Nintendo Now Has a Customization Program For the Switch

Because we're all suckers for the right colorway.

One of the fun things about the Nintendo Switch (aside from the games) are the brightly colored Joy-Cons. Now, we love Nintendo but they've made it hard to make nice color combinations available. That's all changed, however, with the Nintendo Switch Customize feature.

The Nintendo Switch Customize is limited to the Japanese My Nintendo Store. It allows you to purchase any combination of colors of both the Joy-Con and the Joy-Con strap, which is pretty exciting.

You can get the Joy-Con in 10 colors: gray, neon red, neon blue, neon yellow, neon green, neon pink, red, blue, neon purple, and neon orange. While the Joy-Con strap is available in seven colors: black, gray, neon red, neon blue, neon yellow, neon green, and neon pink.

At ¥32,978 (approximately P15,000), it's a sound deal—especially since it comes with gold points for the Nintendo eShop and you can even opt to get a discounted microSD card along with the decked-out console. Plus, use of the customization service entitles you to a coupon ¥3,000 (approximately P1,400). 


Sadly, like all good things, the customization service is currently only available in Japan. But, here's to hoping that Nintendo rolls this out worldwide soon. In the meantime, you can visit the My Nintendo Store to see all the possible colorways for your Switch.
