Every Joy-Con controller color plus some customization options!

You can make your Joy-Cons fit your style with colors that match your favorite games. Joy-Cons of all colors are in stock regularly so you can buy as many different-colored extra Joy-Cons as you want! You can even make your controller look new with a silicone cover or a new shell! Here is a list of every official color of Joy-Con available, plus a few customization options so you can really stand out.

Pro Tip: Do not put an adhesive skin on your Joy-Con controllers. According to DBrand, a top-named adhesive skin maker, the factory coating on the Joy-Cons and the console can be damaged by adhesives.

Standard option


Of course, the most popular color is the one that comes standard on most Nintendo Switch devices. If you want to stick with the norm you can get this standalone pair.

Beach favorite


Blue is a very popular color. The official “Neon Blue” Joy-Cons look great with the gray Switch and they’re not as unreasonably priced as they once were.

Nintendo Switch officially released the Neon Pink and Neon Green Joy-Con controllers in the U.S. in Janurary of 2018. They match to the theme of Splatoon perfectly!

It’s a-me!

Super Mario Red

You can’t get these separate from the full Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition bundle. If you don’t already own a Switch I highly recommend this model. The deep red color of the Joy-Cons is much more pleasing to the eyes than the standard gray option.

Speaking of Nostalgia, you should probably get your hands on these NES style controllers as well. If you’ve got a couple bucks to spare, and you are starting a collection, these controllers would look great with all the vintage gaming gear on your shelf.

Under control

Whether you simply want a change in color or you didn’t care for the color Joy-Cons your Switch came with, there are several replacement options out there. Customizing your controllers adds a touch of you to your console set up and changes the overall feel of your console. There are tons of different designs and color choices out there for you to consider so make sure you pick the one that pulls your heart the most!

I personally love the vibrancy of the Mario Red Joy-Cons and the unique shade of red. Since that can be incredibly expensive, you might want to consider the cheaper option of switching out the shell with an eXtremeRate replacement Joy-Con shell. In addition to the beautiful red, there are several other colors to choose from. If you love the feel of nostalgia consider these NES Classic style controllers.
