New Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Color And Accessories Coming Soon

At today's jam-packed Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced three new hardware additions to their latest console, and they're just what fans have been asking for.

First, on May 19, a limited inventory of stand-alone Switch docks will be released to retailers. The pricey add-on had previously been out of stock, and is much appreciated by gamers who like to move their hardware between multiple televisions.

June 16 will bring a new Joy-Con color, Neon Yellow, and, more importantly, a battery pack for the Joy-Con controllers. These new products are set to launch on the same day as Arms, the upcoming Switch-exclusive fighting title.
