    Hello, so I just got my preorder in for the Nintendo Switch from Best Buy.

    Are there any Accessories I should get along side with it? Case, chargers, etc.

    Thanks.

    Extra joycons are too expensive. I am on a $50 budget.

    The only game I'm getting is Zelda because I am a little tight with my budget. The Switch costed $299 after all. I would like accessories like a case and a game holder.

    I thought you were only talking accessories and not game included. In that case go for the screen protector.

    You are being too general. I am asking for what specific accessories that I should get. Like anything from Amazon, best buy, or GameStop.

    I was thinking Nintendo including a charger with a new system seemed too good to be true ;3

    I picked up the BotW SE which comes with the coolest case we've seen so far for Switch. Other than that I'll be getting a charging joy con grip and one more set of joy cons at some point. That's $100 between those two things, but I'll be able to do 4-player games then, so not too bad. Or 2 players each with a set.

    Here is my Nintendo Switch List that I made from Amazon: http://a.co/fPInuJn

    Besides the Switch itself, it costs a total of around $180, which is just about $200, when I already paid $300 for the Switch.

    Honestly I just need a screen protector (glass preferred) and case for portability, which I'll wait for a few options on. I like hard cases with game slots.

    I think you'll need a power pack. I'm going to see if they come out with one you can plop your switch into.

    Do we know the Switch utilizes Qualcomm Quick Charge? Unless you have a device that utilizes it power banks that have it command a hefty premium.

    This Kamashi in 10k mA or 15K mA is much cheaper and highly rated except if you have a Nook. I have used a couple for the past six months and have been great. I bought six for stocking stuffers for family members this season.

    The thing is that I would like a USB-C charging bank as that is what the Switch uses.

    Even my Nexus 5X uses USB-C, how convenient!
