Nintendo Switch Lineup
PixelQuest Arcade Kit
PixelQuest Arcade Kit is a buildable, playable recreation of a traditional arcade cabinet compatible with the Nintendo Switch and two Joy-Cons. Recreate a retro arcade cabinet with sheets of corrugated cardboard and individual die cut components, then personalize it with the included sheets of pixel block stickers.
The kit comes with two balltop joysticks custom fit to attach to the Joy-Con analog sticks for a throwback experience. The Joy-Con slots contain mechanical button remapping allowing players to press the shoulder buttons on the Joy-Cons while keeping the traditional button configuration of a classic arcade machine. Other features include cut-out ventilation slits and a working coin slot that doubles as a piggy bank.
PixelQuest Arcade Kit will be available this Fall for an MSRP of $19.99 and will soon be available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
Intercooler Stand for Switch
Continuing Nyko’s tradition of cooling products for gaming electronics, Intercooler Stand for Switch features a unique design that enables the Switch to dock horizontally while increasing airflow to the console. Built-in proximity sensors will automatically activate the fans when a Switch is placed in the dock, ensuring the console is properly ventilated even when placed near other heated electronics in an entertainment center. Additionally, a dedicated power button can turn off the fans when docked and not playing while integrated cable management keeps everything nice and tidy. Intercooler Stand for Switch will be available this Summer for an MSRP of $29.99 and will soon be available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
Wireless Core Controller for Switch
Cut the cord with the Wireless Core Controller for Switch. Wireless Core Controller features the programmable turbo functionality of last year’s wired Core Controller alongside additional enhancements including a gyroscope motion sensor, built-in rumble, rechargeable battery with up to 20 hours of playtime, and USB Type-C charging. It is compatible with all “Pro Controller” Switch titles with additional support for Android devices (via Bluetooth) and PC (when plugged in via USB). Wireless Core Controller for Switch will be available at Nyko.com and Amazon for an MSRP of $29.99 and will soon be available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
Thin Case for Switch (Clear)
Nyko’s popular Thin Case now comes in Clear so as to retain the Switch’s original color. Ultra thin protection, dockable, and keeps Joy-Cons protected without having to remove anything. Thin Case protects the exterior of the Switch and Joy-Con without adding bulk, offering an ultra-portable, dockable solution with a tempered-glass screen protector to prevent blemishes and impact damage.
