    Launching as a Kickstarter campaign this July 24th is the Grip Clip. This Nintendo Switch accessory aims to provide added comfort to the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and the company claims it feels "truly amazing in your hands". How much of that is true remains to be seen but when we were contacted by the creator, this project seemed interesting enough to keep an eye out for.

    Grip Clip - Back view.
    Grip Clip - Handheld 03. Grip Clip - Controller 03. Grip Clip - Split Joy-Con 01. Grip Clip - Split Joy-Con 02.
    As its name suggests, the Grip Clip clips on each Joy-Con to provide a better and more ergonomic grip for your gameplay sessions. It is also designed in such a way that makes it compatible in both handheld and docked mode.

    There is no word about the pricing at the time of writing but the official website does mention early bird discount. In any case, expect more details on the Kickstarter campaign linked below when it launched this July 24th.

    As nice as that looks, it’s only worth it if you don’t have a pro controller. No way would I be using those on the go, my switch wouldn’t fit in my case nor would the grips fit in the accessory pouch.

    Very nice. Looks like good quality plastic as well. I feel like it may be a tad too big though.

    Plus it seems to be useless if you ever need to use the joycons sideways which is a whole other problem for anyone with hands larger than a toddler

    This looks like a good alternative to the GripCase, but you'd still have to get a pouch that will fit them. The pouch designed for the GripCase would likely fit this too, the shape and size is similar.

    Shame that the switch is so poorly designed that kickstarters need to be created just to address its fundamental design flaws. :sad:

    Looks like cheap rubber coated plastic that will turn into a sticky mess in a year or two.

    I believe they were purposely going for a slim design. if you wanted some grips you would buy the dlc - joycon grips.

    I just hacked up the grip that came with the Switch and glued them directly to my joycons.

    Also I already have a set of grips similar to these that came from a chinese website...

    yup there are tons of stuff like this the only diference i can see is that it can be adapted to the joycon grip too to play in tv mode, which is kinda useless because if you prefer doing alot of tv mode just get a pro controller lol.
