Earlier this month HORI revealed a headset for the Nintendo Switch, and now they’ve revealed a new one, and it looks way more sophisticated (and expensive) than the previous one.The new headset, called Air Stereo Headset, features a larger and more futuristic design, and from what we can tell, offers better audio than the other one.HORI has been on a Switch accessory spree, recently revealing the Nintendo Switch keyboard accessory, and a fight stick as well.The headset launches in Japan next month and will retail for 3,500 Yen, or about $30. No word on when the headset will be released in the rest of the world.And just like the other headset, you’ll need to use your smartphone and Nintendo’s app to actually use the microphone for voice chat. Here’s how the setup looks on the new headset:Hopefully Nintendo can come up with a more elegant solution in the future.Here’s a few more looks at the new HORI Switch headset: READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!
Japanese accessory maker HORI has revealed a brand new Switch keyboard accessory. The keyboard will be released in Japan in September and will connect via the USB-C port (unfortunately it’s not a wireless Bluetooth keyboard). We don’t really know why you would need a Nintendo Switch keyboard, but if you’re interested, you’ll be able to pick one up in Japan this September for 3.000 Yen, or about $27. No word from HORI if they plan on bringing the Switch keyboard to the West. Check out some photos of it below. Would you buy this keyboard for your Switch console?

Remember a few months ago when we first found out that voice chat on the Nintendo Switch would be handled through an app on your smartphone? Remember when Reggie said other console’s voice chat setup was clunky? Well, Hori has just revealed that and it’s far clunkier than the wealth of options you’ll find on other consoles.The official Splatoon 2 headset from Hori comes with a sound splitter. First, you plug the headset into the splitter, then you plug one cable into your smart device and the other into your Nintendo Switch. The cables are also 0.5 m long.While the headset itself is nice, and modeled after one that actually appears in Splatoon 2, it’s absurd that this setup should be so complicated. We shouldn’t need three wires and an adapter to do what anyone can do on their PS4, Xbox One, or even PS Vita with either one cable or no cables at all.I’m praying that this is only Hori’s setup and we learn there’s an easier way to get the game sound and voice chat audio to your headset, but somehow I doubt it. Nintendo’s approach to voice chat really is looking archaic.[via NeoGAF, Twitter] READ FULL STORY AT…

With the sheer amount of rumors that have been going around for the last few months, the last thing we would be surprised about is confirmation that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would launch alongside the Nintendo Switch. Yet, just a few days before Nintendo’s tell-all video about the Switch, here we have another leak that just about confirms what’s been on everyone’s mind.This time, the leak comes from Hori, the company behind various gaming accessories like screen protectors and fight sticks. Hori’s lineup of Nintendo Switch accessories has leaked. The document showcasing everything gives us a look at Breath of the Wild skins for the Switch dock and Joycon dock. What’s interesting is that Hori notes that these skins will launch in March. Now, unless Hori wants to beat Nintendo to the punch, we have to assume that they’re launching in March to coincide with Breath of the Wild.Another thing of note is one of the buttons on Xbox-style Hori controller. On the far left, you’ll see what appears to be a recording button. This provides further proof that the Switch controllers will have a button that allows players to record gameplay and take screenshots similar to the…
