Nintendo has announced a new line of pastel Joy-Con controllers.

The Pastel Pink/Pastel Yellow and Pastel Purple/Pastel Green sets will launch on June 30.

They’ll be released on the same day as party game sequel Everybody 1-2-Switch, which was also revealed on Friday.

The follow-up to 1-2-Switch, which was a launch title for Nintendo’s latest console, features “a host of weird and wonderful minigames”, according to the platform holder.

“In those games, you’ll use your Joy-Con controller or smart device in fun and unique ways, earning points for your team. In time-honoured fashion, the team with the most points gets to claim the glory!”

Customise your #NintendoSwitch with these new Joy-Con controller colours, coming 30/06!
