Nintendo Switch Accessories Release Schedule and Availability

There are several new accessories for the Nintendo Switch coming up for release in the next week. Here is where to buy them.

The original Nintendo NES Classic Edition controller is the rarest video game accessory we have ever seen. The original Nintendo NES Classic controller is selling for about 20 times the original MSRP of $9.99 on reseller marketplaces.

The situation for Nintendo Switch accessories is by far not as dire, but there have though been already shortages, like for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. It is therefore advisable to pre-order Switch accessories if possible. There will also be no deals on original Nintendo Switch accessories in the coming months. Nintendo has recently unveiled a series of new Switch accessories that will be released in the coming weeks.

First up is the Nintendo Switch Dock Set. The Nintendo Dock Set gives Switch owner the convenience to dock their Switch unit at two locations without having to haul around the dock.

The Nintendo Switch Dock Set retails for $89.99 and will be released on May 19. Several retailers including Best Buy are taking pre-orders now for the Nintendo Dock Set. This Switch accessory is likely selling out as we do not expect Nintendo to make a lot of these available at release. We compare this accessory to the Nintendo Switch AC adapter, which continues to be in short supply since the launch of the Switch console in early March.

On June 16, Nintendo will release the new funky Neon Yellow Joy-Con controller. The Switch consoles supports to connect up to 8 Joy-Con controllers. A pair of Switch Joy-Con controllers retails for $79.99, making controller sales a great add-on business for the Japanese video game maker. The Neon Yellow Joy-Con controllers will sell out for sure, as the Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con pair are already difficult to find in stock. Reseller prices are $40 above the MSRP for these Joy-Con controllers.

The $79.99 Neon Yellow Joy-Con controllers are available for pre-order at Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart. Nintendo will start to ship these new Joy-Con controllers on June 16. Also available on June 16 will be the fitting $7.99 Neon Yellow Joy-Con Strap.

Also to be released on June 16 are the Nintendo Joy‑Con (L) and Joy‑Con (R) AA Battery Pack. This $34.99 Switch accessory allows gamers to extend the battery life of their Joy-Con controllers. The Joy-Con AA Battery Packs are available for pre-order at Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart.
