Skull & Co. Gaming
Skull & Co. was established by a group of young people who love video games.
We were one of the very first companies to design ergonomic grips/protective cases for Nintendo Switch.
If you search for us on the Internet, you will find that we launched a Kickstarter campaign - “GripCase” - in June 2017 which gained support from thousands of gamers worldwide. Soon thereafter, we launched our second campaign - “Jumpgate” - a fully functional mini dock which was also a huge success!
Our team comprises Designers, Engineers, and Sourcing Managers, but most importantly, we are gamers.
It all started when we realized that most gaming accessories are designed by engineers, rather than players, so we decided to design our own products. Who better to design the perfect accessories than gamers themselves, right? And so, Skull & Co. was born!
Our primary goal is to make premium accessories that are not only unique and inspired, but also affordable to gamers worldwide.
Skull & Co. - For gamers today, tomorrow, and into the future.
GripCase - The First Campaign By Skull & Co.
Launched on June 21, 2017
Nintendo Switch is an awesome gaming console, we love it! It provides different gaming modes to fulfill players’ needs, allowing us to enjoy the games anywhere, anytime.
Handheld mode has always been our favorite, but we found that because of the SWITCH’s size and flat back, it’s difficult to hold the console and play for long periods of time without our hands getting tired.
This got us thinking - why not make a case not only to protect the SWITCH, but also to provide two comfortable grips, just like the PS4 and XB1 controllers?
So, the GripCase was created to enable gamers to play for hours without experiencing hand fatigue.

Jumpgate - The Second Campaign By Skull & Co.
Launched on July 26, 2018
The Jumpgate is a sleek and portable dock that has an ingenious design. It can easily switch between dock and hub mode to work with your Nintendo SWITCH, laptop and smart phone.
We spent 8 months ensuring that the Jumpgate Dock and AC adaptor are safe to use. Here are the tests we ran:
100 hours of non-stop charging test: We tested the PD (power delivery) chips in the Jumpgate Dock and AC adaptor to see if they delivered the proper volt and ampere to the SWITCH according to its battery level.
Firmware update test: We updated the firmware when the console was connected with the Jumpgate Dock.
