Well, the company has just published its “buy” page for the Nintendo Switch and related accessories. And prices do seem a tad steep, to say the least.
No ad to show here.
For starters, those wanting the Pro Controller will need to splash out US$70, making for a big increase compared to the Wii U Pro Controller’s US$50 price tag.
Want an extra pair of JoyCon controllers? It’ll set you back US$70 as well, regardless of colour scheme. You can however buy a left or right controller only for US$50.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is rather steeply priced, it has to be said
As for the JoyCon charging grip? This accessory has a US$30 price tag.
Nintendo is also selling a Switch Dock Set separately, saying that this is ideal for those wanting to move their Switch around to multiple TVs in a household. The Dock Set, which includes the dock, HDMI cable and AC adapter, will cost US$90.
Interestingly enough, Nintendo is also selling a Joy-Con Wheel accessory, allowing you to place the controller in the wheel for racing games (much like the Wii wheel). These can be bought in a set of two for US$15 (without the JoyCon controllers, obviously).
