In what might be the most predictable third party product ever conceived, Colorware has started making Joy Con controllers in the classic NES style. The Switch’s Joy Con controllers adopt the style pretty well, possibly better than any other time this has been attempted. The console’s controllers already bore a passing resemblance to the small rectangular controllers of the NES, so bringing the style over was just a matter of not making it look like a bad copy-paste job. Colorware’s done well though, and we’re sure that if Nintendo had made the NES with fewer sharp angles, the controller would have probably ended up looking something like this. They work the same as the controllers that came with your Switch, so don’t expect any compatibility issues, but do expect these to sell out quickly. More details HERE.
