The Nintendo Switch has a lot going for it with its large screen, removable controllers and its best selling point, its portability, but what if you want a unique stand while at home? Now out of the box, the Switch does offer you a kick stand for playing with others on the go or at home, but it’s not the best and lucky there is plenty of other stands or dock on the market that will do the job.
The next obvious direction the dock or stands could go is with a mini Arcade Cabinet, kind of like the icade for the iPhone. So today I bring you a few Nintendo Switch Arcade Cabinets that you can build yourself and a few you can buy.
