Someone 3D printed a contraption to hold some Switch games and, more importantly, the strap attachments for their Switch’s Joy-Con controllers, creating something I didn’t know I needed until now.
Ever since the days of Rez, Tetsuya Mizuguchi has always wanted you to not just play his games, but feel them, too. Should I have expected Lumines Remastered on Switch to be any different? Should I not have assumed I’d be taking my shoes off and putting Joy-Cons on my feet?
A man who credited the Switch with detecting a tumor in his hand had the tumor removed Monday. Now he’s come up with a clever way to play games during recovery.
Thanks to the Nintendo Switch, a man was able to detect a tumor in his hand.
If Nintendo is short on Labo ideas, which I doubt, here’s one from Twitter user Colonel Odonger: a cardboard grasshopper.
Ever since the Nintendo Switch released last March, people have been painting them, modding them, and 3D printing all manner of accessories for them. One of the latest is a Joy-Con grip that can fit your phone inside it.
Nintendo launched the Switch on March 3 of this year. The system was surprisingly well received. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was amazing, plus it was portable, and the Switch has been gaining momentum ever since. There’s just one problem: it doesn’t have a d-pad.

In the past, Nintendo has been synonymous with baffling business decisions and out-of-touch thinking.

The Nintendo Switch grey Joy-Con controllers are pretty nondescript all by themselves, but you can throw a few SNES-themed buttons on there to spice things up if you’re brave enough.
If you, like me and several other Kotaku staff, have run into a consistent left Switch JoyCon signal issue, don’t worry: Nintendo says it’s not in fact a hardware problem, but a “manufacturing variation.” The company also says to contact them for a fix if you’re running into the problem.
Truly painting your Joy-Con controllers will require taking them completely apart. The process looks gnarly but the people who have done it say it’s not that bad.
After only a weekend, I’m still forming my opinions about the Nintendo Switch, but I do know that I love the Joy-Con controllers. Some of my co-workers aren’t as jazzed as me, however. So I did what anyone else would do: demand to measure their hands so I could see if their feelings about the Joy-Con were based on…
