The new and improved Nitro Deck+ for Switch has been announced, and pre-orders are live

Following the release of the Nitro Deck last year, premium brand CRKD has now announced the 'Nitro Deck+– Compatible with Switch OLED as well as the original model. Aside from the 'zero drift', this new and improved model comes with a 'range of new features' to enhance the overall experience.

These include improved ergonomics (including adjusting the position of the right joystick), the ability to now dock to a TV without an external dock, a built-in USB-C output and it comes with a USB-C to HDMI adapter. There are also two new 'Sidekick' buttons that allow for 'ultra-quick launch' and there is a new 'Easy Eject System' for removing the tablet.

Additionally, there's also an 'enhanced and adjustable' rattle system and Bluetooth – making it compatible with the CRKD app for firmware updates. This application will provide a “full range of customization options” from trigger and button programming. CRKD also points out how “the Nitro Deck+ can connect via a virtual wired USB-C connection or via Bluetooth when the Switch is inserted into the deck.”
