Nintendo Switch players in Europe will be happy to know that pre-orders for standalone docks are available now from various retailers. The price is nearly the same as the U.S. version of $90, and will cost you £79.99. The European release for the unit is about a month away, and it will be available on June 23rd.
Availablility of new docks is good news for Switch owners, especially those with multiple TVs. Coming home from college and bringing your Switch? Don’t worry, just plop a new dock at mom and dad’s and you’ll be in business. The beauty of the Switch is that you don’t need the dock if staying in the same home unless you simply don’t like playing on the small screen. Personally, my kids get a kick out of playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe together using the kickstand and detached controllers.
The Switch also has several other new accessories becoming available in June. A Neon Yellow Joy-Con controller and strap will be available on June 16th joining the red and blue colors. A combination pack containing both Joy-Con controllers and a AA battery pack is also coming on the same day. If you plan on picking up an extra dock, pre-orders may be the way to go to ensure a day one pickup. After all, you know how fast these things sell out.
