Astro Nintendo Switch Headset Announced with Release Date Details

Astro Gaming has now partnered with Nintendo to provide options for gamers across their existing line and a special set for the company's latest console. The Astro Nintendo Switch headset has been announced and will arrive Holiday 2018. As part of the partnership Astro will work on a variety of special edition headsets, speaker tags and accessories celebrating some of the most iconic characters and franchises in videogame history. This includes The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario and more. To start there will be three sets of exclusive speaker tags for A40 Headsets, featuring retro classic takes on The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 3. ASTRO Gaming speaker tags provide gamers with an opportunity to personalize their listening experience with magnetically interchangeable custom made art designed for the studio’s entire series of A40 headsets.

Cris “Soup” Lee, Head of Licensing & Partnerships for the company noted: "Nintendo captivates and inspires gamers with iconic franchises and perennial characters, capturing the imagination of players across all generations. Nintendo continues to push the boundaries of gaming with Nintendo Switch, which allows players to enjoy their gaming experience regardless of where they play" I'm personally looking forward to checking out these options in the future as they look great and hopefully the fresh headset will find its way to E3 2018 as we do typically have a yearly appointment with Astro and Nintendo at the event.
