A new color of Joy-Con will be available with the launch of ARMS. In the recent Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a future launch of the Neon Yellow Joy-Con which are in celebration of the release of ARMS. The pricing of them matches the pricing of current Joy-Cons at $49.99 for an individual Joy-Con and $79.99 for the twin pack. The straps also cost the standard $7.99 if you want some neon yellow straps.
Beyond that, Nintendo also announced a new battery attachment for the Joy-Con. The attachment slides on like the straps do and allow the use of two additional AA batteries to extend the current 20 hour battery life of each Joy-Con. They also add significant girth to the Joy-Con, potentially making them more comfortable to hold. Unfortunately, no release date or pricing was unveiled for the United States, but we do have the below listing from the Nintendo Direct in Japan:
This new charging attachment seems promising, and the energetic new color seems to fit the style of ARMS well. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
