Best Boxing Day deals for Switch accessories
If your Switch is suffering from the dreaded Joy-Con drift, or you just need a spare pair of controllers, there are some great Boxing Day deals available for the Switch’s controllers.
Almost every possible colour of the Joy-Con is currently on sale for $85, so you can save yourself just shy of $35. You can grab a new pair of controllers here:
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has also been discounted by 25%, and you can pick it up for $75.
You can also pick up a deluxe Nintendo Switch Game Traveller travel case for $39.95 and save yourself $20. This case is big enough that it can hold your Switch, the charging dock, AC adaptor and Joy-Cons, and includes two separate cases for your games.
If you aren’t too fond of the Pro Controller or want a more versatile option, 8BitDo’s excellent range of Bluetooth gamepads is also on sale. These are great alternative controllers, and some might argue that they’re better than the official Nintendo ones.
