The Switch just got a keyboard accessory in Japan

The Joy-Cons snap onto the side and the keyboard is powered by USB

Japanese accessory manufacturer Cyber Gadget has released a new keyboard accessory for Switch owners who want to chat without putting their Joy-Cons down. The compact keyboard is a 55-key Japanese keyboard that connects to the Switch dock via USB, but it also works with PC and PlayStation 4.

It's unlikely we'll see this keyboard released outside of Japan, but it's an interesting take on Switch accessories that we haven't seen done before. Perhaps one of the American or European accessory manufacturers will make something similar for the rest of the world to enjoy. Until then, you'll just have to stick with admiring this one from afar. Perhaps when Dragon Quest XI finally arrives in the West we'll have a use for it.
