The gaming scene has started to step up its accessibility options as of late for those impaired by disabilities, and the trend now continues with a new accessory from HORI.

Released in Japan today is the Nintendo-licensed Hori Flex switch and joystick interface. It connects through a wire to a Switch or PC. As noted by OneSwitch, standard accessibility switches can be attached, along with a few USB joysticks. Users can also take advantage of a remapping app to program six Switch systems, and six different Windows PC configurations.

Pricing is set at about $230. Check out a few photos in the gallery below.

Nintendo and Amazon have teamed up in a bit of an interesting way. Throughout November, you may find that a package you’ve ordered from the retailer has arrived in a box themed after Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo says that “the Super Mario Bros. branded Amazon boxes are in limited quantity and will be used randomly, while supplies last.” Furthermore, buying a Nintendo product won’t increase the chance of receiving the branded box.

Outside of the box, there’s another small aspect of the partnership. Amazon has opened a page here where My Nintendo members can earn 100 Platinum Points. The Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary page lets you look at various Mario products, view a history of the franchise, and find hidden trivia.
