Thanks to an FCC filing spotted last month, it seemed to suggest that Nintendo could be getting ready to launch an SNES controller for the Nintendo Switch. Given that the company had previously launched the NES controller for the Switch, this progression actually made a lot of sense.
If the idea of playing on an SNES controller appeals to you, you’ll be happy to learn that Nintendo has indeed announced a wireless SNES controller for the Switch. This looks more or less identical to the original controller with the added bonus of being wireless. However, it will only be available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
Speaking on Nintendo Switch Online membership, if you are subscribed to the service, in addition to announcing the controller, Nintendo also announced a bunch of classic SNES games that will also be coming to the console. There will be about 20 titles to choose from and they will be available for subscribers starting on the 5th of September.
Some of the titles that old school gamers might recognize include Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Star Fox, Super Soccer, and Super Tennis, just to name a few. We expect that more titles will be added, but these 20 titles should be more than enough to tide you over.
