New Joy-Con Color, Battery Pack Coming

Illustration for article titled New Joy-Con Color, Battery Pack Coming

Nintendo’s Joy-Con contollers will soon be available in a new colour—”Neon Yellow”—while you’ll also later this year be able to buy a battery pack to extend the life of the lil’ pads.

Both accessories will be available in the US on June 16. No word on price for the battery pack, but Nintendo’s Japanese site says ¥3280, which would put it in the $30 ballpark.

Are these for people that habitually forget to reattach their Joycon (or dock them) after sessions of 1,2 Switch and eventually Arms? Because they seem entirely unnecessary.
