Nintendo Switch Accessory Prices Are Steep, $80 For Additional JoyCons

Don't lose your JoyCons, because it'll cost you to replace them.

Tonight during its press event, Nintendo announced that the Nintendo Switch will retail for $299. That package includes the system, two JoyCons, the JoyCon Grip, the Switch Dock, an AC adapter, and an HDMI cable. But what if you wanted to upgrade your Switch action with some more accessories?

Be prepared to pay for it. According to the official site, an additional JoyCon L or JoyCon R will set you back $49.99. Buying a pair of additional JoyCons costs $79.99 and they come in all Grey, all Blue, all Red, or the Red/Blue set. The JoyCon Grip costs $29.99 if you want to pick another one up. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is a standalone purchase for $69.99.

The Nintendo Switch Dock doesn't actually add anything to the system, as it's just a USB and HDMI hub. If you want a second Dock for another room in your home though, that'll cost you $89.99 and includes the Dock, an AC adapter, and an HDMI cable.

There's also the JoyCon Wheel, which comes in a set of 2 for $14.99. Like the Wii Wheel, this is a bit of plastic you can set your JoyCons in to play racing games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I envision the JoyCons being a hot item for Nintendo. Especially if you're in a family with kids, the JoyCons are relatively tiny controllers that are likely to be lost. At $50 a pop or $80 for two, it's best to keep them attached to the system or the handy wrist straps at all times.
