LOS ANGELES - June 11, 2013 - Nyko Technologies ®, the premier gaming peripherals manufacturer, is unveiling their latest products at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). A stalwart exhibitor at the video game industry's headline event, Nyko is proud to announce a line of charging and video products for use exclusively with the ultimate gaming and entertainment portable, NVIDIA® SHIELD™.

"SHIELD is a unique piece of hardware; it's high performance gaming that meets portable entertainment," said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing, Nyko Technologies. "We are excited to be working with NVIDIA to provide SHIELD gamers unique ways to power, charge and enhance their devices."

Nyko's E3 2013 SHIELD accessory line-up includes:

The SHIELD Dock utilizes Nyko's patented dongle charging system to provide a sleek and easy alternative for powering the device and utilizing its HDMI capabilities. The dongle attaches directly to SHIELD, and works seamlessly with the device. Simply place the unit into the dock and SHIELD will begin to charge while outputting to the attached display. The SHIELD Dock is powered by the same AC adapter that ships with SHIELD, and features a full-sized HDMI port allowing for easy connection to any HDTV screen. Users can also pair a Nyko PlayPad with SHIELD while in the dock to turn the device into an ultra-portable console playing and streaming their favorite Android and PC titles. The SHIELD Dock will be released later this year.

Nyko is also showing two separate cases for SHIELD. The  Travel Case is an EVA soft case while the Shell Case is a high-impact hard case. Both cases fully encapsulate SHIELD, providing total protection. Each case is custom fitted to the exact specifications of the device and features a rubberized interior for added protection against bumps and scrapes. A detachable accessory bag is included to store the AC adapter and any necessary cables while traveling. An included carabineer allows the case to be conveniently attached to a laptop bag or backpack. Both the Travel Case and Shell Case will be available this summer.

The Power Kit provides all the necessary adapters and cables to recharge SHIELD at home, while traveling, or in the car. The kit includes one AC adapter, one car adapter and one extra-long Micro USB cable with Velcro strap. The Power Kit is an ideal replacement or secondary bundle for those looking to recharge SHIELD. The Power Kit will be available this summer.

Additional pricing and availability details will be released at a later time.

All of these products will be on display at Nyko's E3 booth located in the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall, #5000.
