Red Joy-Con

Over the years since the Nintendo Switch launched, we have seen a large variety of Joy-Con controller variations. With so many colours on the market, you should be able to find a Joy-Con to express your own individual personality.

However, IGN bigwig Peer Schneider has noticed a glaring problem – and no, it's nothing to do with drifting analog sticks. There are simply too many shades of red within the variations on sale.

In a recent tweet, Peer shows a photo of the Neon Red, Super Mario Odyssey Red, Splatoon pink and the Joy-Con bundled with the Mario Red & Blue Edition. And we have to admit, he's right – they are all strikingly similar, with only a very slight difference in hue between them. He also makes the rather good point that there are colours in the spectrum which Nintendo hasn't used for Joy-Con yet – perhaps now is the time to do so.

At least Peer is impressed that the Switch's UI can tell them apart when docked in the system. Now that is a nice touch!

We are still coming to terms with the two shades of blue on display with the recently revealed Limited Edition Zelda: Skyward Sword Joy-Cons. C'mon, Nintendo. Pick one shade of blue and stick with it.
