Hi,

I was wondering, if anyone here can recommend black replacement shells for the Joy-Cons?
I'm looking for black shells, which preferbly match the black shell color from the Switch itself.

The devkit Joy-Cons are doing just that and I try to replicate this look - here is what it looks like:

I can find black replacement shells just fine online but nobody made pictures of them installed and hooked to the tablet, so I can't tell what the color is like compared to the Switch.

Maybe one of you guys aimed for the same goal :)

Thanks and regards,
FR0ZN

I know about those but I don't know how good they match the black from the switch.

+1 for the recommendation @Hayato213 made.

I can provide pictures of my console with them fitted if it helps.

That would be awesome, can you try to make pictures of the back of the switch as well, with them attached? That sould give the best impression about the color accuracy.

Sure. Will upload in a few hours. Just to note though I also have the backplate of the same colour (from the same supplier) fitted to my switch as well.

I can take a picture of the top of it so you can see the difference between the soft touch backplate and the front frame around the touchscreen. It’s slightly different but not all that noticeable. I would say the tactile feel of the soft touch shells is worth the slight difference.

Edit: @FR0ZN - see attached
