The Joy-Con will get a Neon Yellow color option, but Nintendo also unveiled a special battery grip accessory for it. In around a month, the standalone Switch dock should hit the market in limited quantities.

Despite the reported problems, Nintendo's Switch is a successful game console/tablet hybrid. The Japanese brand has recently unveiled a few new accessories for the Switch, including a special battery grip and a new color option for the controllers, as well as the limited availability of the Switch dock.

The Joy-Con battery grip accessory will come in sets of two, and its purpose is to further increase the 20-hour autonomy of the controllers. To make everything more appealing, Nintendo will also offer a Neon Yellow color option for the Joy-Con controllers. This option is scheduled to become available on June 16 for both the controllers and the Joy-Con strap.

At last, the Switch dock is scheduled to go on sale as a standalone accessory in about a month, on May 19. However, it will only be available in "limited quantities." The dock cannot be purchased separately at this time, and only one comes in the retail package of the Nintendo Switch. Since many users enjoy moving around their houses from a TV to another without having to disconnect, carry, connect the dock each time, offering only the dock for purchase is a good idea.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
