For me personally, I don't always prefer to wear my gaming passion on my sleeves. When it comes to carting gaming gear around I prefer a more neutral, less 'hey-check-me-out-I've-got-an-expensive-Switch' look. Thankfully WaterField are a company that aims to offer just that, and to further expand their range they've recently blown the lid off their new Arcade Gaming Case for Nintendo's latest beast.
Make sure you check out the video above where we test the sucker out to see if it manages to cut the proverbial mustard. Should you want to pick one of these up for yourself, you can do so from their website, but be prepared to pay a premium price for a premium product.
I wish I had the money for it.
thanks for the review, I stopped watching at "Expected to remove your joycon from the sides". Why can't they just make it a bit wider to so you can keep them on?
Ya. Not gonna remove my Joycon every day I take it with me.
WaterField makes beautiful products. A shame they are too rich for my blood.
They seem to have some nice alternatives which are wide enough to keep the Joy Cons on. Cheaper too, but more of a pouch than a bag (which I prefer)
Any one willing to loan me money?
As much as I want a case that can carry my stand, battery, cords and pro-controller along with my Switch and games, this doesn't look great to me. It seems like you are just jamming everything into it. I get worried about my joysticks if they are just pushed up against a bunch of stuff.
I don't need to spend a lot of money just only for a bag.
I bought this bag for both of my New 3DS XL and Switch.
Anello Shoulder bag.
Um... actually it's Woman shoulder bag, but who cares ?
It doesn't look like a Girlie stuffs. The Blue color is matching with my taste. And it just only cost IDR 130,000 or US$ 9.64
@AlexOlney - The SFANS indiegogo campaign has gone dark after taking everyone''s money..... :/
My $9.99 traveling case will just do the same with joycons attached
Nice to hear you are a bit better Alex! Still, you sounded a bit off at the beginning, so take care of yourself.
Speaking of the cases, I have a chunky one that I got to protect the Switch now, but I wish to change it in the close future, but this Arcade case seems a bit chunky.
Personally, I'd go for Watefield Design's Pouch for the Nintendo Switch - it protects my Switch enough, it can be elegant and not scream "I'm high tech!", and I can throw it inside my backpack or my pouch without it taking so much space.
I am waiting for Chanel and Louis Vuitton to make a leather case for my Switch.
Still using the one that came with my BotW Special Edition. Works great.
@invictus4000 I love that one, but I would equally love something a little more adult-y
This is great ! I always carry my switch without the joy cons as I always use a PRO controller ( except for ARMS) @AlexOlney - could you not put the Hori play stand in the outer pocket and put the SWITCH inside the zipper area?
@cfgk24 Tried putting the Switch in the back pocket but it moves around a lot and doesn't have any protection designed for it back there. Certainly not impossible but it's obvious it's not what it was designed for.
less 'hey-check-me-out-I've-got-an-expensive-Switch' look
So instead of seeing you with a Switch, the would be thief spots an expensive looking bag, with the added bonus of a Switch inside. 🙄
@AlexOlney Thanks - I always use my SWITCH Hybrid cover - you know - the Folding up one that protects the screen- There is a Splatoon version - Kinda bulks up the switch a little but makes it feel like you are carrying your favourite book around with you so that's a good thing - Have a look at the HEDGREN CONNECT range of bags - I'm using the 'Passage' bag which perfectly carries SWITCH. Pro controller, Hori play stand, UK charger, cables etc and a battery. - It's perfect!
@cfgk24 @AlexOlney .. and yes - I am travelling around Europe and Asia with my Switch. . . . .
