If you’re struggling to find some good gaming gifts in time for the holidays, then the Nitro Deck handheld controller from CRKD is our current top choice for any Nintendo Switch owner. It ranks among the best Nintendo Switch accessories on the market right now and, as an owner of the controller myself, it is easily the accessory that I have used the most over this year.

Both standard and limited editions are discounted on both sides of the Atlantic right now, with US price cuts taking the basic version of the controller down to just $49.99 at Amazon (was $59.99) and the Limited Edition down to $74.99 at Amazon (was $89.99).

In the UK, the standard variant is now £49.99 at Amazon UK (was £59.99) while the Limited Edition is now £69.99 at Argos (down from £89.99).

Considering that we already thought that the accessory offered fantastic value at its list price, these discounted prices are absolute no-brainers if you want to get a top Switch accessory for less. They also make for perfect Nintendo Switch gifts as well, arriving just in time for the holidays.

We've got more information on the deals and prices below, but it's worth noting that the Nitro Deck fits the original Nintendo Switch console and the Nintendo Switch OLED (it's not compatible with the Nintendo Switch Lite, sadly).

We awarded the Nitro Deck five stars in our review earlier this year, where our Hardware Editor Rhys described the Nintendo Switch as “truly optimized for portable play when equipped with the Nitro Deck, offering a comfortable grip and play-enhancing, robust extras like those programmable back buttons.”
