Standalone release of the Neon Pink / Neon Green Joy-Con confirmed for North America this month

Posted on January 6, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Update 2 (1/6): This is now up on GameStop.


Update: Here’s something that you may not realize. In Europe and Japan (as well as the Splatoon 2 bundle), the pink Joy-Con is on the right, and the green controller is on the left. Nintendo is flipping the colors for the standalone release in the states. Not sure why, but there you go.


Original (1/5): Nintendo has confirmed that the Neon Pink and Neon Green Joy-Con will begin to be offered as a standalone product in North America this month. Previously, the controllers were limited to the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle.

Nintendo shared today’s news on Twitter:


The Neon Pink / Neon Green Joy-Con could begin to appear in stores as early as today. They were listed in EB Games Canada’s internal inventory system for January 5.

    It should be noted that this particular joy-con weren’t actually part of the Splatoon 2 bundle. These are opposite colors, similar to how the Neon Switch and Neon joy-con pack were handled.

    Which makes me all the more excited, because now I can have matching green and pink sets 😀

    Guess that’s cool. I couldn’t careless about the colors of my Joy-Cons.

    Neat but not the 5th.

    Not only does it work to coincide with the success of Splatoon 2 but it also fits with Kirby: Star Allies and Yoshi coming out this year.

    Now they’re proper Callie and Marie Joycon.
