Nintendo Joy-Cons rarely receive discounts, but right now on Amazon, you can grab one a pair of the Nintendo Switch controllers in their serene Pastel Purple/Green color scheme for $73.49. Sure, this isn’t a big discount off the $80 retail price for a bundle, but any discount on Joy-Con controllers is worth considering. Plus, the Pastel Purple and Green Joy-Con controllers released in June, so they are among the newest additions to the lineup.
Nintendo Switch Pastel Purple/Green Joy-Con
The internal design of the Joy-Con controller has gone virtually unchanged since they first debuted in 2017 alongside the Switch. Internally, they contain easy-to-use motion controls and HD rumble–advanced haptic feedback functions–and they work brilliantly as controllers for social games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or upcoming titles like WarioWare: Move It.
Depending on what game you’re playing, you can have a Joy-Con in each hand for some extra motion-control immersion, or you can use its gyroscopic features in more novel experiences like Ring Fit Adventure and Switch Sports. If you’re looking for something a little more affordable and traditional, there are a few other specials available right now as well.
