First Switch accessories appear at EB Games Australia, system may use USB-C charging

Posted on December 5, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Nintendo won’t be launching Switch until March. Still, that hasn’t stopped EB Games Australia from listing a few accessories for the system.

Three @play products are now up on the retailer’s website. These include the Starter Pack and Starter Pack Plus accessories as well as an “Extra-Long 3m Charging Cable”.

The Starter Pack and Starter Pack Plus listings mention a “Go Case”, two screen protectors, and a cleaning cloth. The latter one also contains earbuds. EB Games’ final accessory is a USB-A to USB-C charging cable measuring at 3m. It would seem to indicate (but not confirm) that Switch uses USB-C as its charging method.

USB Type-C is a newer kind of connector. Among other things, it allows for faster charging. We’ll have to see if Nintendo ultimately goes with it for Switch.

Thanks to Stuart for the tip.
