Today officially marks the opening day for E3 2017, the home of many games of this year and beyond, as well as accessories. One such accessory maker is Nyko, who appears to be all-in on the Nintendo Switch.
The company has revealed their line-up of six upcoming accessories for Nintendo’s hybrid platform, the first of which includes a dock.
The “Portable Docking Kit,” as Nyko calls it, is a more compact, elegant solution than Nintendo’s own dock, allowing for TV play without the bulk of the official Dock. The dock includes an HDMI cable and Type-C AC Adapter, so you don’t need to purchase any additional accessories. Nyko makes no mention of USB ports, so there might be a small compromise, but at $45 it might be a worthwhile compromise compared to the alternative.The dock launches this fall
Nyko’s additional accessories and their prices can be found below:
