Here in Canada, they are 65$ for one or 100$ for 2, so I was wondering,
do you think we will see third party joycon that will be cheaper?
Remember that we saw that with the Wii and their Wiimotes
I really hope there will be some, because i cant really afford them for such high price

I have no idea what goes at this point, however I would not be surprised to see Nintendo take a leaf out of MS' playbook and block off unofficial offerings via a chip. This would then mean third parties could exist but either for hacked consoles (something I am not sure I have ever seen for a controller), should the chips be suitably reverse engineered, those deemed OK by Nintendo, those piggybacking off an existing controller (see all those adapters that see you have to plug a controller in anyway) or that take official controllers, take them apart and build on top of that a la the Evil Controllers.

Hopefully I am wrong and people are able to make their own like the wii or something but that might be more optimistic than I care to be at this point.
