Nintendo Switch owners will no doubt jump for joy when they see the new range of Pokemon Switch accessories just announced by peripheral masters, Hori.
We all know that console customisation is one of the greatest pleasures a gamer can have, especially when you can pimp up your unit with gear based on your favourite characters.
If you’re a regular Retro Dodo reader, then you’ll no doubt have come across Hori controllers before.
We’ve featured their wired and dockable controllers over in our list of the best Nintendo Switch controllers, an article that will surely need a few extra controllers adding thanks to the companies latest Poké-licious announcement.
New Pokemon Switch Accessories To Pimp Up Your Nintendo Switch!
You can imagine our surprise when, while scrolling through Twitter before we started planning our content for the day, we came across a whole host of new Pokemon Switch accessories dropping in the Holiday 2020 season!
It makes me want to start playing Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu all over again!
What New Releases Can We Expect?
Here’s the official tweet that has made us so excited before 9am… a rare event here at Retro Dodo towers.
Feast your eyes on that collection!
From Pro controller style gamepads to table-top stands, the new Hori/Nintendo partnership is set to bring some epic new Pokemon Switch accessories into our lives before the year is out.
One thing that I should mention at this point as that all of the controllers, stands, cases, and protectors above are officially licensed Nintendo products.
They have all been approved by Ninty themselves, so they aren’t going to fry, scratch, or destroy your beloved Switch in any way.
New Pokemon Switch Controllers
One of Hori’s most sought after controllers is the Split Pad Pro, giving you all the power and feel of a Pro controller but in handheld mode.
These dockable joycons are superb and provide a much more comfortable gaming session than the original Joycons.
You can buy them in a shocking black and yellow Pikachu design, or opt for the more calm and collected Pika and Eevee set.
Of course, if you’re planning on throwing a Joycon to catch your favourite Pokemon, then you’ll be better off with the original mini Joycon design.
Hori has given the original controller a bit of a jolt too, decorating it with the new Pika lightning bolt design.
Other New & Exciting Accessories
When you’ve finished drooling over the HoriPad Mini controllers and the protective armour that you can use to bulk up your Switch, you can decide whether you want to keep your Switch in this fun, character-filled case or display it in on a table-top PlayStand for all to see.
Sadly, the case doesn’t come pre-filled with happy little Pokemon waiting to jump out and enrich our lives.
Looks like we’ll have to do the hard work and fill our Pokedexes up the good-old-fashioned way!
Where Can I Get My Hands On These Pokemon Switch Accessories?
Budding trainers and bonafide Pokemon Champions alike can start getting psyched up for pre-order information dropping on the Hori website.
With pre-orders set for Holiday 2020, we can expect some news coming very soon!
Keep your eyes on the prize, and hopefully, you’ll be able to catch ’em all!
