    Recommended products by forum members. There's a few Orzly products there. I'm not on commission, honest!

    SCREEN PROTECTOR
    I think it's fair to say that this is considered to be far the best screen protector.

    Orzly Tempered Glass Screen Protector:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Screen-Protector-Nintendo-Switch-Tempered/dp/B01N9RG3XS/


    CARRY CASES
    Various carry cases. Some are bigger than others.

    Younik Upgrade Version Hard Travel Carrying Case:

    STANDS

    Nintendo Switch Stand, Lamicall Foldable Tablet Stand : Desktop Stand Holder Dock for Nintendo Switch:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MA4RAQF

    Note that this stand partially blocks some of the vents so it could reduce cooling.

    An alternative is:

    HORI Switch Compact PlayStand
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/HORI-Switch-Compact-PlayStand-Nintendo/dp/B01N9RTMWS


    JOYCON GRIPS

    Orzly Grips compatible with Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons for Extra Comfort
    Other versions of this basically seem the same so buy the cheapest ones.

    2 Pack Nintendo Switch Grip Kits:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071CJ5HPZ

    Of all the things revealed, the price of these left the sourest taste. Without wanting to come across as a cheapo, the prices should have been half of what they are. Hopefully they'll see sense soon enough, or at least retailers may.

    I'll probably by an extra set of joycons for local multiplayer and that's all. I'm not convinced the pro controller is necessary and of course the prices are poor value for money.

    I've ordered a pro controller. I'm not convinced that the button/stick placement on the joycons will be all that comfortable. Also got a hard case on order.

    I've ordered the Pro Controller, it's a tenner more than it should but not as bad as the joycon prices. A bewildering approach from Nintendo.

    I'm only ordering 1 game but an extra set of joy-cons, 2 pro controllers and a charge grip. My reasoning is that I think the games will be discounted quicker than the accessories.

    The case prices look about right but the rest of it is overpriced they need to slash 10 to 15 off most of them.

    Why not order the extra accessories when you need them, rather than up front?

    You're only buying Zelda at first aren't you? Won't need two pro controllers for that, unless they have a big secret yet to reveal. :)

    I was just wondering the other day if Nintendo might repeat an old trick of bundling controllers, perhaps with unique livery, with upcoming games. Splattoon '2' might get a bundle, for example. That'd bring the price of game and hardware down.

    That sorta thing. Hedging bets makes more sense than buying up front if you don't have a burning need.

    Do you need 4 straps? 2 come in the box with the console.

    It's just so that I can take a punt on it all now while I have the money.

    If the box image of the extra joycons is anything to go by, they also come with those too.

    @ghearoid only really needed if you break or lose one. 2 come with the console and the joy cons do when you buy them too.

    Argos seem to have several cases which I haven't been able to find on Amazon, including the Zelda BOTW one:
