Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers will soon have new color options

Nintendo Switch owners will soon be able to choose from three new Joy-Con controller color options. Maybe Nintendo can make them more durable while they’re at it?

The colors include blue/neon yellow and neon purple/neon orange Joy-Con controller sets. Each will be available on October 4 for the standard Joy-Con price of $79.99.

Neon yellow is not technically new, although it is normally bundled with another neon yellow Joy-Con. The other colors are all new.

The purple and orange are apparently inspired by the GameCube, which had indigo and “spice orange” color options for the console itself and the system’s controllers.

Nintendo has had a busy day of announcements. They first revealed that a new Nintendo Switch model has up to 9-hour battery life and followed it up with the news that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is coming out on Halloween.

Last week, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, a smaller, more affordable, and handheld-only version of the Switch.
