HonSon Group currently offers accessories for Switch as well as numerous other platforms. Interestingly, the Chinese company now appears to be claiming that it has products on the way for a Switch Mini.

There are also listings on the company’s website with various images. We don’t believe the photos to have any legitimacy as they incorporate fan mockups of a possible Switch Mini. That doesn’t necessarily indicate HonSon isn’t making these new accessories though.
