There is a whole wide world of accessories out there for your Nintendo Switch. Getting the stuff you need to make your Switch experience more comfortable will make your gaming life just a little bit better!

Our top pick is the YCCTEAM Type-C to HDMI Adapter Hub Dock because it allows for seamless transition from handheld to TV when the dock isn't around. Plus, it's great for vacations as it's super portable and easy to use.

We can't live without the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller because it feels more like a traditional console controller than the Joy-Cons. It's incredibly comfy to use, even for several hours at a time, and the battery lasts forever.

For traveling, we like to be minimal. The tomtoc Ultra Slim Case is our favorite for its slender profile, yet it's also very protective. The card sleeve in the middle means you can carry plenty of games to keep you entertained while on the go. And of course, we can't go without the amFilm tempered glass screen protector because it's barely noticeable, easy to install, and keeps your Switch in perfect condition.
