partner with companies to release physical copies, but for most "big" titles physical or digital really depends on the game.

  • Physical: the big advantage is that you can sell it once you're done with the game. This is good for games with low replayability, like Mario Odyssey; however, it comes with less convenience because you have to swap out the cartridge every time to switch games.
  • Digital comes with convenience; you don't have to swap out cartridges and you don't have to deal with potential cartridge issues, but you're stuck with the game and digital games go on sale way less often that physical games. Digital is great for games you'll open and play for a few minutes or rounds, like Mario Kart.

    On to games. (these are the ones I have and can approve of)

  • Breath of the Wild is a must have if you're going to buy a Switch. It also has fantastic DLC that you'll probably want to buy along with the game.
  • Super Mario Odyssey is also really fun, but doesn't lend itself to multiple playthroughs very well. The first experience is amazing, but subsequent playthroughs don't have the same charm unless you're speedrunning.
  • Super Mario Party is a good experience for the first few times you play it but it suffers from a lack of content. I'd say get it when it goes on sale.
  • Mario Kart is a staple Nintendo game. Consider digital.
  • Smash Ultimate is also fantastic for both large groups and 2 people, but the solo modes aren't as great.
  • Overcooked 1 & 2 are so much fun, especially if you have 4 people. It quickly turns into a glorious mess and I love it.
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is actually surprisingly fun for a game with maniacal rabbits. It also goes on sale ALL THE DAMN TIME so that's also a thing.
  • Splatoon 2 is a very creative, cute and charming game - but it's a team shooter game, so it's easier to get frustrated compared to other games. The DLC (Octo Expansion) is fantastic, though.
  • Hollow Knight, Celeste, and Shovel Knight are all amazing games (especially for the prices you get them at) but they're basically digital only. I'd say get him an eShop card and let him decide which games he wants.

    TL;DR microSD card, screen protector, case. eShop card and get Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart at least.

    Also: don't buy anything "Nintendo Switch" branded! They're literally the exact same things as the unbranded ones, just priced higher because of the logo.
u/lifelongintent · 3 pointsr/GirlGamers

Another vote for the Switch here, primarily because of the exclusives. Nintendo makes a lot of kid-friendly games that you'll only see on Switch, like Mario, Yoshi, Kirby, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, etc.

Nintendo's online service:

  • Is $20/year
  • Gives you cloud saves for most games, so that if anything happens to the Switch, you can still access your save data.
  • Will let you play online for select titles, but requires you to download an app on your phone if you want to voice chat with others.
  • Gives you access to classic NES + SNES games. I imagine most would be challenging for a kid who didn't grow up playing them, but there's an option to "rewind" if you make a mistake or lose a life, and you can do this as many times as you need to. If she's interested in classic games at all, there are some real gems in there. Kirby's Adventure is a pretty easy one that still plays great, I highly recommend it.

    As far as online goes, people can be really mean. This sub has endless examples of women who have been mocked, harrased, and even threatened. For that reason, I would be cautious about online play, or at least avoid chat.

    That being said, some games have neat features that require online. For example, Animal Crossing (a game where you build your own town), allows you and your friends to visit each other's towns. As long as online play is limited to real-life friends and kid-friendly games, she should be okay. Nintendo is obsessed with family-friendliness and parental controls -- this page on their website is dedicated to parents and keeping kids safe in gaming, if you'd like to have a read.

    To save some money, I would suggest getting the Switch and just one game, with an accesory or two. Or, you can keep the accessories in mind for future birthdays and holidays. Some ideas:

  • 1 year online subscription: again, this is useful for online, cloud saves, and access to classic titles, if you feel these things are right for her.

  • A micro SD card: The Switch only has 32 GB of storage space. If you buy digital games, that will get used up quickly. A 128 GB micro SD card costs about $25 CAD, and can be inserted into your Switch so that you can fit mores games on it.

  • A Joy Con Grip: if she likes playing with a controller, this is a great and affordable option for about $20 CAD. Alternatively, this guy makes great quality, officially licensed, wired controllers (and many other Switch accessories) at very affordable prices.

  • A case: so that if she ever plays it in handheld or wants to take it to a friend's house, she has somewhere safe to store it.

  • An Amiibo: These cute little figurines can connect to the Switch, allowing you to unlock things like outfits, power-ups, and other neat extras in the game. This explains how they work in more detail.

    I hope this helps! :)

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.


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/MatNomis · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I own what I think are the three most common (in the USA anyway):

  • RDS GoPlay (with case; and adding the "tape fix")
  • Satisfye (with slim or big cases)
  • Skull & Co Gripcase (with case)

    With any of these, I highly recommend getting the cases. Once you put these grips on, the Switch doesn't fit into any standard Switch case. I failed to follow this wisdom with the first grip I purchased (the RDS GoPlay), but fortunately it fits into the Satisfye Slim case (probably the big one, too). I don't think the inverse would be true, as the GoPlay fits with room to spare. I'm assuming the actual GoPlay case would be too small for the Satisfye.

    All three of these are comfortable and provide a substantial improvement over the Switch with nothing. All three of these cases have issues with docking. The Satisfye and RDS grips will not ever fit into the dock...they're just not designed for it. The Skull & Co was designed to fit into the dock, but they only just barely managed it. The fit is tight, and they also did not realize that Nintendo's docks are not all created equal, and some have a smaller gap, into which the Gripcase won't fit into. It's really a crapshoot whether your Gripcase will dock with your particular dock.

    The Gripcase is the trickiest to remove of the three. If you do it wrong, you'll put noticeable "shearing" forces on your joycons, because you'll be leveraging them against their rails as you try to peel the case off. Make sure to watch Skull & Co's usage video on how to remove it.

    The Satisfye only requires a careful sliding of the Switch, against some rubbery friction. The RDS case simply pops off after you flex the plastic clamps a bit. Ironically, the RDS is both the easiest to remove, yet also allows you to detach the joycons without removing the Switch from the grip--not an issue for a plane ride.

    The Grip Case is the narrowest and most compact. For analog-stick intensive games, it provides a good grip, but doesn't give you "adult" thumb spacing. Your thumb knuckle may still need to bend quite a bit with your right hand. The Satisfye, OTOH, is explicitly asymmetrical to deal with this, and gives you a very good thumb placement onto the analog stick...at the expense of making the buttons a little harder to reach without adjusting your grip. The RDS is symmetrical, but "flares out" almost as widely as the Satisfye, so you can simply adjust your grip as appropriate.

    To be honest, I use all three at different times. Specifically for a plane ride, I'd use the Satisfye. However, if I could keep/own only one to be used for all my grippy situations, I'd keep the RDS, simply because I find it to offer the best combo of comfort, versatility, and ease of use. The Satisfye is slightly more comfortable, but it needs to be removed more often (and removal itself is less convenient). The Skull & Co is the smallest/narrowest, but also least comfortable of the three (though still very comfortable compared to no grip), potentially somewhat versatile if it fits in your dock (but that's random chance), and trickiest--arguably scariest--to remove. OTOH, it also offers side & back protection for the Switch, since it's more like a silicone smartphone case. So if you are trying to increase the Switch's ruggedness, this is probably the best option of the three. Also of note: the Skull & Co grip case doesn't reliably fit into every Nintendo dock, but it certainly works with Skull & Co's own dock, which is a nice product if you're willing to take the buyer-beware risk of using third party docks. The Grip Case also offers multiple palm rest options, but none of them flare further out to the sides, I don't think even the newer, chunkier palm rest they've started selling would help with the right-thumb-to-analog stick spacing.
u/raffiking1 · 1 pointr/GameTheorists

> you clearly havent seen in online gaming groups if you think people would take bad graphics, belive me.

yes these players exist, but they are in a heavy minority. There are much more players who don't care about graphics and want good games(fun games, good story, good gameplay, ...).

> the stuff with the 3ds and wii u the only games you saw most the features deployed (and to an extent in the wii) were first party games because they were so closed off which i agree is dumb but with the switch hopfully as they have anounced several 3rd party devs they will be able to use the hardware better and make games for it

just remember, when the Wii U was announced, there also were many third party titles announced.

> also side note not all computers work the same way so it would be easier and better if developers didnt do pc cause its a harder platform (as different hardware configureations) vs console where its minor tweaks between 1 and 1s plus the 4 and 4pro.

yes, but for consoles the hard thing isn't the options you need, it's the console itself. Programers normally work on the PC and it is way easier to test that directly on the PC than to copy it over on to a console and then testing it there. And they have to repeat that, everytime they want to test something, which often happens hundreds or even thousands of times. Whereas creating different graphics settings doesn't need that much testing and can be done on one and the same system for all settings.

> you dont need the pro controller and your assuming that the controlers arent comfortable yet i seen people who went to the event say they were fine.

Yeah, I never had them in my hands so I don't really know how they are. I've heard that they are fine but the pro controller still feels much better, especially for people with big hands.

> the online unless they plan on doing worse version of PS+ then there shouldn't be anything wrong with it.

From what I've heard, it is going to be pretty expensive without giving you that much stuff. You will get NES and SNES games you can play for one month and after that, you would have to buy them.

> also wheres your source on the games price or are you making a guess based on the rest of current gen?

OK, they are 60€, but still, they shouldn't be that expensive.

here some sources:

  • Mario Kart 8 - Deluxe It's just a port with a few extra features, not an entirely new game.
  • ARMS It's not such a huge game.
  • Splatoon 2 It's just a port with a few extra features, not an entirely new game.
  • (TLoZ Breath of the Wild, TES V Skyrim and SM Odyssey are understandable because they are pretty big games)
  • and then there is 1-2 Switch for 50€ instead of being included if you buy the console(like it was with Wii Sports).
u/TheLawlessMan · -4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

> That's when you know Nintendo is stepping up.

Hi. Not a Nintendo fan but I would argue that the GBA, DS, 3DS (which I had) lines were are mostly fine so I would say its more so that you just didn't want their stuff. Their older consoles weren't bad either from what I have heard. They had slip-ups like the Wii U but they were doing fine in the past. The Switch is more of them being good at what they do.

> Unfortunately when I got old enough for my parents to let me play CoD and Halo,

Whats unfortunate about being exposed to a wider variety of games? Are you now a psychopathic killer that doesn't know right from wrong because if not you might be exaggerating a bit... I am sure you enjoyed those games so lets not pretend that we are above them now or that there is or was ever anything wrong with enjoying them along with everything else.

> (Not to knock halo or CoD, fantastic games in their own right)

This was basically an "I don't mean to be rude but let me just say something rude" to the devs. Nice.

> they were seen as the "holy grail" of games just because they were violent

Welcome to the world of being a Nintendo fan. Congrats on taking your first steps to being unnecessarily snobby towards other systems and devs for no good reason.
For your info Activision and Bungie devs certainly did a fuck ton of work and with how popular their games were back in the day I think I can say that most of the world agreed that their games weren't just popular because they were violent. Some of us played games because we actually liked them. You may have played them because you thought it made you look cool or mature but that wasn't everyone. Step off the high horse. Halo 3 and the early COD MW series were so popular because they were actually good games.

> And then I see YouTube videos of these Nintendo games that people enjoy. Mario kart, Zelda, splatoon, etc. Quality, content filled games that focus on the most important things about video games: THE GAME ITSELF

Probably because you were purposely only looking for those.
Again congrats on another milestone. You are now pretending that you can't also go to a PS4 and find plenty of games that play good, look good, don't put a hole in your wallet, etc. You are circlejerking on a Nintendo sub the right way. Keep it up.

> Every game now a days is trying to nickle and dime me PAST my initial $60 purchase
> focus on the most important things about video games: THE GAME ITSELF. Not DLC

Yup. Even though Nintendo has started announcing Season Passes before their games are even out. Yup. Totally. Not Nintendo.
^Sub ^Hint: ^This ^is ^the ^part ^where ^you ^should ^now ^say ^"Oh ^well ^now ^I ^am ^okay ^with ^it."

> Sure the graphics may not be as good, or the framerate, which is definitely an issue for people sometimes. But damn it I don't think most people notice it when they play the switch because it's just pure FUN.

Don't notice it? Source? Did you see all the different forum posts and reviews about people noticing the framerate dips in Zelda? Do you see reviews and discussions for some of the games with questionable ports? Framerate does actually affect gameplay and more than a few people notice it. You say you play on PC so I am sure you get that. I am not one of those super snobs that goes "I just can't play games below 60fps" but there is a clear difference. Inconsistent framerates do affect my gameplay and fun. My game slowing down during a fight isn't "pure FUN." I am not saying I don't still enjoy the game but I am not in such ecstasy that I don't notice the drops.

> the online infrastructure seems a little sketchy

You can say its more than sketchy. Its outdated and archaic. I need my phone to use voice chat.

> And i kinda wish I got the red and blue joycons and not boring old grey, but I couldn't find any red and blues lol

Check Amazon US. It looks like they have some.

I like my Switch and a lot of Nintendo's catalog but damn guys...

u/asyrin25 · 1 pointr/gaming

>It is. Which is why i dont agree with people bitching about how "slow" the switches hardware is. If the games on it are good (which they are), why the fuck does it matter?

Dead Cells is a fine example of why it matters.

It's a great game if you have even the most remote interest in Metroidvanias. It runs like shit on the Switch. The crappy framerates of the game significantly impact the gameplay in a game where careful timing and reflexes are required.

>I have a 3ds. While yes, they have good games, most of them are clerly designed to be purely portable games. Not to mention the fact that with my large hands, i find holding the 3ds for longer than 10 minuets at a time to be very uncomfortable. Which is why the switch is better. Not only is it more comfortable in hand held, not only can i have multiple controller options, but i can dock it and play it on my TV as well.

They make grip cases for both the Switch and the 3DS that significantly improve their feel. My hands hurt holding either of them outside their cases. For the Switch, I recommend the Satisfye grip although the Skull and Co Gripcase is a close second. For the 3ds, I personally use the Monster Hunter Cross that I've modded with a rubberized grip. This is a pretty expensive option, however, so there are cheaper ones for people who don't want to invest that much.

>Exactly. And my PC does PC things and is a superior gaming machine to my Switch. But most games that i can play on one or the other, most time, i prefer the switch. I have emulators on my phone as well. But id still rather have those games on the switch because its a better platform for gaming than a Phone is.

I disagree. I use a cheap little xbox controller phone clip to hold my phone when I game. The controller connects bluetooth and provides a generally superior experience to gaming with my Switch. My phone has better audio, a better screen, and a more powerful processor. It also has free cloud saves and can connect to the internet without wifi (anbd has a superior wifi antennae).

>Ill take the taller screen, but even that said.. your arguing over .2" as if its a huge deal. Its not.

No, it's not. The OLED vs LED is though.

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/ZombiePyroNinja · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

First, Third and Fourth- I take it you've really haven't had a Nintendo console for a long time.

Nintendo is trapped in another decade when it comes to online, and it really shows with the Online service and onboard NIC card. When it comes to the price of first party games; welcome to a nintendo console: Anything with a first party Nintendo character will rarely price drop but they're usually worth it with Nintendo being one of the few devs to sit as high as they do on metacritic for as long as they have.

> Yeah I know there are some good games for this thing, but the system experience outside of that is really sub par.

That's the whole point really. The video game console plays really good video games. Pick up Fire Emblem if you enjoy a tactics game/Persona's social system or Mario Odyssey if you enjoyed Sunshine on the gamecube days or Bayonetta 1&2 or Smash. Or start trying indie games, my Switch for a really long time was a glorified Binding of Isaac machine after Breath of the Wild until the library expanded as large as it did

As for your second point it's really your preference, I got large hands and the switch feels fine in portable mode. Used to have a Vita and it was a nightmare. If you hate the Joycon dpad so much then I recommend Hori Dpad Joycon (But to be clear it does not work wireless nor vibrate. Friend of mine loves the dpad on it though) for handheld play and a Pro controller for docked, the pro controller for me is on par for comfort with an Xbox one controller, never beena fan of Dualshocks.

u/ikilledschrodiescat · 1 pointr/ShouldIbuythisgame


> 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/NuM_Brrr_WoN · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have both the gel guards and the harder plastic armor guards. They both feel pretty good while adding some protection when lying your switch down and also the added bulk on the back of the grips really helps you hold onto the switch better. I do find that I like the gel grips better as the armor guards are more open (which I like) but can get in way of trigger buttons more which I don't like as much. Also the armor guards feel a bit loose at times but still for pretty smug, the gel guards do feel better in the hands and seem to fit better although they cover mover of the controller so the buttons are like half covered. This is mostly only a problem with the plus and minus buttons the rest are still easy to press. Also I prefer the joystick covers that come with the gel guards as they are silicon and have a better grip than the armor guards ones which are most plastic feeling and kinda slippery. I would say they both are def worth getting depending on your play style and the pros and cons I listed.
Here's a link to the gel guards I have. You can find them at most stores too instead of Amazon if you like.

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.

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/Ryan_Duderino · 1 pointr/MonsterHunter

If you’re going to be playing a lot in handheld, I recommend getting a grip case. These are generally considered the best two available.

I use the satisfy grip, while my wife uses the skull & co grip because it better suited to smaller hands. Either one is solid, and your hands will thank you.

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.

u/Rhonder · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

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/Chokaay · 2 pointsr/Switch

I think most of your questions depend on how you plan to use your Switch. For me, 99.9% of the time I use it in handheld mode, so accessories important for my usage are different than someone who primarily uses it in docked mode.


u/Pyrored14 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hey guys!! This is awesome to hear my buddy is not the only person who would love to have something like this!!!

I'm somewhat new to the 3d printing and designing, but if your guys have this Hori case:

The design I made fits one of the 2 pieces of plastic that holds up to 12 game cards.

It's nice, when you don't want to risk loosing all your games when you want to take half of them on a quick road trip.

Also I was going to publish this design to my thingiverse so anyone with a 3d printer can print this out whenever :).

If anyone does want one, I would love to start producing these for people. It would be a dream to turn my designs and prints into a business at some point in time. Otherwise I'm just happy to hear that others like how it looks and would like one as well.

u/tomster2300 · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I am a paraplegic and get the exact same pain with handhelds. Grips have been a lifesaver! I tried skull & co.'s kickstarter grip and a cheap rubber one off Amazon before sticking with Satisfye's Switch grip. I have big hands and it was the only one large enough to comfortably play with. Edit: They JUST launched all new products but I have their OG Switch grip.

I have other branded grips for my N3DS XL and Vita, but forget what they are (I think they're Japanese brands I found on Amazon), and they're comfortable and work great.

I suggest buying a handful off Amazon to try out and then keep the one that works. They're all made slightly differently so you wont really know until you have them in your "grip" :-) .

Good luck!

Edit: I found the exact grips in my Amazon purchase history (all from Amazon and I live in the states).



N3DS XL (I alternate between the two)



Switch (This still looks like my OG one)


u/LampCable · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have big hands, but I have never had a problem with the ergonomics of the joycon. I've owned every Nintendo handheld though so maybe I'm just used to it.

My recommendation would be to first borrow a friend's 3DS. Play smash bros or something intense on it for a while and that should give you a pretty good idea of how the switch will feel.

You could always get some of these to help with comfort as well (see the third pic) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01MUAO202/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_XVW6yb5WWWKHK

Generally though, everybody is different. You won't know until you try it. But I would bet if you just start playing Zelda you'll be having too much fun to even think about whether or not your hands feels comfortable.

u/buffalopete · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Some things to consider.

The costs: A second set of joy-cons runs 70 bucks or so, additionally you're correct a Joy-Con Grip should be purchased to seat the controllers - probably another 10 dollars or so. There are joy con grips with a port for a charging cable, that will charge the joy cons those are 25 bucks. I have one, but I never use the charger, rather I swap the extra joy-cons onto the switch while it's charging.
A pro controller runs around $60.
Ultimately, 80 bucks for joy-cons vs. 60 for the pro-controller.

The quality of the controller:
The pro controller is nicer, no question. But it can't split into two allowing two people to use it.

What your kids will want/what will save you headaches:
My vote is to get another set of joy cons to ensure they're both playing with the same type of controller and not fighting over it. They're likely at an age where they won't feel the need for the "best" controller so much as they'd want the ability to play with more friends.

u/CoryBoehm · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

ANY Tempered Glass screen protector will work well. Personally I have Orzly on my Switch but have used Spigen on phones in the past. Both are top notch and have been doing screen protectors for handheld electronics forever.


The Docks Bands can also help ensure the Switch is not coming into contact with the dock, especially if you have younger kids.


The other big accessory to consider early on is a hard sided carrying case. Anyone will do. Personally I have the Hori Tough Pouch. Being a step ahead means if for some reason the Switch is leaving the house there is at least a carrying case ready.


If you know the Switch will be used on long road trips, etc. a battery pack like Ravpower 26800 PD is also great to have around put is much more optional.


In terms of the SD card, I have had my Switch since launch, have about 12 games now and buy physical cartridges when possible. I have still not exceeded the built in memory and needed an SD card. That said if you are buying one only buy from Best Buy or Amazon and if buying make sure you aren't buying from a third part seller. Also look for a UHS-I or UHS-II card (UHS = Ultra high speed). Sandisk and Samsung are two more reputable brands. In terms of size, go with the largest size that doesn't make your wallet scream as this is something you want to buy only once if possible.

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/bluaki · 32 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Here are some of the chargers that are known to perform "GOOD" or "BEST" with the Switch.



Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Nintendo Switch AC Adapter|$29.99|Amazon US|This is the only charger you should use with the dock but it's big and doesn't work great with any phones
Google 18W Pixel charger|$35|Google Store|More portable than Nintendo's charger, great at charging phones too, 6ft detachable cable
Google 60W USB-C charger|$59.99|Google Store|Bundled with Chromebook Pixel 2, great for laptops, very long 12ft cable
Apple 61W USB-C charger|$69|Amazon US, Apple|Bundled with 2016 13" MacBook Pro, no cable included
Apple 87W USB-C charger|$79|Amazon US, Apple|Bundled with 2016 15" MacBook Pro, no cable included
RAVPower 26800mAh USB-PD battery|$74.99|Amazon US|Might charge much slower unless you turn off the Switch before plugging it in. Avoid the included bad AC adapter.

Here are some other links for the Pixel phone charger: Best Buy, UK version



Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Motorola TurboPower USB-C 15|$15.99|Amazon US|Non-detachable 5ft cable
SONEic 15W USB-C|$19.99|Amazon US|Detachable 3ft cable
HORI Switch car charger|$19.99|Amazon US|Probably the best car charger for now
Google 22.5W Dual Port USB-C charger|$39.99|Google Store|Two USB-C ports, includes one detachable 6ft cable
RAVPower 20100mAh USB-C battery|$57.99|Amazon US|
Apple 12W iPad USB charger|$19.99|Amazon US, Apple|Requires a USB A-to-C cable, better than any other USB-A chargers



I won't list prices here since they fluctuate a lot. Some of the chargers listed above have a non-removable cable. All the others (except the iPad charger) require a USB C-to-C cable.

USB C-to-C: For the Macbook, Google, SONEic, and battery pack chargers listed above. Here are a few on Amazon: AmazonBasics,
Anker, Cable Matters, Aukey.

USB A-to-C: The iPad charger is the only one that gives good charging speeds with these. The 5ft cable included with the Pro Controller works. Here are some others on Amazon: AmazonBasics, Anker, Cable Matters, Aukey.

No matter which charger you use, it doesn't matter whether the cable says it's USB 2.0, USB 3.0, or USB 3.1. They all charge at the same speed. Just make sure it has the correct plug shape on each end, that it has good reviews at a reputable merchant, and that it's long enough for how you want to use it.

u/rodfather · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've been going overboard with accessories. Here's what I picked up so far:

Glass screen protector - Just in case.

128GB microSD card - I rarely buy physical games

Pro Controller - I love it. So comfortable.

PowerA Hybrid Case - I basically use this as a stand for my Switch when I'm on the go.

JDeal portable dock - It works. Make sure to follow the instructions. Works with my Nexus5x 5v 3A portable charger.

[Retractable HDMI cable] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019J96PSI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Hestia case - The Switch with the PowerA Hybrid Case, portable dock, portable USB-C charger, and retractable HDMI cable all fit in this.

USB 3.0 LAN Adapter - Faster speeds when on the official dock.

Gooseneck tablet holder - Ultimate comfort. Play while in bed.

Magic NS Wireless Adapter - I had originally bought this so I could use my PS4 controller. This was before I picked up the Pro Controller. It works. There was a recent firmware update that gives gyro support for PS4 controllers and it works well with Splatoon 2.

On the way:

Mumba case - For better comfort/protection while playing in handheld mode.

u/sasasa377 · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

Mate I'm sorry to say but I strongly doubt you'll be able to get $90 for the joycons. The case is neat, but you can get brand new joycons on Amazon for 71$, less for the red/blue ones. The color is neat but I'm doubtful anyone would pay a 20$ premium on it. Perhaps if you priced it a bit closer to 70$ you'd have better luck - but even then after fees and shipping you're coming out way lower than you could on Craigslist.

As for the mouse, that's a pretty okay price there. Good luck with the sales.

u/Lorben · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

>So apparently Yu-Gi-Oh does not support cloud saves. Does the game itself have any other means to help players secure their save games or progress?

The Switch has no way to back up saves outside of cloud saves. If it doesn't support it, you can't back up your saves.

>Can anyone recommend a stand that can charge the Switch (whether I slip the USB cable through an opening or whether there is a USB plug - either way works) and help prop the Switch at an angle comfortable for an adult playing wirelessly when sitting in coach during a flight?

Nintendo has an official charging stand. There's a USB C plug on the side where you can plug in a charger or battery bank.

Or regular adjustable stands for the Switch are pretty easy to come by.

>When you put the Switch in the dock and play in TV mode, is it normal that the Switch seems to charge really slowly (if at all)?

The Switch will charge more slowly if being actively used. It charges faster in sleep mode.

u/MapleA · 2 pointsr/Splatoon_2

I agree with you BUT!! I would not recommend the pro controller in OPs configuration. Meaning if you’re in his situation just play handheld. The reason is because when you hold the switch the screen is closer to your face and you feel less like your hunching over a small screen. Pro controller is great on a TV. Not when you use the switch in stand mode. The ideal way for OP to play mobile is if he has a satisfye grip. If you like having neck problems then go ahead play with a pro controller in portable mode.

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/LockwoodE3 · 1 pointr/gaming

Someone linked this case, it’s not the same one but it’s designed the same so it should work perfectly :) edit: but yeah I’ll let you know if I find the original! :)

u/The_Vexed_Vixen · 2 pointsr/Switch

Second the screen protector and skin from dbrand. My dock was really scratching up the back of my switch and I wish I’d bought one before.
I have this case and really love it - it’s a super sleek case that’s contoured for your switch and includes two screen protectors. I also have these gel grips that makes playing handheld significantly more comfortable without bulking my switch up too much (it still perfectly fits in my case.

u/nndttttt · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Tempered glass screen protector and a nice case are must haves.

I use a Hori Tough Pouch and an Orzly Tempered glass screen protector. I would also recommend thumbgrips, the one on the switch are a bit slippery and it'll prevent wear and tear as well like this. I use Skill & Co. Skin set.

I haven't gotten the pro controller because I spend most of my switch time on the transit and the grip has been okay for home. My friends have all said it's a must have, I'm just waiting for a sale to grab it.

Because you've played botw already, I say get the controller. Better yet, get another game on your list instead! I'd recommend a multiplayer game so you can use the switch for what it's meant for.

u/Lord_Burrito666 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have two Hori Game Cases that store 24 games, or so. I had all my games in one of them, then I started buying games enough to fill the second one. By the time I filled the second one, I said screw it, and started putting all my games back in their original game cases. It's too much money invested to have them all in these storage cases that are easily stealable. I don't travel heavy with my Switch, but if I do, I just put a few games in one of my Hori Game Cases for the trip itself and I'm good to go. But travelling with / storing ALL my physical games? Not my thing anymore. I have a lot of RPGs I'd like to keep in good condition, not get stolen, as well. :)

Here's what I used: https://www.amazon.com/HORI-Game-Nintendo-Switch-Officially-Licensed/dp/B01NASY99Z/

u/ppandie · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I've been on international and USA domestic flight with my switch in carryon and have never had any trouble. It's basically a tablet + controllers, so you might need to take it out separately in the bin for security if thats a requirement where you are.

If the international flight has outlets between the seats, you should be golden! Otherwise the usb charging port that most airlines have won't keep it fully charged the entire time, but will still prolong the battery life a good bit from my experience (especially if you start with full charge and keep it plugged in). You can also invest in a power bank that has power delivery(?) feature.


I would really recommend this charging stand thing also: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D12JGBB/
This way you can play table top mode on the airplane tray thing and charge at the same time.


Happy travels!

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/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/Ivopuk · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I want to HIGHLY recommend the Hybrid case (Normal or Splatoon 2 version).

Its SO fantastic and pretty cheap. Only con is that you have to take the Switch out of the case to put it in the dock. BUT that sounds harder than it is, I swear it takes maybe 2 real seconds.

Its fantastic case that protects the Switch and allows you to set it up in 3 different angles. PLUS, it looks really good.

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.

We'll I'll be getting a SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD which is going for $69.95. A 256GB micro SD is too much right now. I considered getting a 128GB to have even more, but per GB the 200 comes out to be about the same so I figured why not get a little more.

I'm also planning on getting the Nintendo Switch Hybrid Cover. I could just buy a case to protect my screen, but this seems like it will be good for standing up my Switch at angles the kickstand doesn't

I'll be getting a USB-c cable for charging as well, but I'm might shop around a little still. The one you have picked out there looks pretty good though.

I'll probably buy a carrying case too, but I haven't settled on one yet. I might hold off a while, but I'll probably buy a second pair of Joycons, and a Pro controller too. Of course I'll have to get either a charging girp, or charging stand for that extra pair of Joycons when I get it too.

u/brisnipe · 5 pointsr/Switch

This is the screen protector that I got. Looks great, feels great, works great. And it’s a super cheap investment to keep that screen looking amazing. I had the plastic film one on my switch ( it came with my hybrid cover ) it was ok for a little while but definitely got scuffed up quick and didn’t feel nearly as good as the glass ones.

u/IRagretNothing · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I use this stand all the time. Just plug a cable in and the switch charges. It also makes the switch really stable
It’s $25 Canadian

I got this battery case. It works really well and has adjustable kickstands. $50 Canadian

This is a really good carrying case. It’s small and compact. Can hold the switch in it’s battery case. It also holds a lot of games. It’s black with grey Mario print on it. So if you don’t like Mario that might be a deal breaker. But it’s pretty good. It’s at Best Buy for $20 Canadian

u/Biggus_TM · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Ill build two routes handheld gaming and docked.


Switch - $300

Pro Controller -$65

Legend of Zelda BOTW - 44.99

Mario Kart 8 -$55

Total - $ 464.00


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/r40k · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Keep your toenails longer and use those instead.

Okay, okay, honestly the best thing to do would probably be some light surgery on your Switch. Pop the kickstand off by opening it beyond its stopping point (it will be fine, it pops right back into place pretty easily). If you look on the bottom of the kickstand where it hooks into the bottom of the Switch, you'll see the only thing holding it closed are a couple of plastic "teeth" or nubs. You could file those down just enough to make it easy to pop open without having it fall open on its own, maybe? Replacement kickstands are $4, so even if you fuck up it wouldn't cost much to replace.

The other option is the $20 charging stand which is much, much better than the basic kickstand because it actually lets you charge it while its standing, and it's adjustable. It's also $20 and its another attachment to carry around with you, though.

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/PGZ4sheezy · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I've heard that you can charge the Switch out of the dock via a USB-C adapter plug thing. Do I need to use the official Nintendo Switch AC Adapter, or am I safe using just my phone (HTC 10) wall adapter and any USB-C cable?

I highly recommend the Satisfye grip when used handheld. Fully supports the joy cons to prevent bending/flexing, and makes it so much more comfortable. This plus a glass screen protector is my setup. A silicone case wouldn't fit with it due to fitting very tightly on the bare switch, but the satisfye seems to be a pretty good case as far as protection goes on its own. Most importantly, the rigidity it adds.

u/adrenaline4nash · 1 pointr/vita

I thought I wanted it but then the original Switch was revised and seems to be the better option for me. I don't think the minor size difference between the Switch and Switch Lite makes up for all that you lose (battery life, dockability, etc.). I am planning on getting the updated Switch (Fat?) as I traded in my Xbox One S for $300 credit after getting an Xbox One X for $175. Just waiting on a holiday bundle.

However, I won't be selling my OLED Vita or slim Vita because I want to play all the indies I already have on the Vita. The Switch for me will be almost exclusively for Nintendo titles.

Oh yeah, and I bought this D-pad joycon for the Switch Fat in handheld mode. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AJRN4CE/

u/slipperypooh · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

And every review says "Great for little hands" or "small", haha. Though I appreciate the link.

I guess I didn't realize you could play with motion controls with the pro controller, so I guess that could be an option. Can you play motion controls with the comfort grip, ala: https://www.amazon.com/PowerA-Joy-Comfort-Grips-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B01MS7YUA7/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1549558299&sr=8-2&keywords=switch+joy+con+comfort+grip ?

I guess it's not much different than the Pro Controller.

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/swissarmychris · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

If you want to be able to play over the next couple of weeks but not spend the full amount for a new Joycon, you might want to check out the HORI D-Pad Joycon. It's pretty cheap because it doesn't have most of the internals that are in a full Joycon, but it still works and feels fine.

The main limitation is that it only works in handheld mode (attached to the Switch) because it doesn't have a battery or bluetooth. But if you're okay with that, it's a great little controller -- I bought one for playing platformers with the D-pad, and ended up just leaving it on my Switch.

u/oglsmm · 1 pointr/AmiiboCanada

I've bought quite a few switch accessories.

I bought the Pro Controller.
Works great. Exactly as advertised.

The Nintendo Joy-Con, Neon Blue & Neon Red - Left and Right Edition.
Also works great.

HORI Officially Licensed Premium Protective Filter for Nintendo Switch .

This is not great. I find the edges of it are always peeling back especially along the bottom. However installation was easy.

Because of the above I've now bought:

Spigen Nintendo Switch Screen Protector Tempered Glass / 2 Pack / 9H Hardness for Nintendo Switch 2017

I have not used it yet so I cannot comment on its effectiveness.

I have also ordered the following:

HORI NSW-003U Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charge Stand Officially Licensed

It was supposed to be released on April 12th according to Amazon and it still hasn't shipped and Amazon doesn't have any accurate information as to when they will receive stock.

I'm pretty sure that's it so far.

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/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:

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:

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/wileymurkykidde · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Previously commented in /r/nintendo:

Wow! Both the original post and the comments are really thorough. I have to confess a lot of this is over my head.

I have a question: is it safe to use a 3rd-party converter with an official Nintendo AC adapter?

For example:

  • MoKo 3 in 1

  • Nintendo Switch AC Adapter

    I'm hoping the converter simply acts as a pass-through, and that the power adapter works as it should.

    Note: I hope links to Amazon are allowed. Apologies if they aren't. I wanted to make sure I identified the products I own.

u/HubbaDubba2017 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

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/Garish2 · 1 pointr/SwitchHacks

I can't take another photo yet but this is the case: https://www.amazon.co.uk/HORI-Switch-Game-Card-Case/dp/B01NASY99Z/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1537085939&sr=8-6&keywords=switch+game+case

But in all honesty, I wouldn't suggest buying it just for this reason. The only reason I used this was because I already had everything at hand unused and just decided to bodge it all up, it's rather large and clunky but gets the job done without having to spend any more cash haha.

u/clanton · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Well I'd say your best bet would be cutting the bottom of the grip with a Stanley knife. Saves buying another grip and should be pretty easy, it's just soft plastic. Otherwise I've heard good things about this Satisfye grip - https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07FNJJG5V/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_vGMRDbG23WWCE and it doesn't seem to obstruct the USB C port at all.

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.


Hard EVA



Thoughts anyone?

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/Rosero_e · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

First one is more elllaborate, the official one is very simple, seems like won't do too well with drops. I went with this one:
HORI Tough Pouch (Black) for Nintendo Switch Officially Licensed by Nintendo https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MR63I6F/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_apkRybA07NSY1

Great protection, good price.
All the best!

u/strangemusicbox · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

If you're nervous about scratches (as I am), I would definitely recommend this console cover. It's doubles as a kickstand of sorts, but much sturdier than the one built into the console. You don't be able to dock it while the cover is in use, but if you purchase a USB C extender, you can just plug the console into the dock-- that way you never have to worry about scratches if you have a warped dock.

I have both of these products (just got the extender today) and they work beautifully. I hope this helps!

u/ejhockey · 29 pointsr/digitalnomad

Regular Nintendo Switch! Buy an HDMI cable and compatible USB-C dongle (I got this one off of Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D6GXHKV/) so you don't need the docking station, and bring the original power adapter along. Now you can play the Switch on your hotel TV!

I've hooked mine up to almost every TV in hotels I've stayed at across the world. All the TV needs is an HDMI port and you're good to go (sometimes you gotta figure out how to change the input, not too hard though).

Edit: I also recommend getting this small stand. Great for airplanes, trains, rooms with a desk and no TV, etc.

u/pauuu · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

i think i saw somewhere that there are joy con with dpad's like this one : https://www.amazon.com/HORI-D-Pad-Controller-Zelda-Officially-Licensed/dp/B01AJRN4CE?th=1 . is this just a modded version of the hori joycon? so this doesnt have all the features of the original joy cons?


u/bino991 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

So here's the thing about the switch, it's stupidly durable. Here's a video showcasing how strong the console itself actually is:


That being said, the closest I could find to a case similar to what you described would be this:

MoKo Nintendo Switch Case, Segment Design Protective Set Crystal Hard Back Clear Cover, Shock-Absorption and Anti-Scratch, for Nintendo Switch Console (2017) - Crystal Clear https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B078V15VY4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_ArTKAbS1SVHHA

All other cases I've seen are kidnapped stow and go and don't let you play the console without taking them out of the case.

As for controllers you have a few options. The main one is buying another set of joy cons (which are the controllers that CE with your switch). This way you'll technically have 4 controllers because each individual joy con can be used as one. You can also buy the Nintendo official pro controller which is similar to the one made for the Xbox 360/Xbox one and doesn't split into two like the joycon. To buy a set of joycon or a pro controller is about the same price. Nintendo does have some officially licensed pro controllers that have Zelda and Mario designs on them but they are not wireless which may or may not be a deal breaker for you (they are cheaper though).

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...

Joycon grips

I've heard people say they don't fit right but I really couldn't recommend them enough. Mine fit perfectly and make handheld way better.

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.)

u/Loofa08 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I hear you man but can I make a suggestion and buy the joy con that has to be attached at all times to work? The one with the D Pad. I’ve had it half a year and other than a goofy squishy minus button it works flawless. It’s normally $20 but I bought it for $13 on Amazon.

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/Augustry7 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I play mostly on handheld, so I got a pair of silicone sleeves for the joycons, and they're actually really comfortable because of the ergonomic bump on the back.

best investmade i made other than the switch itself. super comfy, easy to put on/take off.


only drawback is that it's clunky to store.

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/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/Manfred1816 · 1 pointr/MarioMaker2

Yeah I have the same problem with going down. It’s not horrible, but it happens enough to where I would buy something else to try. I wish I could find a SNES style controller with the dpad that’s in the dpad joycon you can buy( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AJRN4CE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_X-4BDb8B8038A ). That’s the best feeling dpad I have ever used.

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/verticalmonkey · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Well again, I'm not wound up about it, but literally every version of these games that has been re-released (even Wii/Wii U VC) has either Y and B inputs or button remapping, so it's a weird defense to make. Also I'm not sure why someone wouldn't use a pro controller if they have one, ESPECIALLY when I'm playing 2D games on the TV because the joycons have no d-pad to speak of. I even got this so I could have a real d-pad in handheld mode rather than those insane buttons. But again, that's me and I'm not saying everyone has to do it the same, just a bit weird that you're confused by using pro controllers (which I'm not sure even came up in this thread). My question would be why use a single joycon for a game with no analog controls? Why would I want to play NES games (or even modern 2D platformers) with a joycon control stick?

Again, nothing wrong with X and A but there are pretty obvious benefits to using dual joy cons or pro controller over a sideways joycon (which I personally view as the ultimate last resort for multiplayer games).

u/ElectricTrombone · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Same with me. I tried several different grips and not many of them helped except for this one. It actually works pretty great. It changes the angle of the right side so your thumb lays across the joystick more comfortably.

u/BillTNJ · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm using the tough pouch by Hori, I really like it. Protects my switch well, I also throw in my wrist straps and a few games. Doesn't have any funky smell to it like a lot of the other 3rd party cases do. I picked mine up at Toys R Us, it's also available at Amazon.


u/deuslunus · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Are you having a hard time choosing the best accessories for your Switch? I personaly can't decide between these carry cases:

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.


I just wish I could get a better look at it!

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.

I have the

  • Surge Case and it's great and so far big enough for what I need.

  • Screen Protector

    If you want to stream the Elgato streaming devices are cool and work perfectly with the Switch.

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

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/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/eyeCU81Meye · 1 pointr/dragonballfighterz

Thanks! I actually do have some Qs, if you don’t mind:
Do you know if the this Pokken controller would be ok for DBFZ? https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Tournament-Controller-Officially-Licensed-Pokemon/dp/B01A6LEXFK/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1538839074&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=hori+nintendo&dpPl=1&dpID=51V7JpqB2eL&ref=plSrch

Is there a resource anywhere that has each fighters stats? Like a spreadsheet or something? I’ve honestly been looking, but haven’t found anything.

Thanks again!

I purchased a Younik Hard Case and it’s been perfect.

Nintendo Switch Case - Younik Upgrade Version Hard Travel Carrying Case with Larger Storage Space for 19 Game Cartridges, AC Adapter and Other Nintendo Switch Accessories https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XSYL18F/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_N98SBb1ZH8814

I have my Switch in the main compartment and my Vita sits perfectly in the zip section. Handheld perfection in one home! My commute has never been better.

u/WastelandHound · 3 pointsr/5by5DLC

I've tried a couple cheap-o grips, and they never feel quite right. The plastic ones always seem kind of loose and I don't like the feel of silicon after an extended period. The Satisfye looks pretty good, but what I'm holding out for is the Hori Split Pad Pro, which basically splits a Pro Controller in half and turns them into Joy-cons, with the addition of things like programmable back paddles that are pretty standard on elite/pro style controllers now.

Granted, it's about twice as much as just a grip, but it's still cheaper than a new set of official Joy-cons.

u/TornadoCreator · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Honestly never bothered with Screen Protectors for anything. Don't use them for my phone or my Vita either. I have a carry case for my Vita and a normal flip-open phone case. That works well enough I find.

Would recommend you pick up this case - https://www.amazon.co.uk/HORI-Switch-Tough-Case-Nintendo/dp/B01MR63I6F/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_63_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=YKARMVB7RKBEDG2BPDBE

I like the Hori brand case. Used them for my PSP, Vita, and 3DS. So I know they're good quality. So long as you look after your device, there's no reason you should ever have the screen scratched. Just remember, don't pull or tilt towards yourself when taking the Switch out of the dock, that's how the dock ends up scuffing the screen.

u/Sarspazzard · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

For holding the joycons independently I very much recommend these gel guards. I was holding off on getting them because I thought it would make them feel cheap, but quite the opposite, now I love holding them. The thumb caps add just enough size and grip to the analog sticks too. Totally worth the 8 or so bucks. Different colors are available too.

u/billybobiswatching · 2 pointsr/MarioMaker

This is the best option I can think of. I have it and I must say the d-pad on it is quite nice. It only works in handheld mode though.

Edit: Wanted to add that there is a Mario and Pikachu variant of it alongside the Zelda variant.

Edit 2: What Pro Controller do you have? Do you have Nintendo's official wireless Pro Controller or do you have one of the officially licensed Pro Controllers made by companies like HORI, PowerA and PDP?

u/TheBwarch · 3 pointsr/MarioMaker

Pokken Pro Pad for me, if it's got all the buttons for normal gameplay. https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Tournament-Controller-Officially-Licensed-Pokemon/dp/B01A6LEXFK/

Probably won't work for Make Mode because of the radial menus there, but for platforming it'll probably be great. Dpad on this thing is the stuff dreams are made of.

u/e0f · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

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/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.

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.


u/pyXelr · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

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


  • 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


  • 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.

u/quetzalcoatluss · 2 pointsr/Tetris

I personally use the Pokken Controller for games with a D-pad, including tetris. I think it's a great controller and of all the options for a dpad on switch I really enjoy this one. I agree with you and the other guy about the pro controller d-pad, unfortunately it really does just suck lmao. Here's a link the pokken controller, hope you find what you're looking for! https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01A6LEXFK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/Haraxter · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Have you considered something more like this then? It should fit right into your case and keeps your games accessible. While a second game slot on the Switch would actually be pretty handy stuff like this is a close second.

I got one question..

If I buy a official ac adapter from nintendo like the one from above will I be able to plug it in the EU Nintendo Switch and charge it normally without problems?

edit: Gamestop has grey joy cons online as well

u/PrincessPeril · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the RDS Deluxe case, and really like it! I work at a library and occasionally bring the entire system in for a program, and it comfortably holds the tablet with joycons attached, dock, pro controller, AC brick and HDMI cables... I can fit the joycon grip in one of the slightly curved slots in the top left and right (I usually tuck the AC brick in the other).

There's also enough space that I can bring along, without worry, a second set of joycons, all four joycon straps, and a Hori game case. I just tuck these things in and between the Switch itself and the dock. I face the Switch screen towards the front of the case, and while I do have a screen protector on it, nothing has ever gotten scratched -- with the case zipper shut, it holds everything snugly enough. I'm not sure where you live, but I was able to pick one up at Target in the US (Oregon), and it was nice not to have to wait on shipping.

That being said, the reviews that mention it having kind of a weird smell are totally true. I left it open and airing for a day or two before use and it doesn't bother me/I don't notice it anymore.

u/WillTay95 · 2 pointsr/gamecollecting

I currently use a combination of the following:

Both Hori cases fit perfectly in the top of the switch case and allow for 67 games to be carried at any one time (plus one additional in the console itself)

u/StimulatorCam · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I hope you will be able to enjoy it too and good luck !

u/pretenderist · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I feel like it would be best to get things like this for Switch and this for 3ds and just put it in a generic backpack/messenger bag/purse/whatever.

u/ultranonymous11 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have this one and it works great for exactly this sort of thing. And charging in tabletop too of course. Plugged into a portable charger on a plane is awesome.

u/Silentico · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Screen protector and a case for the switch is the only thing I can think of. And oh... the 24 games case that can also hold 2 extra sd cards. Its this one.

u/mobott · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I really like the official carrying case, because the built in kickstand gives a better angle than the one on the switch, and makes it possible to play it on surfaces that I couldn't with the normal one, like on my bed. I can't vouch for the quality of the included screen protector because I'm already using a glass one, but I guess it's a nice inclusion.

When I played the game on the Wii U, the official Pokken Controller was really great. I think THIS is the Switch Equivalent.

That being said, I do like the Joycons a lot, but I know I am in the minority for that, lol.

u/SiriusFulmaren · 12 pointsr/MarioMaker


This things d-pad is great. It works with any game that doesn't require control sticks.

Edit: This is only useful for playing stages. The editor has functions bound to the control sticks.

u/Schneider21 · -2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use the charging base from my iPad with a braided USB-C cable. The cable rolls up nicely and tucks in the pouch of my Zelda case, and I tuck the charging base right below the D-Pad.

I did some testing when I first got the Switch, and this combo charged at the exact same rate as using the official charger. I've been very happy with it!

u/MetalPug79 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have that same Sheika Slate Switch case that came with LoZ:BotW Master Set... I can fit 3 of these cases by Hori...


Each holds 24 carts, and they’re not thin cases, they’re about an inch thick. 2 will fit under the netting, and the 3rd fits right next to them, it’s just not under the net. As long as you don’t want anything else in the case to also carry, 3 will fit just fine. Just a suggestion.

u/ajax54 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I love the "slim" tomtoc case. https://www.amazon.com/Compatible-Nintendo-Original-Hardshell-Cartridges-Accessory/dp/B07C3Z8FFC
For some reason they increased in price, maybe one of the other colors is cheaper. I got mine for around 16 bucks. Looks like the "wide" version of the case is cheaper now?

It has just enough room to fit the 2 smaller kinds of skull&co joystick caps. It barely adds any thickness, yet it's rigid so it'll protect pretty well from falls. I can put the switch in my jacket pocket [darn, it's hot now..] and a few pants' pockets.

There's also a fatter one for chargers and such, but I have a pouch for my battery pack so I didn't need it.

u/Tito1983 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I bought the official Nintendo case and works great.
Also is not bulky at all.

u/OckhamsFolly · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I would suppose the only appropriate device for you that’s out would be Hori’s new extended joy cons they did for Daemon x Machina. I think they’re kind of too big myself, but might be perfect for you.


u/Worried_Toe · 2 pointsr/AlternativeAmazonVGF

Have you seen this thing? I'm going to pick one up. I play my switch solely in hand held mode and my hands cramp up a lot. I am hoping this helps with the cramping. Finding a case that this thing fits in though and is still portable, will be a challenge.

I use the Hori DPad joy con replacement for playing in handheld.

Haven’t a solution for docked yet, I use the 8bitdo dongle that allows me to connect a PS4 DualShock to my switch.

u/danielleosaur · 2 pointsr/Rochester

Yeah...you probably should. I bought one, but haven't put it on yet. I've had it since launch and I haven't had any scratches on it. But I'm extremely careful when putting it in the dock and I have a case for it. I'd say a case is absolutely mandatory if you're going to be using it on the go.

I would like to get one, but is it comfortable to use in handheld mode with the flap in the back?

u/BestSorakaBR · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have this which is sadly the best case to actually put on your switch in my opinion. The single piece hard shell case you'd need to remove the entire thing if you want to just remove 1 joycon. The TPU cases seem a bit too finicky to get on from some reviews.

I might give this grip and case a try. Apparently the grip is larger than the stock one so it should fit better in my hands. The case seems like it should fit joycons so it seems like it's what OP's looking for. The licensed one from Nintendo is hot ***. Doesn't fit anything but the switch, games, and cables which is what I get from my $2 generic case.

u/AlligatorTaffy · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The Sheikah case from the Special Edition, but i am really REALLY interested in the one from Surge.

u/waffledork · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm going with the Nintendo Switch Carry-All Case by Surge.

Here's why I like it:

  • It's got a hard, structured exterior so it won't get squished while in my bag.

  • It's got a microfiber interior.

  • It has elastic straps to keep my Switch from moving around inside the case.

  • It holds 8 games and has a mesh pocket for the Joy-Con straps.

  • It's only $12.99.

    All that seemed pretty good to me so I'm going to give it a shot.
u/queuebitt · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Switch charges well in handheld mode (not docked).

The controllers automatically charge when connected to the Switch. If Switch is plugged in they’ll charge to 100%. If not plugged in they’ll charge up to 50%.

Tabletop mode is tricky. The USB-C port is on the bottom and is blocked when using the built-in kickstand. There is a $20 charging stand that solves that problem.

Several cases can fit the whole Switch, including dock. AmazonBasic has a cheap one, but no designated space for physical games. Others available with a quick search.

You can charge with a power bank. See Power Bank Buying Guide for the Switch to help pick out the best one for your needs.

u/SquinkyEXE · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch


This is the one I have. It holds everything nice and snug and the material on the bag is nice. I recommend it

u/Envision17 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

If you're not confident enough to fix it yourself, I'd say go for a new one (they have them on Amazon for ~$27). I'd also recommend sticking to official Nintendo ones, since a lot of 3rd party accessories (primarily docks) have been bricking Switches (plus 1st party AC Adapters aren't hard to find, again, ~$27 on Amazon).
