Snakebyte Announces Nintendo Switch Accessories

Snakebyte Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is on the horizon and on the minds of both consumers and companies alike. Snakebyte, a developer of hardware for electronics is getting an early start with some new items specifically geared to the handheld/home console hybrid. Not only that, but they also shared some new items coming designed for the Mini NES.

Nintendo Switch Foldable Headset

Ideal for on-the-go gaming, the Foldable Headset features powerful 40mm drivers for crisp, clear gaming audio. Neatly folds up when travelling, making it the perfect companion to your Switch tablet.

Featuring all the essential accessories a gamer could ask for, the Starter Kit features a Carry Bag, Stereo Earbuds, Cleaning Cloth, Screen Protector, Control Caps, and Game Cases to allow for an enhanced gaming experience and protection for the tablet screen and games.

Both of these items seem to seek to enhance the portability of the Switch, with emphasis on toughness during long trips. Personally, I can’t wait to see what all the Switch is capable of and I will definitely be looking for a way to protect the device and my other accessories and games.

Nintendo NES Classic Edition Power Adapter

The NES Classic Edition is cleverly powered via USB, however sometimes a convenient USB power source is simply unavailable. The NES Classic Edition Power Adapter accepts the USB cord from the console and allows users to draw power from any regular power outlet.

Nintendo NES Classic Edition Gamepad Extension Cable

Gamers love the authentic NES gamepad but are saddened at the short length of the cable. The NES Classic Edition Gamepad Extension Cable makes couch play a reality once again, instantly adding a generous 9.8 feet to your NES gamepad length!

Basically the biggest downfall to the Mini NES (aside from the limited library of games of course) is the cable on the controllers. Any way to extend that range is a welcome addition to the console! I think I’d rather save up for a AVS system, but I will say that there is obvious appeal in the Mini NES. Now, if only they weren’t so hard to come by!

These accessories are coming in Spring 2017, with an emphasis of the Switch pieces launching alongside the console for added protection on Day One. Check out the rest of Snakebyte’s catalog on their website.
