If anyone knows about accessories, it's Link, the Hylian hero from the Legend of Zelda series. The Legend of Zelda series celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, so why not celebrate with some Nintendo Switch accessories? With The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and Breath of the Wild 2 on the way, now's the best time to rep our favorite silent protagonist. Here are the best Zelda Switch accessories. Hyah!
The best way to play on your Nintendo Switch is with a traditional controller, so if you're looking to upgrade, this Horipad might be for you. Featuring the Triforce at its center, the wireless controller has 15 hours of playtime and a wireless range of 32 ft. It can't read amiibo and doesn't feature rumble, however.

In the market for a simple protective case for your Switch? RDS Industries makes an excellent and simple case, complete with a durable hard-shell case and a soft interior that protects your Switch's screen and controllers. It also includes 2 multi-game cases that hold 4 games each and two microSD card cases—perfect gear for the new Switch owner.
Who shot first?
Amiibo are Nintendo's part-collectible, part-random item generator. There are many different Zelda amiibo to choose from, so you can't go wrong with any of them. Amiibo are a hot commodity, often selling out as quickly as they hit the shelves. However, they work the same, no matter where they come from, making them safe to import or buy used!

Hold it steady
The Switch is a very capable handheld, but there are times when the best way to way is at a table. Unfortunately, it doesn't take very long to realize the Nintendo Switch kickstand is about as sturdy as a paper towel. Luckily, Hori has the answer in the form of their Compact PlayStand, adorned with Zelda iconography.

The Legend of Zelda is responsible for some of the best games available on the Nintendo Switch, so it's only natural that you'd want to show off some of your Zelda swag, especially as we celebrate Zelda's 35th anniversary (sorry, Mario, you're done).
We really like the Horipad controller. It's an excellent alternative to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller if you're willing to make a few sacrifices. We also love the controller skins that transform the Nintendo Switch into a scene from the original Legend of Zelda.
If you can get on your hands on them, we also recommend the beautiful Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Joy-Cons. They are sleek and an eye-catching blue that will make your collection stand out. What better way to play the Skyward Sword HD Remake than with these babies?
