We finally tackle the almighty Joy-Con controller shell swap! This is a LONG tutorial as the process does take a while. With some time, patience, and the right tools on hand, performing a full Joy-Con housing swap isn’t all too bad! This will walk through taking apart each Joy-Con controller, swapping over the buttons, rebuilding the Joy-Con controllers, and of course with some tips and tricks sprinkled in the entire time. I would recommend to anyone who has never done this before to set aside about two hours to complete the full process.
