Do you find yourself looking at your Joy Con controllers and thinking “You’re cool, but I wish you looked cooler!”. Well, have we got the product for you. The folks over at ColorWare have created some NES themed Joy Cons for those of you looking for a cool retro themed addition to your Switch. The ColorWare site states:
“In 1985 Nintendo revolutionized the home entertainment industry by releasing the Nintendo Entertainment System. The NES took a niche hobby and brought it into everyone’s living room. ColorWare is bringing back these memories with the release of our limited Joy Con Classic controllers. Available for a limited time only with the first 25 having a number of authenticity. Don’t miss your chance to own these unique custom made Joy Cons.”
The Joy Cons come with everything that you expect of normal Switch Joy Cons; an accelerometer, a gyro-sensor, buttons. The controllers come in their own packaging, and the first 25 are individually numbered. Something which confuses me as the whole collection is “limited”. The controllers sport a lovely grey and black colour scheme.
How much will these awesome sounding controllers set you back? Well, the pair will set you back $199. That’s right; $200 for a set of Joy Cons.
Are they cool? Hell yeah. Are they worth $200? I’m honestly not so sure, but let me know your thoughts in the comments below or tweet me @bulletin_ben!
