Nyko announced on Tuesday that it will soon offer a line of products related to the NVIDIA Shield portable gaming console. Set to arrive this summer and later this year, the accessories are designed to make things easier for gamers on the go. Nyko, attending E3, is showing off the new products to those in attendance, promising price and more specific launch details at a later date.
Details pulled from the press release:
The SHIELD Dock provides a sleek and easy alternative for powering the device and utilizing its HDMI capabilities. Simply place the unit into the dock and SHIELD will begin to charge while outputting to the attached display. The SHIELD Dock is powered by the same AC adapter that ships with SHIELD, and features a full-sized HDMI port allowing for easy connection to any HDTV screen. The SHIELD Dock will be released later this year.
Nyko is also showing two separate cases for SHIELD. The Travel Case is an EVA soft case while the Shell Case is a high-impact hard case. Both cases fully encapsulate SHIELD, providing total protection. A detachable accessory bag is included to store the AC adapter and any necessary cables while traveling. An included carabineer allows the case to be conveniently attached to a laptop bag or backpack. Both the Travel Case and Shell Case will be available this summer.
The Power Kit provides all the necessary adapters and cables to recharge SHIELD at home, while traveling, or in the car. The kit includes one AC adapter, one car adapter and one extra-long Micro USB cable with Velcro strap. The Power Kit is an ideal replacement or secondary bundle for those looking to recharge SHIELD. The Power Kit will be available this summer.
