The Nintendo Switch has great games to play at home or on the go, including instant classics like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, your console experience could get even better if you upgrade it with accessories.
There are many types of accessories that you can buy for your Nintendo Switch, each with a different benefit. For new owners and those who have had the console since day one, here are three of the best Nintendo Switch accessories that you should have in your arsenal today.

A carrying case protects your Nintendo Switch from various types of damage, whether you have it on your desk where it might be chipped off, or whether you put it in your backpack where it is prone to scratches. The AmazonBasics carrying case, available for $ 11, also includes mounts for up to 10 game cartridges and a mesh pouch for cables, as well as a built-in stand to prop the console at a convenient angle while gaming.

The Nintendo Switch comes with two Joy-Cons, but additional controllers are always welcome to have more fun with multiplayer games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party. To make sure your Joy-Cons are always ready, be sure to hook them up to the TalkWorks Joy-Con charging dock, which sells for $ 18. The charging station can charge up to four controllers at the same time. LED indicators show whether the Joy-Cons are fully juiced and ready to fight.
– $ 26
There are so many great games for the Nintendo Switch that it's easy to fill its 32GB of internal storage. Fortunately, the console's storage can be expanded with microSD cards like the SanDisk 128GB microSDXC, which is available on Amazon for $ 26. The officially licensed microSD card, which is compatible with both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, offers additional space for installed games, storing files and video recordings. If you buy multiple microSD cards, you can easily access all of your games by swapping them out.
