Newly Listed Nintendo Switch Accessories/Bundles Suggest Zelda Is A Launch Title


Just days before the Nintendo Switch’s big reveal, several leaks have surfaced detailing the console’s various specifications and price point. Now, we’ve another one, this time regarding accessories.

Norwegian webstore has already listed several Nintendo Switch accessories on its online store, with prices listed as well. Sadly, the store has no pictures available, but it does at least give us a flavor of the sort of accessories and bundles available for the upcoming console at launch.

The list is as follows:

Zelda Starter Kit Sheikah Eye Edition
Zelda Starter Kit Links Tunic Edition
Mario Starter Kit M Edition
Mario Starter Kit Pattern Edition
Starter Kit
System Case
Mario System Case
Zelda System Case
Secure Travel Game Case
JoyCon Gel Guards
Clean and Protect Kit
Mono Communicator
Stereo Wired Headset
Vehicle Power Adapter

Excitingly, with the amount of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild accessories listed, it seems highly likely that the game will be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. We’re particularly giddy at the possibility of a “Sheikah Eye bundle,” with a design similar to the tablet we’ve seen in Breath of the Wild gameplay.

Additionally, one of the most interesting revelations is the listing named “Mono communicator,” possibly indicating that the console will cater for voice chat. It could, though, simply be referring to the device as a headphone system that utilizes monosound. We’ll have to wait and see.

The Nintendo Switch Treehouse reveal is scheduled for next Friday, January 13th at 9:30am. Nintendo has promised to detail the console’s specifications at that time, as well as list some of its launch line-up and third party support, so be sure to stay tuned for more.
