Nintendo Switch Accessories Seen At EB Games Australia; Hints Switch May Use USB-C Charging [Video]
The Nintendo Switch is still a few months off from its official launch in March 2017. However, that did not hamper EB Games Australia from coming up with accessories for the upcoming hybrid console.
Three products for the Nintendo Switch were put up on the retailer's website that includes a Starter Pack, a Starter Pack Plus, and an entry for an Extra-Long 3m Charging Cable. The Starter Pack contains what is called a "Go Case, two screen protectors, and a cleaning cloth, while the Starter Pack Plus also contained the same items with the inclusion of earbuds.
The three-meter charging cable, on the other hand, is a USB-A to USB-C that would indicate that the Nintendo Switch might use USB-C to charge the unit, according to NintendoLife. As we still have no final data on the Nintendo Switch, this is still considered a rumor.
However, Digital Trends reported that the accessories posted on the Australian website were already taken down. The report also said that the Australian website does feature listings for the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Furthermore, no added information is provided about the controller other than the fact that the unit looks like an upgraded version of the Wii U Pro Controller.
Meanwhile, EB Games Australia provides a full listing of publishers, developers, and game engine creators supporting Nintendo Switch. The biggest names in the gaming industry are on the list including Electronic Arts.
Electronic Arts just recently announced it is coming up with a major game for the Nintendo Switch. Electronic Arts chief competition officer Peter Moore said Nintendo will always be a very important partner and that they will distribute a major game on the Switch. Whatever game that may be, was never mentioned.
Early rumors point to either Madden or NBA Live, the latter game or a semblance of it was seen in its trailer release video last October.
