Nintendo Switch Must Have Accessories
For this article I wanted to put together a simple list for those who have a Nintendo Switch or for those who plan on getting one as a Switch owner myself there are a few items I got to try out and would like to leave a recommendation for you.
Let’s get started:
The First most important item I recommend is a Screen Protector the last thing you want is to damage the screen on your brand new $300 system
Avoid: (Nintendo Switch Official Screen Protection Kit by PDP) (Reasons item overlaps the Nintnedo Switch screen)
Recommend: Nintendo Switch Screen Protector Glass (Amazon)
Another item I recommend is the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Retails $70 now yes it’s a bit pricey however it’s worth having non the less after playing Legend of Zelda along with other titles my hands started to cramp however having the Pro controller at the ready was a big help and has some hidden futures.
A Case is also a must have item for the Nintendo switch and there are so many to chose from I recommend the Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case by RDS Industries This is a affordable case with different option for designs to chose from going at $20 and provides a nice hard shell case to protector the system when traveling or just when not in use
The last item that you will need is an additional Micro SD Card. Why? you may ask well the Nintendo Switch has 32 GB of internal storage after the system set up you will only have 26 GB left and some games like Legend of Zelda are 13 GB if you chose to stay as a digital download user however I recommend buying physical copies to save space but sometimes games may only appear in a download only option.
Therefor I recommend you get a Micro SD card with a minuminum storage of 128 GB such as the SanDisk – Extreme PLUS 128GB microSDXC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card read speeds up to 95MB/sec; write speeds up to 90MB/sec however I recommend looking on amazon or even BestBuy for sales for Example Black Friday sales at the end of the year always has great deals on large Micro SD Cards
This next item is 100% optional Nintendo Switch Elite Player Backpack by PDP
The only reason I say this is optional is because I feel as though if you wanted to take your Nintendo Switch on the go and carry everything including the dock then this backpack is designed for that reason + there is extra storage for your laptop item retails for $50 however is a messenger bag is more your style one can be found for $40 but has less storage.
There you have it keep in mind if money is short then go for only the glass screen protector and the case to insure your Nintendo Switch is protected and gather the other items later on.
