The hot new Nintendo Switch is basically the exact opposite of Nintendo’s last home gaming console, the Wii U. Everyone loves it and everyone wants it, but it’s next to impossible to find one right now unless you’re willing to pay $40 or $50 over retail and order one on Amazon. Nintendo recently announced that more than 2 million consoles have been sold so far though, which means plenty of people have managed to score a Switch. If you’re one of those people, this post will show you five awesome accessories you definitely need.

First is the Pro Controller, which is obviously a must-have. Then you’ll find a Joy-Con Charging Grip, which lets you charge your controllers without connecting them to the Switch. Wondering what else you’ll need? Check out the full list below.
