Mix and Match JoyCon Colours in Japan

There are already quite a few JoyCon colours on the market. If you’re more of a plain or sleek guy, you can choose receive grey JoyCons with your Switch purchase, but if you’re more the colourful type, then there is Neon Blue and Red, Neon Yellow, or Neon Pink and Green you can choose from. Up until now, in Japan, if you wanted to have a mixture of different colours then the ones above, you would have to also purchase a separate pair of JoyCons with your brand new Nintendo Switch.

It seems that Nintendo of Japan’s website has now launched a Nintendo Switch JoyCon bundle builder of sorts. This tool lets you choose which colour you want each of your included JoyCons to be in, you can even choose what coloured straps your want. There is a slight catch however. At the time of writing, you may only choose colours which have been specifically released for that specific JoyCon. That means you will be able to get your left JoyCon in Neon Green, but you cannot get the right one in that colour as Nintendo have yet to officially release the right one in Neon Green.

This is a bit of a drawback, though I could see this pave the way for more customisable colour combinations in the future. Hopefully the service may find its way overseas soon.

More EA Games for Switch if FIFA 18 Performs Well

As much as some people disagree with EA, they do have a bunch of awesome IPs, such as Sims, Titanfall, Star Wars Battlefront, Need for Speed, and Battlefield, they’re even releasing a brand new IP, Anthem, which looks absolutely incredible. You may notice however that there hasn’t been a lot of EA love for Nintendo in recent years, though this could all change with the Nintendo Switch.

Vice President, Patrick Söderlund, recently spoke with EDGE magazine about Nintendo’s hot new platform, and mentioned how he wants to help the Switch library to grow. Unfortunately, it seems EA plan to take their Switch releases hostage and also states that depending on how well FIFA 8 sells on the Switch will affect the games they release for the console.

Splat Brella Releasing Tomorrow for Splatoon 2

One of Splatoon’s unique new weapons is releasing tomorrow, the Splat Brella. This shotgun like weapon is perfect for close encounters, and holding fire will open up the parasol acting like a nifty shield. That’s not all, hold the brella open long enough will launch it forwards. Use this for a sneak attack… your enemy won’t know what splat them!

Nintendo Receives Lawsuit over JoyCons

Companies don’t seem to be shy to file lawsuits against Nintendo, such as the six year dispute between the Japanese gaming giant and RecogniCorp over Mii character creation. Luckily, for the most part, Nintendo has come out victorious.

It seems, however, that Nintendo are being hit yet again with another lawsuit, this time regarding the detachable JoyCons. Accessory manufacturer, Gamevice, claims that Nintendo’s JoyCon controllers are similar to their Wikipad accessory, and are suing Nintendo for damages and are hoping to have a ban on Nintendo Switch sales.

Personally, I believe it should be easy for Nintendo to overturn this case, but it should be interesting to see how this plays out… I very much doubt Gamevice will be able to ban Switch sales however!
