The Nintendo Switch requires a separate accessory if players want to charge their Joy-Con controllers without the need of plugging them directly to the console.
Online descriptions of the Nintendo Switch reveal that the Joy-Con controllers will require a separate purchase if players wish to charge them using the grip. Alternatively, the Joy-Con controllers can be charged by equipping them directly to the sides of the Nintendo Switch console.
The controller grip that the Nintendo Switch ships with is a holder for the Joy-Con controllers, and not the actual charger itself, meaning it will cost consumers an extra $29.99 USD ($39.99 CAD) at launch if they wish to charge them while undocked from the Nintendo Switch console.
Retailers like Amazon are selling the Joy-Con Controller Grip separately.
The Nintendo Switch releases on March 3rd, 2017.
