WaterField Nintendo Cases for the Switch

Hello, Switch! WaterField works with customers to create the best professional-looking cases for the Nintendo Switch

Posted Feb 27, 2017

Since January 2017 when Nintendo first announced the new Nintendo Switch, we've been working with customers to get their requirements for the ultimate Nintendo Switch Case. We had them fill out surveys to understand their use cases, and based on their input, started work on prototypes. Check out the journey from idea to product in these Nintendo Updates

Three types of users emerged based on their use cases:

  • - the "Minimalist" who wants to take along just the Switch Console, 2 Joy-Cons, the straps, USB-c power cable, and some games
  • - the "Pro" whose a multiplayer and wants to also take along additional controllers, more cables, a power bank, more Joy-Cons, and more games
  • - the "Champ" whose like a Pro, but wants to take along the Switch dock, a stand, and other peripherals for extended trips.

So we developed different products for these use cases. The Switch CitySlicker for everyday carry and the MultiPlayer Pro Case for Switch parties and travel.   The Champ's core requirements turned out to be very similar to the Pro, so we designed the MultiPlayer Pro case to be flexible enough for the Champ, and it can easily be inserted into bigger bags when requiring more space. 

Other products emerged based on customer feedback: the Switch Pouch for those who really pack light and a full-grain leather Nintendo Switch Game Card Holder

The WaterField Nintendo Switch cases, co-developed with customers and Nintendo gamers, are now ready for prime-time.
