Custom accessory outlet ColorWare has launched orders for a limited version of the Nintendo Switch’s Joy Con controller, modelled on the old-school aesthetics of the NES.
Priced at $199 US (plus shipping), ColorWare say “The NES took a niche hobby and brought it into everyone’s living room. ColorWare is bringing back these memories with the release of our limited Joy Con Classic controllers. Available for a limited time only with the first 25 having a number of authenticity. Don’t miss your chance to own these unique custom made Joy Cons.”
“Enjoy solo or group gameplay with these Limited Edition Nintendo Joy-Con wireless controllers. Made to work with your existing Nintendo Switch system, these sturdy units come with integrated accelerometers, gyro sensors and buttons for an immersive gaming experience. Woven wrist straps keep these Nintendo Joy-Con wireless controllers firmly in your hands.”
Ordinary Joy-Con controllers retail in Australia for $69 individually or $119 as a pair. Nintendo also released a new “Yellow” set of Joy-Cons to promote the release of the Switch’s new fighting game ARMS.
