    Nintendo just posted some pictures on Twitter that neon yellow Joy-Cons will be released alongside with ARMS.

    I think more colors are going to be released soon. Expect neon green or so!

    Also, they annonced that the Joy-Cons will be getting some battery packs that will be powered by AA-batteries. They will be released on 16th June, at least in Japan. The price is 3280 yen - around 30 Euros and Dollars - without taxes (I think?)

    That's cool and all but do the joycons really need a battery pack? I thought they had a pretty good duration when charged?

    I don't know, I don't have a Switch. But my friend who has one said that the Joy-Cons are pretty good and last long. It would be better if the Switch console itself has gotten a battery pack.

    But I think the battery pack should also add a nice grip to the Joy-Cons, and with the battery pack, the Joy-Cons get thicker.

    I hope the battery pack also includes an antenna pack.

    joycons last 20 hours each unless for arms since its probably very hd rumble they last less? thats my guess but yeah right now 20 hours batery hardly qualifies as a need to buy a bigger batery lol.
