The Best Nintendo Switch Cases

Be subtle or let your love of Nintendo shine with one of these protective cases.

At launch, Nintendo wasn't able to keep up with demand for its Switch console; now it's ramping up and aims to produce 25 million to 30 million more units next year. With streaming services on the way and a stable of popular titles, Nintendo is betting the Switch will outsell the Wii.

If you already got your hands on a Switch , make sure you protect your investment with a case. On release day, PCMag's Will Greenwald was lucky enough to grab the last Sheikah Slate case that was included with the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special and Master Editions. It was hard to come by because Zelda was the driving force behind the Switch. This year, it's all about Super Mario Odyssey, a hit for its gameplay and its memes. It also, of course, comes with its own special-edition case.

Not every Switch case is as hard to get, though. For a case that fits your Switch and your personality, check out the options below.
