I'm honestly hoping either Nintendo or a third party company releases an adapter that will allow you to use the "docked" mode without the dock. Without knowledge of how the dock actually works we can be sure if this is even possible. As long as the dock itself doesn't contain any specialized hardware to convert the USB C connection to video out, it should be fairly simply to have a small dongle cable that connects to the Switch's USB C port and have both an HDMI output and USB C in for charging. That would make it much easier to always have the home console version available if you are somewhere that has a tv, without having to brick the entire dock with you. As for joy-cons, I can definitely see Nintendo releasing different color flavors and possibly themed joy-cons. Kind similar to how they have the different versions of wiimotes. Are there any other adapters or specialty joy-cons you think or hope nintendo will release?
