About this project

NINTENDO SWITCH is an awesome gaming console, we love it! It provides different gaming modes to fulfill players’ needs, allowing us to enjoy the games anytime and anywhere.

The handheld mode is always our favorite, but we found because of its size and flat back, it is difficult to hold the console and play the games for a long period of time making our hands too tied from holding the SWITCH. Which got us thinking, why not make a case, not only to protect the SWITCH but also providing two comfortable grips on the SWITCH, just like the PS4 and XB1 joy-cons.

So the SwitchCase was born to let game players to have the ability to play the games for hours without the feeling of fatigue.

The SnapGrip is a basic set for the most players and games. And the TriggerGrip provides stronger grip force, it is designed for players with bigger hands and play hardcore games very often.

Both grip sets are made of hard PC (polycarbonate) with texture on the surface, which gives players a similar feeling of holding a XB1 or PS4 joy-con.

The SwitchCase is made of soft TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethanes) material, which is similar to the silicone, a environmental friendly material has been wildly used to make cell phone protective cases. It will not scratch your SWITCH like the hard plastic does. Most important, our SwitchCase is easy to put on and remove, convenient for gamers to take the case off when they intend to switch between different gaming modes.

The SwitchCase has a 0.7mm thin back, not only designed for heat sinking but also dock charging. There is no need to remove the case to get your SWITCH recharged in the dock.

The soft TPU material makes the SwitchCase so unique and it gives us so much more spaces to design this case in the way have never done before. Finally we achieved our goal, which the shoulder buttons were covered by the SwitchCase meanwhile remain the original keystroke sense.

We also designed a Carry Case to store the SWITCH with SwitchCase on. This Carry Case can swallow almost everything you can imagine, such as power bank, adaptor, USB cable, headset, game cards, joy-con grips and etc. The SwitchCase and the Carry Case can be the ultimate solution for your NINTENDO SWITCH.

SwitchCase will be available in Gray or Neon Red Blue. You will get to select your color options via a survey sent out after the campaign ends.

Skull & Co. is established by a group of young people who love video games, we are designers, engineers, sourcing managers and etc. but we have one thing in common, games! From the beginning, we discovered that it was near impossible to find a well-designed third party gaming accessory in the market. They were made from a view of engineers not gamers. So we decided to make our own products from the point of view of a gamer. Our team became more and more experienced while creating our products.

This project is much bigger than any of our previous projects; also this is something we feel most passionately about. We need funds to invest on the tooling and people to follow and support this project. Our prototype has indicated to us that this is a great design and it can be mass produced smoothly. Our manufacture partner is ready to go.

With support from kickstarter, we can speed up this project and make this SwitchCase reality.

Risks and challenges

We have made a wide range of products in the past, while our team became bigger and more experienced. We have made few prototypes to polish this product and each prototype have made our goal of mass production more feasible. Our manufacture partner and us have solved every problem we have anticipated in facing in the process of bring this product to the market. We are mostly focused in the tooling in creating this product, any mistake or change can lead to delay in shipping of the products.

Based on our past experience, we anticipate being able to fulfill orders within 6-8 weeks, but we should note that forecasting demand is an inexact science. If order volumes exceed our expectations, it might take slightly longer to fulfill orders.
