In 2017, Nintendo introduced the Nintendo Switch, which revived the hand-held console gaming industry. Now, there are more than 2000 games available for players. So, you’ve got a Switch. But how do you make the most out of it? Here are some accessories to make your Nintendo Switch experience easier.

There are many accessories out there that make the Switch experience more accessible. Play Mario Kart with a steering wheel, and more! These are some of the accessories we’ve found useful for customising your Switch.

Nintendo Switch grips for easier control

Due to the console’s flat nature, you’ll need a little more support for your thumbs if you’re playing for hours. A set of Nintendo Switch thumb grips will help you control the console a little better, acting just like an Xbox console you’re familiar with. You can also rest your thumbs on the surface of the grips if you get tired. You’re also less likely to drop your switch, as it snugly fits into the grip.

A tempered glass screen protector for your screen

Sometimes, accidents happen. You might trip and drop your Switch, or have something spilt on it. Thankfully, tempered glass screen protectors are here to help. They prevent cracks, scratches and are waterproof, so your screen won’t sustain damage so easily when dropped or spilt on. However, you still have to be careful when handling your switch.
