With a new version of the Nintendo Switch out in the wild and the smaller Nintendo Switch Lite releasing on September 20th, it seems that Joy-Cons have become an afterthought to Nintendo. With new color schemes being scarce, players have begged the company to provide some creative pairs of the detachable controllers. Fortunately, a new pair of neon green Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons seem to be arriving at Best Buy.
A listing for the Joy-Con set has appeared on Best Buy’s official website, with reports saying that these will be exclusive to the retailer. Switch owners in North America can now pre-order the controllers, which have a release date of October 27th.
Before this listing, obtaining both a left and right green Joy-Con proved very difficult. While consumers in North America and Europe could purchase a right version separately, a set containing the left version would have to be imported from Japan.
Along with the green set, other colors will release on October 4th. One pair will contain a blue and neon yellow Joy-Con, while the other will have one neon orange and one neon purple Joy-Con.
This listing comes on the verge of multiple Switch owners reporting issues with Joy-Con analog sticks drifting during gameplay, otherwise known as Joy-Con Drift. While Nintendo is offering free repairs to owners experiencing this problem, some might just use the excuse to buy some new colors.
