Nintendo is trying to break through the stream of Kes 2020 announcements with a new product of its own: the Nintendo Switch Pen.

It's not exactly groundbreaking or exciting, like, say, color-changing, electrochromic glass-packaging swindle the concept of one phone, but it's still the official product for the Switch, which was launched nearly three years ago. It's unclear why Nintendo is finally selling its own stylus for the switch, but a critic noted that it will launch on February 3 for £6.99 ($9) via the Nintendo UK store.
The stylus can be used with compatible games including Super Mario Maker 2. Nintendo specifically described the switching stylus - which is not included with the switch console - as "the perfect tool for sketching Super Mario, of course you've always dreamed of in manual mode." The retail listing for the new product also confirms that it won't work with the Nintendo Switch when it's docked.

Keep in mind the classic handheld Nintendo consoles, like the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, but each came with a stylus. The switch, on the other hand, didn't have them; you could buy them separately at all times, except for a couple of random bundles.
With a stylus, you may find it easier to use the manual switch mode.
