Nintendo Switch accessories leaked

HORI's entire Nintendo Switch accessory fleet has leaked, revealing that the Switch won't have a gigabit Ethernet port, and much more

HORI's complete Nintendo Switch accessory lineup has been leaked out into the wild, giving us a good idea of the Switch's hardware and confirms some of our recent reports.

The leaked accessory fleet confirms that the Nintendo Switch won't have a gigabit Ethernet port, instead requiring a USB LAN adapter for wired play. Nintendo made up for this by including 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11ac MIMO Wi-Fi support within the Switch tablet itself. The Switch will also have at least one fighting game at some point, possibly Tekken 7 and/or Capcom's latest Marvel vs Capcom Infinite; both Namco Bandai and Capcom are confirmed third-party Nintendo Switch partners.

We also have an awesome Switch JoyPad Pro controller that clearly shows a dedicated button for recording in-game footage, similar to the PS4's DualShock 4 controller. HORI also has a Compact PlayStand that allows you to play on the Switch and charge it via USB Type-C while its JoyPad controllers are detached--this would've been impossible as the Switch's kickstand isn't tall enough to leave enough room for a Type-C cord and keep the device stable, unless, of course, you used a 90-degree USB Type-C cord.

Check below for a complete showcase of all of HORI's Nintendo Switch accessories:

The Nintendo Switch launches in March 2017, possibly at a $249 and $299 price point, with a major reveal including full specs, launch lineup and more being held on January 13-15, 2017. Check below for everything we know about the Nintendo Switch so far, including confirmed details, analyses, rumors, specs and more.

Nintendo Switch Info and Specs

  • Nintendo Switch handheld tablet uses non-removable, rechargable 3.7V Li-Ion battery
  • Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11ac MIMO Wi-Fi supported
  • No LTE/cellular internet support
  • USB Type-C confirmed
  • No Ethernet port in the Switch cradle/dock, requires USB-to-ethernet adapter, compatible with Wii's LAN adapter
  • Switch handheld supports MicroSD for expanded memory
  • Laptops can be hooked directly to the cradle
  • Detachable JoyPad controllers are connected via Bluetooth
  • Low-power Bluetooth, likely Bluetooth 4.0 +
  • AC Adapter output (from dock to handheld) DC 5 V - DC 15 V, 2.6 A - Switch has max power draw of 39W while charging on cradle, supports Type-C quick-charge*
  • AC Adapter input (from wall to dock) AC 100 - 240 V, 50 / 60 Hz, 1 A - standardized power, hinting the Switch may be region-free (the Wii U's adapter, however, is similarly rated and isn't region-free)

*Basic formula to convert volts to watts is Watts = Volts x Amps, so we plug in the Switch's 15V times the 2.6A to get 39W, meaning the Switch will draw a max of 39W while docked.
