Best Nintendo Switch carry cases


Best Nintendo Switch carry cases

Nintendo Switch is a massive hit, that’s for sure. In January 2018, it was revealed that the console had become the fastest selling game console in US history. Selling a massive 4.8 Million units since its March 2017 release.

The main selling point of the Switch has to be its portability. Being able to play games such as Zelda, Splatoon and Skyrim on the go is a game changer for most. Especially for people who travel or spend time away from home.

With portability, we all want a way to carry our Nintendo Switch in style, whilst being able to still hold all of the necessities such as Joy-Cons, Game Cartridges, Chargers and even the Dock on some occasions.

You want to provide protection to your device too, and ensure its easy to carry. That’s why in this article, we’re going to give you a glimpse of some of the best carry cases currently on the market! All the links here will link back to Amazon, as it’s mostly worldwide and easier for everyone.

This case is similar to the previous one we mentioned, except it is slightly bigger, has more slots for cartridges and a zipped pouch. It offers a hard, protective outer casing reducing the risk of damage if you happen to drop the Switch. Also helps if it gets tossed around at security inside an airport. I use this one myself, although it’s by a different brand in the UK. This case can hold up to 20 cartridges, and has a small zip compartment for your Joy-Cons and cables. It’s available on the Amazon Marketplace. On Amazon US, it’s sold by Hestia Goods.
