Nintendo’s new pastel Joy-Con are up for preorder — and they’ve already sold out once

    TL;DR: Nintendo’s new pastel Joy-Con ($79.99 each) are available for preorder at Best Buy(opens in a new tab) and GameStop(opens in a new tab) ahead of their official release on Friday, June 30. They’re currently sold out in the My Nintendo Store(opens in a new tab).

    Good news for anyone who’s busted their Switch’s controllers playing Tears of the Kingdom: Nintendo is releasing two brand-new pairs of Joy-Con in pretty, summery pastel hues later this month.

    Priced at $79.99 just like their standard Neon Red/Neon Blue counterparts, the new colorways include sherbert-y Pastel Purple/Pastel Green and Pastel Pink/Pastel Yellow. (They kind of look like the Joy-Con that came with Nintendo’s special-edition Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch(opens in a new tab) from 2020, only with black straps.) You can’t mix and match unless you buy both pairs, unfortunately.

    Both pairs of pastel Joy-Con have already sold out in the My Nintendo Store(opens in a new tab), Nintendo’s online shop, but you can still pre-order them through Best Buy(opens in a new tab) or GameStop(opens in a new tab) before their June 30 launch.

    The pastel Joy-Con are compatible with the regular Switch as well as the newer OLED model, and functionally identical to all of the Joy-Con that have come before them: You get motion controls, HD rumble, and a battery life of about 20 hours per charge. This means their analog sticks will also probably drift eventually, but hey — at least they’re cute. (Keep in mind that Nintendo has a free repair program(opens in a new tab) for if/when that happens.)
