FAMICOM Themed Nintendo Switch - Cheap but NOT EASY

3090 ratings | 158169 views
Replacing the housing shell case on your Switch sounds like an easy way to create a custom theme for your console, but don't be so sure about that. I took one for the team and tried it out. 🔔GET NOTIFIED: SUB! http://www.youtube.com/user/WulffDen?sub_confirmation=1 ▶️New Videos Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday! 🔴Wulff Den Live Every Wednesday at 9PM EST 🛍Support the channel!

You said the NES colors are less iconic, but the American audience is significantly larger so I beg to differ.

A bit late to the party here, but after a week of having my Switch, I bought the Atomic Purple shells. Doing everything carefully, it took me a solid 3 hours. Only thing I had an issue with, was with a defect in the right joy-con shell, but the issue is that it doesn't fit the sliding portion of the controller properly. It still works, I just can't tighten it down all the way.

I bought a used left Joy con so I could have a nice dpad with the basstop mod. I was able to successfully swap it out, but I stripped 2 of the tri wing screws and ordered replacement screws. Well, this is where I broke my joy con. I tried every possible trick to get the screws out but I ended up messing up big time and some how broke one of the ribbon cables for the SL and SR buttons. In my own opinion, this mod is most definitely not worth it. I'll stick with the Hori in handheld and maybe ask santy claws for the sn30 pro for Christmas. And thanks for always having such incredible content! Super glad I subscribed

Jon Martin (1 month ago)
Not trolling, But if anyone has a friend try asking them to do the shell swap. i was able to do both joycons in under an hour and with no issues. I think most of the issues come from not being comfortable doing this kind of work.

Jack Nish (2 months ago)
I did it with my switch and got the smoked transparent ones. I broke the ZL and L/- buttons (on the same ribbon). I bought just the replacement buttons on amazon for about $20. The buttons work and I cant tell a difference on the L/- buttons but the ZL button travels a little more and you have to press a little harder than before. I still thought it was completely worth it because I like how the transparent joy-cons look and how they are pretty unique.
Kevin H. (2 months ago)
For what it's worth, I had far fewer issues with my basstop joycon and backplate shells. Didn't break anything, though I had to reassemble the right one a couple of times because tightening one of the screws too much makes the + button stay pressed in, and I had to cut away a little bit of the top shells to get rid of a bulge where the new shell meets the joycon plastic rail piece.
Brian Stanley (2 months ago)
My PC building experience has prepared me for this ... now what colors ? Btw Wulff you looked very careless handing those joy cons lol no wonder they broke
Bradley Lemons (2 months ago)
just saying, this shell swap with my switch and both joycons took about 15 minutes, everything looks and works flawless. If you've dealt with building towers this isn't even a thing.

You didn't have to buy a new joycon. I have the same joycon connection issues from time to time. All you have to do is go to settings then scroll down to controller and select disconnect then reconnect. Works fine after that. Advice for other people are having joycon connection or registration issues
Donovan Slusser (2 months ago)
You need to have a delicate hand when it comes to disassembling and reassembling the Joy-Cons. Sure, people like Zack from JerryRigEverything make it look easy, but unless you have the proper tools, you could end up breaking your switch and voiding the warranty.

Lmfaooo 3 days?!? It took me an hour and I didn’t break anything it’s not that bad at all...you just need the proper tools and they need to be high quality tools so you don’t strip the tri-screws...the right joy con is a pain in the balls that I will agree on

i put on the see through atomic purple shelling, i always liked taking things apart and putting them back together, so the joy cons were pretty easy for me and got it done in about 2 hours. The only problem i had was putting the back plate on the switch because i stripped a screw badly, so i cant change it now. but the joycons look cool, and i think it was worth it, as long as you're careful and confident.

I spent $11 on a pdp protect and play skin. Gave me a screen protector with race tracks and mario kart logo, sins for my joy cons that make the gray pop more, and the back has an amazing red mario kart loading screen look, as well as a dock cover with a rainbow mario kart, all for $11. Buy that, dont buy this bs Bob worked on it didnt even make the thing look cool

I wouldn't try this, I replaced the housing of my 2007 PSP and that left it a buggy somewhat unplayable mess. I'm still trying to work out the kinks so yeah I'd rather not chance it on my switch 😂

The lesson of this is do not take your things apart lol
Chad DeVerger (4 months ago)
Lol this stuff is child play. Just flip those little doors and the ribbon will come right out. The triwing screws are stupid though, i stripped 2 of them ended up drilling them out. I swapped them out with the Philipp head the kit came with. If any of you are going to do this, just be gentle but firm with the small pieces. And go slow. The more you take your time and look at how everything is set up the better. It's honestly not that bad.

Ethan Westergard (4 months ago)
Its really not that hard to do housing swaps on the joycons, theres very many videos on youtube and ive done it multiple times and i havent broken a joycon yet, you may screw in the motherboard too tight in the joycons and that will keep the face buttons pushed down and the joycon lights wont do anything when you press any button and seem like you broke it, but all you need to do is not over tighten the screws and test the buttons before you completely assemble the whole thing, if you already have the tools to do the housing swap and you buy the housing id recommend to go for it, just handle it with care like you would any other electronic and it will come out fine, he made it seem much MUCH harder than it really is

Juan Galvan (4 months ago)
How did you break all that? Probably impatient and unexperienced. I did the clear mod with my Switch and yes it took me an hour and a half, but I got it first try. And I have NO experience working on electronics. But it is just unplugging and then plugging ribbons. Thats it. Everyone thinking about doing this, it is worth it. It is NOT as hard as this guy makes it seem. If you have experience with a screwdriver and patience, it is easy. This guy probably has never had to do something for his self in his whole life. Lol

The only way this would be worth it is if you took off the Switch logo and got a cool sticker that says Family Computer instead. That would be wild.

Oh this hurts to watch. As an electronic repair technician (fixing game systems, cellphones, computers, tablets, and other various electronics) watching you use a screw driver to lift that trigger ribbon cable hold down (6:02), the conductive "book binding"glue, and so many other little things just hurts. Next time use a plastic spudger, or guitar pick, or anything not metal... to lift those ribbon cable hold downs (also called a FPC back flip connector or Flexible Printed Circuit connector which is similar to a FFC connector (flexible flat cable) but those are more like what you see connecting laptop keyboards to the motherboard they are usually white with blue reinforced tips). I'm not saying I can do better but next time take your time and take lots of photos. Also I know ifixit had a guide on how to do this lang before you made this video so why not follow that? As a side note the ifixit kit you bought is great but the bits can and will strip if used everyday. If you want a very good set that will last generations then PB Swiss makes some great stuff but its insanely expensive like $200 for a set that only has a dozen or so useful bits and they are just phillips, slotted, and torx. Something a little cheaper is the WITTE Wittron set but its still $50 for 7 drivers. So the best priced for quality I'd say is the Nanch set. Its basically what you got but $20 and more durable. This wont last generations like the PB Swiss stuff will but it will last quite a few years with everyday use.

Alex Johnson (7 months ago)
I hope the line about the NES colors not being as iconic is sarcasm, because NES grey and black are pretty damn iconic. But yeah, the Joycons look like waaaaaay too much trouble to mod.

did this to mine with the transparent blue & the dpad mod, luckily nothing like that happened i did end up only using one spring on the ZL/ZR buttons, they still work perfectly fine though also i realized i put the minus button in backwards and i really don’t feel like going back in and fixing it 😞

Lol at this rate I think I'll just buy it off eBay already completed and with the software changing the color it's registered as. I might do the back shell though.
Jacob Fisher (10 months ago)
I did this with the atomic purple/clear kit with minimal problems. I had to partially disassemble one of the joy cons again because it kept shutting off, but one of the ribbon cables wasn't fully connected. My only real issue is that the triggers feel a little loose, but they're responsive, so no big deal. The whole thing felt like taking apart a smartphone, which I really enjoy. And the clear purple takes me back to great memories of my childhood Gameboy Color.
Calvin Wynn (10 months ago)
For that price I would have just went to Etsy and got custom joy cons and for just around how much you paid I could have got a d pad on the left one and it’s all done by people that do this all the time and they know what there doing... matter a fact ima buy the clear transparent joy cons soon

Lhûgion (10 months ago)
Took me 3 hours to just swap the JoyCon colors. But I used the gray middle piece, so it was basically cheat mode. I menaged to break the contacts of the joystick of the right JoyCon. "Luckily" I broke a left JoyCon a few days before and could just use it's joystick (even if it's labeled different than the right one). After all that trouble, I didn't dare to change the back of the switch. Just in case I might mess something up :D
Joeybsmooth (10 months ago)
Don't they have like decals you can put on your Switch, that do the same thing ?
