Nintendo is cutting the price of single Joy-Cons in the US. Starting on November 9th, you can pick up a left Neon Blue or right Neon Red Joy-Con for $40. It’s not clear whether the cut will apply to other color variants.
Since the Switch arrived in 2017, single Joy-Cons have cost $50. A pair of the controllers would typically set you back $80, so you can save quite a bit if you just need one of them. Nintendo recently announced a price cut in Japan too. From November 6th, a solo Joy-Con will cost about $36 there, down from $43.
