Nintendo made a $30 SNES-like wireless controller for the Switch and it’s coming soon
You’ll need to be a Switch Online subscriber to purchase one though…
With the announcement that SNES games are finally coming to the Nintendo Switch, you might be yearning to play those classics like you used to. Well, Nintendo thought so too and is bringing out a wireless SNES-style controller to use with your Switch.
Retro heaven awaits.
Nintendo made a wireless SNES controller for your Nintendo Switch
First spotted in an FCC filing a few weeks ago, the wireless SNES controller looks like you’d expect, just without the wire. That means wireless gaming, without a dongle. Man, I wish these existed growing up, I constantly tripped over controller cables…
- It’s the US colorway of the SNES controller, with the two-tone purple ABXY buttons
- They’ll be $29.99 each
- You need to be a Switch Online subscriber to buy one, just like with the wireless NES ones
- Each Switch Online subscriber can purchase up to four
- Nintendo hasn’t set a release date yet
Go bookmark the Special Offers page, cause these will probably run out quickly once the ordering button goes live.
If you don’t like the look of the official SNES one, 8bitdo has a whole range of wireless controllers that will work with the Switch. They even have dual thumbsticks, because you can be retro without being exact.
- GungHo is dropping a handful of games, including Puzzle & Dragons for the Switch – PAX West 2019
