Let’s get this out of the way, I don’t like Fortnite. But I am seriously considering these new Fortnite Joy-Cons, because good Lord, those colours are wonderful.

Thats a lovely, rich shade of blue there on the left, but on the right, have mercy. Not even that stupid banana face can ruin it. Yellow — and I mean a nice, deep gold, not piss yellow — controllers and handhelds are simply the pinnacle of Nintendo colour schemes, and nobody can ever convince me otherwise. Look at this:

Perfection.

Sadly these Joy-Cons don’t quite reach that level, because of the banana face like I said, but also the logos on the back that make the blue one look like a Facebook peripheral. Maybe/hopefully you can gently scratch them all off!

These are out on June 4, and also come with 500 V-bucks and a couple of “in-game cosmetics”.

      I actually have that Pikachu Gameboy. It was my very first one that I bought on a trip to the US back in ’99 and started a lifelong tradition of me starting Pokemon games and then giving them up.
