Animal Crossing Switch Dock And Joy-Cons Are Sold Out, But They Are Expected To Return
Hopefully these Animal Crossing: New Horizons accessories release in the US, too.
The Animal Crossing: New Horizons-themed Switch console is almost too cute. As an owner of a launch model Switch, I'm trying to talk myself into buying it. Mainly I want one for the wonderful design, but the practical reason I'm trying to use is that it's the updated model with better battery life. However, $300 is a lot to ask for a console you already have. Nintendo is selling the Switch dock and Joy-Con separately, but so far they have only been confirmed for release in Japan. [Update: Both the Joy-Con and dock are sold out, but stock is expected to replenish at some point.]
Both the Joy-Con and the dock release March 20--a week after the console releases--and will be available to pre-order from My Nintendo Store starting February 8. The Joy-Con cost roughly $75, and the dock costs about $60.
Unfortunately, Nintendo Japan only delivers domestically, so hopefully a store that ships internationally, such as Play Asia, will carry them as well. Of course, it'd be ideal if Nintendo just releases both the Joy-Con and the dock in the US.
Animal Crossing fans in the US will be able to get their hands on at least a few official accessories. Nintendo announced the New Horizons Aloha Edition carrying case alongside the console. It'll be available for both the Switch and Switch Lite for $25. You can also grab a pair of Power A Animal Crossing-themed wireless controllers. If you still need to pre-order your copy of the game, our New Horizons pre-order guide outlines all of the bonuses you can get at various retailers.
