Or, if you’re like Tim Lindquist, a hardware modder / electrical engineering student at Iowa State University, you build your own Switch-esque console, which through the power of open-source emulation software, can not only play retro Nintendo games,…

The invite frontloaded one accessory above them all: the Nyko Portable Docking Kit. Ever since I first played with a Switch, I’ve been wanting a reasonably priced, hyper-portable dock…
