You need the best Nintendo Switch cases or covers you can get your hands on. Without one, you risk your new console’s safety every time you remove it from its dock.
Where you enjoy the Nintendo Switch is up to you thanks to a built-in display, batteries and controllers. You can play Nintendo Switch games, like Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2, in your living room or you can venture outside for up to three hours with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and play with friends. That freedom puts the console at risk though. The more you carry it, the more opportunities you have to drop it and break its screen.
Protection for the console comes in different flavors. New Joy-Con Gel protectors help keep your Nintendo Switch’s controllers from getting damaged in a fall. Nintendo Switch carry cases and travel cases are ideal ways to transport your console without permanently sticking it in a case. These won’t add bulk to the Nintendo Switch and will protect it between play sessions. The are a few Nintendo Switch backpacks as well.
One thing that you don’t want to choose is a Nintendo Switch skin. Popular skin maker Dbrand revealed in a post on Reddit that the finish of the console gets damaged when using its skins. As long as the skin stays on, your Nintendo Switch will look fine. You could end up with permanent marks on your console’s body once you try to remove a Nintendo Switch skin.
