To wit, the Switch accessories are running more expensive than comparable ones on the Wii and Wii U. Wii Remotes, an analog to the new Joy-Cons, are retailed for $39.99, the same price as the Wii U Pro Controller. The Nintendo Switch itself will retail for $299.99, making early adopters for the console face some expensive surcharges.
