One of the main complaints I’ve seen from most gamers about the Nintendo Switch is that it’s somewhat awkward to hold in portable mode because the Joy-Cons aren’t really ergonomic and don’t fit into your hand the way a regular controller might. It’s a small problem, but it’s very noticeable if you have large hands.
That’s what this new Kickstarter idea is attempting to fix. Skull & Co has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the SwitchCase, which they describe as an all-in-one case designed to make your Switch easier to hold while you’re on the go. Check out the video below.
The developers are asking for just shy of $12,000 Aussie Dollars to get the project funded and it’s already been 42% funded at the time of writing, so it seems likely that this thing will meet its goal.
I’d like to mention that hardware Kickstarters have a notoriously high failure rate and while I’m not saying this Kickstarter will fail, I’d be wary about backing a hardware Kickstarter. A pledge of $29 or more will get you the early bird special, but if you miss that you’ll have to pledge $39 to get the case. Their estimated delivery time is October 2017, but we all know how that goes when it comes to Kickstarter.
Would you consider backing this project?
