Nintendo Switch Gets a Joy-Con Keyboard

A Japanese company called Cyber Gadget (what a name, by the way), is making one that looks like this:


The device may look somewhat goofy at first glance, but with the design of the Joy-Con remotes perfectly rounding out the sides, it actually doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Both Joy-Con remotes simply snap into the sides of the keyboard for easy holding and even simpler communication.

 

With upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game Dragon Quest X coming to the Nintendo Switch this September in Japan, peripheral makers are readying Switch friendly keyboards. This Cyber Gadget one is something else.

No idea if it’s actually any good, but it certainly does bring back memories of this Game Cube keyboard controller.

The keyboard doesn’t come with Joy-Con controllers (obviously!), but it’s possible to use them while docked in the mini keyboard. At 250 grams, the keyboard is light, so it seems the idea is that players will keep it attached.
It’s available on Amazon Japan for 3,758 yen ($33) and will ship at the end of September. Dragon Quest X on the couch will never be the same. I await my royalty check.

What are others saying?
