Here are some must-have accessories for your new Nintendo Switch
The Nintendo Switch is one of the world’s best-selling consoles, having shipped more than 100 million units since it launched in 2017. If you’re one of the millions of people that own the hybrid system, odds are you already have everything you need. However, if you’re someone who just recently picked up the console — or you’re currently looking to purchase one in lieu of hard to find consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X — there are a handful of accessories that will make your gaming experience far more enjoyable (and convenient).
Whether you need a controller, case, or pair of headphones, we’ve rounded up the best accessories you can buy to supplement your experience gaming on the Nintendo Switch.
Regardless of which model you purchase, the Nintendo Switch makes for a pretty amazing experience right out of the box. That said, there are a few staples we recommend picking up if you want to get a little more mileage out of the Switch, the portable-only Switch Lite, or the newer Switch OLED model, even if each model comes with everything you need to get started.
The following, in no specific order, are some of the things we think can help you make the most of Nintendo’s latest system. Just note that while most of these accessories can be used with any Switch model, there are some, like the Hori Split Pad Pro and Genki Covert Dock, that won’t work with the Switch Lite.
A few nice things
While certainly not essential, these accessories are great if you’re looking for something a little fancier, or a peripheral that solves a very specific issue with the Switch.
