25 years of Pokémon, that really has gone fast. I remember being in school trading Pokémon cards with friends. As well as all of us playing on our Game Boys and talking about the games. Good times.
Anyway, 25 years on, to help celebrate this, PowerA bring us 2 new Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite accessories. One in the form of an “Enhanced Wireless Controller” and the other is a protective case for both the Switch and Switch Lite.
The controller supports Bluetooth 5.0 as well as motion controls. It also has some mappable “Advanced Gaming Buttons” which could come in handy for hardcore players. Possibly for games such as Smash Bros.
We’re told in an official press release from PowerA:
WOODINVILLE, Wash. – February 15th, 2021: PowerA – an industry-leading developer of high-quality, licensed gaming peripherals – is proud to announce that the new Enhanced Wireless Controller and Protection Case for the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite – Pikachu 025 are now available. Commemorate 25 years of one of gaming’s most beloved franchises by taking home a controller that harkens back to the series’ roots. You can catch both the stylised case and Enhanced Wireless Nintendo Switch controller right now in at Argos for £39.99. Find additional EU retailers here.
This officially licensed controller from PowerA elevates your play across Nintendo Switch games featuring motion controls, mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons and Bluetooth® 5.0 technology for wireless play. With up to 30 hours of gameplay from the internal rechargeable battery, the Enhanced Wireless Controller gives you the edge you need in competitive play as well as flexibility and comfort during long, relaxed gaming sessions.
In my opinion, that’s reasonable pricing for licensed Pokémon accessories for the Nintendo Switch.
