    Takes all of two seconds to find on most China sites like AliExpress. Literally just have to search "joycon shell" and you'll find them.

    That listing is for a single joycon, the one I posted is for a pair.
    And its standard shipping from China, so 2-4 weeks

    Not nowadays, scalpers buy them and TRUE collectors can't buy them MSRP.

    I noticed it was for single when I tried adding one to my cart. :P Guess I'll just order the red mario set and a triwing set so I'll be set whenever I decide to purchase a Switch. Probably further down the road as there's really only 3 games out for it that I'd even play. Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids, and Splatoon 2. Already have Zelda on Wii U & not much of a Xenoblade Chronicles fan. Cheers. :)

    I laugh at this because the Platinum "Limited" Edition Gamecube ended up being the last and only GC variant they were producing at one point, and as a retail employee during that time, received only the "limited" edition Platinum Gamecubes in from a certain point on until they stopped producing them completely.

    There isn't a massive list of major games, but the eshop indie collection is massive. Though I understand not everyone is into those.

    Switch is a mean indie machine! The eShop's indie library is already fantastic and growing at a breakneck pace every week. Already over 400 games! Most of my Switch purchases have been indie games, and I don't regret any of it. So many great titles that are wondrous on the go, like Stardew Valley... need I say more? Not trying to be a fanboy, just expressing how much I've come to love my Switch as an indie machine.

    Celeste is also a great game to pick up on the switch.

    I bought Celeste a few days ago, and honestly for me it's the best game since Breath of the Wild. Almost at the end, and I've been loving every moment of it so far. So much heart!

    This isn't speculation, but it would be so cool if they bundled one with Metroid Prime 4. It's such an anticipated title, and that would be a really cool way to show they care about fans of that franchise. I myself haven't played Prime (I plan to!), and even I think that would be really nice.

    I wouldn’t be able handle using a custom color on my joycon controllers. The system knows what color your joycon is supposed to be and shows that when changing the controller type.

    Having the image on the screen not match the color of my controller would drive me insane.

    That's why you use joycon toolkit to change the colors on screen

    I personally stay with my modded ones for a while. And if Nintendo releases some better or interesting ones, I would buy them, like themed joycons „Pikachu Style“ or „SNES Style“.

    Well, I didn´t knew that. But it doesn´t matter. I said that because I really liked the silver look. I didn´t knew about those facts you said, I only said I loved the silver edition. It would be a cool design.

    That sadly it´s true. It has been a problem for quite some time now.
