I’ve been eyeing the Nintendo Switch since it released earlier this year and I finally was able to purchase one thanks to money and giftcards I got for Christmas. Tuesday morning I woke up at 7am and drove to Target (had to actually drive to 2 locations before I was able to get one) and purchased the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as my first game. I had been planning on buying one possibly around Christmas time so I started doing research on what games to buy and accessories a week or so beforehand, so here’s what I got.
First up is a carrying case. What I like about this is that it has an area to hold all of my games (so far besides Zelda I also got Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8) and it also came with a screen protector which was really is to put on. When I’m not playing or charging the system, it’s pretty much always in this case. When I originally purchased it it came in blue, solid black, and red. I purchased mine from Amazon, here for $17.99.
Instead of using my usual gaming headset I wanted something that was much more portable. So I picked up these Zelda earbuds on ebay for $10! They fit perfectly in the case and the sound quality isn’t that bad. The exact seller I purchased them from doesn’t seem to have any currently, but there are other sellers currently selling them. You can also find them in most retail stores like Target, but I”m not sure about the price.
The final and probably my favorite accessory is the LED dock shield. It comes with 2 plates currently, Zelda and Mario but I’m hoping they’ll add more in the future. I really love the extra flair it adds to my desk. You can rotate between a variety of colors or just pick a single color (I personally like the fading rotation of the colors!). My only real complaint about it is that the protective blue film that was on both plates was really hard to take off but once you got it off you could really see how beautiful it looks! It was $15.99 on Amazon, can find it here.
Overall I’m really happy with the Nintendo Switch and the accessories I’ve purchased for it so far, I’m excited to see what games and other things Nintendo comes out for it in 2018. The only other accessory that I ordered that hasn’t arrived yet is a dock cover (for when I’m not using the LED one) which I purchased on Etsy.
