Apart from the Joy-Cons being made from aluminum, there are some slight nods to past Nintendo hardware. The right Joy-Con has four lines milled towards the bottom, reminiscent of the speaker grill on the original Game Boy.
The left Joy-Con also opts for a D-pad design, instead of the four-button layout Nintendo defaults to. And over on the back, it has indented lines running across also giving it that DMG Game Boy aesthetic.
The aluminum Joy-Con shells don't come cheap. The shells alone are $99. Metal buttons are another $22. And that's before taxes and shipping. Apparently, that's the cost of boutique luxury gaming hardware.
YouTube channel Macho Nacho Productions has put out an excellent video giving an in-depth tour of the Joy-Cons. It's definitely worth checking out.
