HORI will be launching a brand new line of Nintendo Switch Lite accessories for the handheld/console hybrid’s handheld-only brother at launch. The products will be Officially Licensed by Nintendo.
The Nintendo Switch Lite will launch on September 20. As such, the Officially Licensed HORI accessories will also apparently launch on that date.
According to an official press release, the new line of Nintendo Switch Lite accessories will include:
- Screen Protectors
- Storage/travel cases
The company has also generalized that “other items” will also be available, globally, for the launch of the Nintendo Switch-That-Does-Not-Switch.
Hori also claims that all of the products have been developed in close collaboration with Nintendo — which is likely both true and a good thing since Officially Licensed products often tend to be better than un-licensed accessories from third-party hardware manufacturers. Nintendo has, historically, taken their licensing very seriously.

HORI has a strong track record of creating high-quality video game products for all major video game machines. For the Nintendo Switch, the company already sells analog caps, car chargers, Joy-Con charging stands, game card cases that hold 24 cartridges, wired internet LAN adapters, Joy-Con steering wheel accessories, USB hub play stands, screen protectors/filters, and game-specific accessory sets for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Odyssey. All of these products are Officially Licensed by Nintendo and — in our opinion — far from being rip-offs.
HORI perhaps more famously makes a range of arcade sticks for arcade/fighting games on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Additionally, HORI makes the best GameCube controllers for the Nintendo Switch that money can buy — which is well-known for those who simply cannot abide playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on any other gamepad.
