It’s no secret that both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite have been flying off the shelves since both systems launched. And, the recording breaking sales do not look like they will stop anytime soon. There’s a pretty good chance you or someone you know owns a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite.
Now that you have a Switch or Switch Lite, there are some accessories you should consider picking up. You might not have thought of it but the types of games you like to play will influence the accessories you buy. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best game and accessories combos for your Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pro Controller
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is seen by many, including myself, as one of the best-built controllers. It’s generally priced higher than the standard controllers for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 but it’s an investment that can significantly improve your game.
Fast action fighting games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate benefit the most from using the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Not only does it feel better in your hands as compared to the Joy-Con controllers, it also allows you to pull off moves faster and with more consistency. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has very responsive gyro capabilities and larger shoulder buttons. And, it even includes an amiibo reader so you easily scan in your favourites to supported games.
Naturally, there are many other games that benefit from using the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. These include Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Diablo III Enteral Collection, Overwatch Legendary Edition, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. These are just a handful of games that control better with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. If you’re serious about gaming, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the best game and accessory combos out there.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Neon Green Joy-Con Controllers
If you’re a fan of Luigi’s Mansion 3, another option is to pick-up these pair of Best Buy Canada exclusive Neon Green Joy-Con Controllers. Both Luigi and Gooigi sport the fabulous green colour and you’ll be gaming in style using these Neon Green Joy-Con controllers.
Compared to the standard Joy-Con Controllers, these Luigi’s Mansion 3 inspired Joy-Cons really look vibrant. Luigi and and Gooigi themselves would be proud to use them.
Super Mario Maker 2 and Hyperking Armor3 Travel Kit
With the ability to play Switch games at home or on-the-go, odds are you’ll be taking your Switch with you on your daily travels. Super Mario Maker 2 is one of my go-to games for daily commutes and long car rides. With that being said, I take great preventing my Switch from getting bumped or scratched.
To help minimize the risk of my Switch getting damaged, I use the HyperKin Armor3 Travel Kit. It comes with a screen protector to stop the Switch screen from getting scratched. Additionally, the HyperKin Armor3 Travel Kit comes with a durable protective travel case. This way I know my Switch will be safe from getting damaged either by scratches or bumps.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Joy-Con Wheel
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is arguably the best racing game on the Switch. And, just as they did for Mario Kart on Wii, Nintendo has released a wheel peripheral for Switch. They work in a quite similar fashion, you snuggly fit your Joy-Con Controller into the Joy-Con Wheel and use motion controls to steer.
What I really like about the Joy-Con Wheel package is that it comes with two wheels. And, each wheel uses one Joy-Con controller. So, this means you can play 2-players out of the box. If you’ve got little ones that you are playing with, you’ll be glad to know that these are well-suited for children’s little hands. As a result, this makes the Joy-Con Wheel and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe one of the best game and accessory combos for your little ones.
The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening and Hyperking Travel Kit for Switch Lite
The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening is a HD remake of a classic Gameboy game. Gameplay has been updated and one of the many new features is the ability to add pins on the overworld map. This makes it easy to go to places and see the important people you need to talk to.
As you may know, the Nintendo Switch Lite is specifically designed to play your favourite games on-the-go. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s not susceptible to damage. The Hyperkin Travel Kit for Switch Lite includes 11 items to help keep your Switch Lite safe while traveling and to make gaming a breeze. Among the many items included, notable mentions are a screen protector, hard-shell travel case and silicone skin. As a Switch Lite owner, this is one of the best game and accessory combos I can recommend.
Nintendo Switch Digital Game Downloads and a 128GB Memory Card
If you’re in the mood for a brand new game, why not consider one of the many Nintendo Switch digital game downloads? You can safely and securely purchase your favourite digital Nintendo Switch game from the comfort of your home. And, you can download them on to your system with the code you receive in your purchase email.
You might be surprised to find out that some games are only available digitally and not sold in stores. Noteable digital only games include Cuphead, Unravel Two, Untitled Goose Game and Little Nightmares Complete Edition. In addition, you can also buy purchase game add-ons like expansion packs and DLC.
The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite both come with 32GB of internal storage. However, that is shared with system updates, saves, game screenshots and videos. By the time all is said and done, you aren’t left with a whole lot of internal storage space. To remedy this problem, I highly suggest the 128GB Nintendo Switch branded SanDisk memory card. This will allow you to download and save digital games on to it. Game sizes vary but on average you can expect to fit between 10-15 digital games on this memory card.
