Rare Amazon price drop delivers official Nintendo Joy-Con at $69 shipped (Reg. $80)

5 days ago 20

Amazon is now offering the official Nintendo Joy-Con in Neon Red/Blue for $68.99 shipped. Regularly $80, this relatively rare deals delivers nearly 15% in savings and the lowest price we can find on an extra set of official Nintendo Switch controllers. While we have seen a few fleeting offers via Adorama on Nintendo’s Joy-Con this year, today’s offers marks a rare occasion to land a set at a discount directly from Amazon. They can come together to flank your console for a more traditional gamepad setup or split apart for couch co-op action alongside motion controls with the built-in accelerometer and gyro-sensor. Head below for more details. 

If a more traditional wired option will do the trick, you can save a whole lot more opting for one of PowerA’s officially licensed gamepads instead. Alongside a series of different designs, colorways, and patterns, you can land one of these Switch gamepads for around $19 Prime shipped on Amazon right now. They are wired, unlike the official Nintendo Joy-Con, but can still make for a great couch co-op option at a much more affordable price.
