With the release of the Nintendo Switch Online App for mobile today we have also learned that Nyko are offering a product which allows you to attach your smartphone to your Joy-Con for your voice-chat enabled online play sessions. It’s called the Clip Grip Power. The accessory also houses a pretty decent 3,000 mAh battery which will provide extra play time by serving as a secondary battery source for the Joy-Con, smartphone, or console battery. It’s currently only available on Amazon.com for $24.99 but I’m sure we’ll see a European release sometime soon.
Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s Director of Sales and Marketing had this to say about the new accessory:
Since voice chat for multiplayer games on Nintendo Switch is enabled through the Nintendo Switch Online App, we anticipate players needing a convenient, hands-free way to keep their smartphones close and visible while playing. With Clip Grip Power, we’ve created a great way to interact with the app while playing, in addition to a secondary battery source and extra storage space for your game cartridges.
