I was in the market for a carry case to go along with my son's Nintendo Switch and I had ordered the Zelda listed one on HUKD earlier. Based on comments though I began to wonder if a hard shell case would be better than soft, especially considering the value of the hardware to be carried around by my 13 year old. A search on Amazon has turned up this one for a tenner. No fancy graphics or Nintendo branding but it looks like it would do the job for a reasonable cost.

looks good, fingers crossed it's not crap when it releases

Shame it's out on the 31st of March

Thanks to the mods for adding the vendor info to the deal title.

Agreed! Secretly I'm hoping that they mean the 3rd, not 31st but if not then I guess I'll have to convince my son to be careful for a whole month!

Hopefully it still holds the console upside down, I wouldn't want the tablet screen touching that zip.

Repurposed Wii U tablet case?

Repurposed Wii U tablet case?


Ha! X) Apparently not as the size is quite different!https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/ERvYO5tLT2ye2V4LAVxlbVWTWWQ=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/7807055/switch_wii_U_comparison.jpg

The Wii U's gamepad/screen is suddenly looking pretty chunky now! HEAT for the deal though, good to have another storage/travel option for the nations most exciting and eagerly anticipated console.

I pre ordered the official one with the screen protector and think it comes with some other bits, hope that's OK as my kids are clumsy!

Looks good to me. I'm thinking of getting this one as I am more likely to play it in table top mode as opposed to handheld so being able to take the pro controller or joy cons and grip would be good...

Thanks for a literally pointless comment.

​Massive??

I hope they don't do what they did with the 3ds... halve the price within 6 months of release. I wish I had more patience....

I don't see much wiggle room for a reduction, 3ds xl still at £160 and Nintendo prices always remain solid. Consider the controllers etc. I'd imagine £250 would be a likely price point for Christmas at absolute best.

I am happy with the prices, Switch looks like a bargain to me. I would have paid £400. A bit tighter with the gaming budget though, rarely get anything the minute it comes out, always happy to wait for a decent deal.

Looking at Wii U prices I'll be surprised if we see a drop within its life cycle

Hang on, I thought the Switch screen was supposed to be an inch bigger than the one on the Wii U gamepad? Sure doesn't look it there.

Great price though IMO that inner zip migh result in some scratched screens

Actually, they both have the same diagonal size of 6.2".

Switch !!!!!! Goodnight Nintendo.such a shame.

Someone commented that this case may scratch the console because of how the zip is right around the console. Plus it looks liable to falling out from what I see in the pic (nothing to keep it from falling out when you're unzipping it while on the move). The storage compartment and price is good, but I ended up choosing a case that I could be more happy with
