Nintendo also revealed a brand new Joy Con colour – Neon Yellow. You might have noticed it at the top of this article 😉
This not-so-subtle hue is due on June 16th. It also lands at the same time as a new Joy Con battery pack.
I didn’t notice if they actually mentioned quite how much extra life this pack will add to the Joy Con’s current 20-hour charge life.
There is also a new third party accessory.
InDemand Design’s SwitchCharge will add extended game-play time amongst other features.
The device in currently being funded on IndieGoGo, where it has smashed its $80k goal.
