Astro Gaming, the headset makers, have shown off their first unit developed in partnership with Nintendo — an A10 headset for Nintendo Switch whose design is taken from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Here’s a closer look:

Unfortunately for Zelda fans, this will not be available until the holidays. But it presages other Nintendo-themed peripherals that Astro says are on the way, including more headsets, speaker tags and other accessories. The two announced a multi-year partnership back in April.

Apparently that will include headsets themed for Super Mario Bros.:

And for Super Mario Bros. 3:

And another for the original Legend of Zelda:

Finding a good headset for Nintendo Switch can be difficult, mainly because the Switch routs chat through a mobile app. But the Breath of the Wild A10 will feature full chat capability on Switch “with a new discreet chat cable,” according to a news release. The unit has an omnidirectional mic and memory foam ear cushions.

Price was not mentioned, but Astro’s standard A10 headsets usually go for $59.99 and a Call of Duty-branded headset is currently $69.99.
