Nintendo Joy-Cons To Receive Permanent Price Cut Soon


Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons aren’t cheap, but the company will at least make individual Joy-Con controllers a little more affordable. Previously $50, individual left and right Joy-Cons now cost $40 each. That brings them in line with Joy-Con two-packs, which get you both controllers for $80. This price cut will go into effect on November 9, so you may want to hold off on any Joy-Con purchases until then.

Nintendo of America announced the news on Twitter, stating that you can get either the left Joy-Con in Neon Blue or the right Joy-Con in Neon Red. Nintendo didn’t mention anything about its grey Joy-Cons, which are still listed as $50 on its website–it’s unclear if grey is being discontinued.

Thankfully, you can frequently get Joy-Cons at below their list price, thanks to frequent discounts on Amazon and Walmart. Right now, Amazon and Walmart have Joy-Con two-packs on for $69, down from their regular price of $80. Some colours aren’t in stock, but you can reserve them now by placing an order.
