A week in review

Written by Kieran Fifield

The final countdown

As the week draws to a welcome close, and the majesty of that most wonderful of things approaches, the weekend, my inaugural brand collaboration draws to a close.

Every day this week I have been reviewing content that was kindly sent to me by PowerA, an innovator in the field of gaming accessories.

Please note that all embedded images in this post are product links.

On Monday I reviewed the Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild stealth case for Nintendo Switch.

On Tuesday, it was the turn of the much sturdier offering, the Breath of the Wild travel case.

Unfortunately, this excellent product appears to have been discontinued.

On Thursday I got my hands on a wired controller.

To close the week I will be talking about a product that I never knew I wanted, but obviously I did.

Super Mario Bros. 3 pins.

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece on the 30th anniversary about what the game means to me, so receive these little gifts was a really lovely moment for me personally.

The design and build quality of the pins is exceptional, the metal they are made from is all smooth and polished and the paint job is flawless.

I received 4 packs and with a possible 8 pins to collect, to say the fear of duplicates loomed over me like a storm cloud was an understatement. Fortunately I only received 1 double so I got the chance to appreciate 3 unique designs.

As I mentioned, they are all absolutely stunningly produced and are brimming with personality.

Aside from the SMB3 range, PowerA have a whole array of different pins available. I’d assume the other franchises share the same excellent production values.


For a collector or just a fan of a particular gaming series, these are the kind of item that you want at least one of, and usually end up getting many more on top.

Before ending this, I’d like to thank my contact at PowerA, who took the time to respond to me when I reached out and gave me the opportunity to collaborate with such an iconic brand.

As well as all of that, he has been incredibly helpful and was always at the other end of an email, if I needed any assistance.

I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

To everyone who has stopped by this week thank you for your continued support. If you are reading this because you are Nintendo Switch gamer, please take the time to check out the wonderful and varied range of accessories that PowerA make.
