Best Nintendo Switch Case 2021: Top Picks For Switch, Switch OLED, And Switch Lite

A good Nintendo Switch case is key to protecting your Switch or Switch Lite from damage.


As a hybrid console and handheld device, the Nintendo Switch needs a bit more protection than other consoles that stay in one spot for years. Unless you leave the console in the dock forever and only play with a Switch controller, you're going to want a solid Nintendo Switch case. In fact, it's probably the first accessory you should buy alongside the console. Nintendo Switch carrying cases protect your console from damage--a simple screen protector won't help with every kind of accident. We've put together a list of the best Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite cases, and many of them are regularly discounted at Amazon. Many of these cases will also be compatible with the upcoming Nintendo Switch OLED.

The Switch OLED is only slightly larger than the Nintendo Switch, so most existing Switch cases will work just fine. However, form-fitting cases and grips will likely have compatibility issues. At this time, there aren't a ton of OLED cases, but there is an official case from Nintendo that costs $20.

Besides standard carrying cases, we've also included some of the best Switch grips for handheld mode. After picking out the best Nintendo Switch case for you, check out our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories to find more helpful products for your Switch. We also have dedicated lists for the best Nintendo Switch controllers and best Switch screen protectors.
