Animal Crossing & Minecraft-inspired Gioteck controllers heading to Switch

Gioteck is a manufacturer that offers more affordable accessory options for all gaming platforms. These range from headsets to controllers, and today, the company has revealed a bunch of new designs. For Nintendo Switch owners, there are Animal Crossing-inspired Joy-Con sets and Minecraft-inspired Pro Controllers & Joy-Con sets on offer.

The Minecraft-esque controllers have been unveiled and look pretty convincing. The Joy-Con show off Minecraft‘s iconic grass block imagery, with the lower portion appearing like soil, and the top third showing off a grass effect. The Pro Controller variant (the Gioteck WX-4) displays a more broad Minecraft landscape, skybox and all.












Sadly, the Animal Crossing designs are nowhere near as accomplished. The Joy-Con set inspired by New Horizons simply follows the color scheme offered by the official Nintendo set. You get Joy-Con with the pastel green and blue designs, but nothing else that makes it look like Animal Crossing. With the effort put into the Minecraft designs, a more elaborate Animal Crossing theme would have been appreciated, but without official licensing, this makes sense.


These Gioteck accessories will be available over the coming months from various retailers. In the UK, Argos, GAME and Smyths Toys will carry stock.

Are you interested in any of these designs?
