Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield

The Nintendo Switch turned one year old yesterday, and it’s one of Nintendo’s most popular platforms. It has tripled in sales compared to their last console, the Nintendo Wii U.

We’ve had the Switch since it came out, and it’s one of the best purchases we’ve made. Their selection of games have a great variety of video game genres. If you’re in the market for a Switch, I recommend The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Those titles are a given and you’ll see them recommended everywhere. For “lesser” known titles, I recommend Dragon Quest Builders (think Minecraft with a story) and Ittle Dew 2+ (inspired by classic The Legend of Zelda titles).

Back in November, I was browsing for Nintendo Switch accessories. I found the Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield by PDP. I loved how it looked, but it was sold out everywhere. We visited New York City in December and went to a few GameStop/ThinkGeek stores and none of them had it in stock. After a month or so, it was back in stock on Amazon so I immediately bought it.

This light up dock shield goes on top of your Nintendo Switch dock shield and connects via USB. It includes two acrylic framing panels: one for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (pictured above) and one for Super Mario Odyssey. You have 17 different colors and/or light up effects to choose from, including a Flash Mode, Strobe Mode, Fade Mode, and Smooth Mode.

If you want a nice-looking accessory for your Nintendo Switch, I definitely recommend the Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield. I would love for PDP to release more acrylic framing panels for it as more games come out. I’m looking forward to it, that way we can swap them out every now and then.

Question Time:

Do you have a Nintendo Switch? Do you have any accessories for it? What’s your favorite?

  1. I’m surprised there aren’t more acccessories like this one. Really helps the Switch dock stand-out when placed near other consoles and it’s pretty inexpensive. I wonder how hard it would be to get some custom plates made.
