These Are The Best Nintendo Switch Accessories You Can Buy

Accessories are almost like modding, making something good even better.

So if you’re one of the lucky people that got a Nintendo Switch on the launch day you are one lucky person. Have fun with the latest and most complete console you can buy.

But you know what would make it even better? Upgrades. Upgrades in the form of accessories.

Here is a list of must-haves to either protect and improve your Nintendo Switch.

Travel Accessories.

The Nintendo Switch is made for use everywhere. Sitting at home, traveling in public transport, going to your grandparents, break at work or school. But what if you’re not using it and need to safely move it without scratching/damaging it?

Everything fits neatly into the designated foam slots, protecting every part of the Switch against bumps and the weather.


Nintendo went ahead and expected you to have friends, that’s why they give you 2 controllers with every Switch purchase. The Joy-Cons are great, but with so many people, they have different opinions. One likes the given Joy-Con controllers, someone else would rather have a ‘traditional’ controller. For people who like Mario Kart you can get a wheel where you can insert one of your Joy-Con’s.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller – $70

When you want a more ‘traditional’ approach playing games, this Pro controller is of excellent use.

Protect Your Switch.

Although i don’t really see people putting their Switch inside their pockets alongside some keys, it is important to know it will last at least some endurance. You can protect the screen in 2 ways, plastic cover or glass cover.

Glass protectors are better quality than the plastic ones, but they come at a more expensive price. But even putting it in the dock can cause some small scratches, so if you want to be risk-free, order one. You’ll hate yourself when the first scratches are on.

Nintendo Switch Official Screen Protection Kit – $7,99

Nintendo’s official screen protector. Scratch resistant and anti-smudge. Includes screen protector, applicator and cleaning cloth.

Enhance your Switch.

The Nintendo Switch only has a mediocre 32GB of storage space. For a phone that can be fine, but we’re talking games here. Even Nintendo itself advises to buy an SD-card. Thankfully the world of Micro-SD has been going steady long before the Switch, so we have a lot to choose from.

Samsung EVO+ 256GB Micro SD – $149.

If you want to go bezerk, then buy this. With 256GB you are set for a long while as it will hold a lot of games installed at the same time. Since the Switch doesn’t have much games available now it might be overkill, but you will be set for the future of what to come.

SanDisk Ultra 128GB Micro SD – $40,99.

Probably the better choice as it is a lot cheaper. With 128GB there is still a lot of room left to bust some moves and way cheaper than Samsung’s 256GB EVO+. If you want to go real cheap, lets say $15, then there is always a possibility to go for an even smaller one.
