Celebrating the July 16 release of the Zelda game, a pair of Joy-Con controllers will be launched in conjunction with the game. The design sees a dark-blue right side and a left side in a lighter shade of blue — representing both the Master Sword and the Hylian Shield, respectively. The rope hand lanyards also follow the blue color scheme.
Those there’s no official pricing news, but pre-orders have surfaced listing the special-edition controllers at approximately $90 USD.
