The NexTemplo team were brought together out of their long-time love of Nintendo gaming, and their desire to create a much more streamlined approach to Nintendo Switch accessories. Not just with regards to aesthetics but also to functionality. The Switch is famed for its clunky and ugly range of official and third-party accessories, and this is where the NextTeplo Gaming Kit comes in clutch.
The NexTemplo 4-in-1 Gaming Kit features some incredibly handy peripherals, including a compact charging dock, a specialized HDMI cable, a Bluetooth receiver, and a pair of gaming easrbuds. And the best part is that all the peripherals share a similar look, making them delightfully easy on the eyes while fitting comfortably inside their low-profile carrying case.
Your One-Stop-Shop for the ultimate Nintendo Switch Experience
The NexTemplo Gaming Kit aims to be THE all-in-one solution for your Nintendo Switch needs, featuring peripherals that the developers believe would benefit the console and its users immensely.
Between its Bluetooth audio, custom HDMI cable, charging dock, wireless gaming earbuds, microphone, USB-A converter, and carrying case, this kit is chock-full of all kinds of peripherals for a variety of scenarios.
One Case To Rule Them All
The NexTemplo carrying case boasts enough room to store all the peripherals in your kit plus your games, thanks to its spacious zippered mesh pocket and generous 20 cartridge slots. With this case, you’ll be able to effortlessly bring along your Nintendo Switch and all of its essentials, anywhere you go.
Use Your Favourite Bluetooth Speakers or Earphones
NexTemplo utilizes Bluetooth 5.0 technology, allowing you to use your favourite pair of wireless earphones or a beefy Bluetooth speaker with your Nintendo Switch console.
Bye Bye Bulky Dock
The Switch dock is a cool piece of equipment, don’t get me wrong. But it’s more than a little bulky and can be quite a pain to carry around when you’re on the go. Luckily enough, the NexTemplo kit includes a custom-made, 5.9-foot long HDMI cable that connects directly to your Switch via its USB Type-C port, allowing you to game on any HDMI-capable display of your choosing without the need for that unwieldy dock.
Stay Charged While You Play
This kit comes with its very own charging dock that’s wonderfully portable and low-profile. Its 3.0 Power Delivery system ensures that your Switch juices up extra quickly and the dock props up your console in tablet mode so you can continue gaming without worrying about your battery.
Ultra-Low Latency Audio
By incorporating 32-bit RISC Codecs, NexTemplo’s Bluetooth audio and gaming earbuds feature ultra-low sub 49 ms latency, allowing you to enjoy high-quality audio with unnoticeable delay.
Not Limited To The Nintendo Switch
While the NexTemplo kit was certainly made for the Switch console, its peripherals work just fine with other devices as well. The earbuds function perfectly with most smart devices, the HDMI cable can be used for presentations and conferences, and the USB-A converter can be used with devices that don’t feature a USB Type-C port.

It doesn’t take more than a quick glance at the kit to realize that NexTemplo is head-over-heels with the colour black. Pretty much all the peripherals sport a jet-black paint job – carrying case included – with the only exception being the spiffy-looking earbud and audio receiver case, which is saucer-shaped and has red and blue circles on its sides and the NexTemplo logo right at its centre.
The audio receiver boasts a similar design and fits snuggly inside an indentation along the bottom of the earbud case. The carrying case shows off the brand name and logo on its handle and features a few red linings when opened, though everything else is plain black like the rest of the peripherals.
What’s it like to use?
All the peripherals included in the NexTemplo 4-in-1 Gaming Kit are plug-and-play, making them exceedingly easy to use no matter how technologically challenged you may be. Connect your HDMI cable to your Switch and a display and you’re ready to game. Seat your Switch on the dock and plug it into a power source and you can play while charging. Plug in the audio receiver and put on those earbuds and you’ve got yourself low-latency audio. It’s as simple as that.
NexTemplo started off with the lofty goal of cramming everything you’ll need for your Switch into a carrying case that’s only a few times thicker than the console itself. For the most part, it manages to succeed in this endeavour, allowing you to bring your Bluetooth audio receiver, HDMI cable, charging dock, wireless gaming earbuds, microphone, and a handy USB-A converter with you without having to jam them all into a mid-sized backpack.
They also all share a similar all-black colour scheme, making your whole setup look a whole lot neater, albeit a bit on the bland side. As Switch kits go, the NexTemplo 4-in-1 Gaming Kit is as comprehensive as they come, and largely makes good on its promise of being an all-in-one Nintendo Switch solution
