Nintendo gave a quick recap of their new online service during today’s Nintendo Direct. While most of the information was old, Nintendo revealed some brand new NES-Style controllers for the system that will be compatible with the classic NES titles available through the service.

The new controllers can connect wirelessly and are compatible with the Switch’s charging dock, much like the joy-cons. The controllers will be available in a bundle for $59.99 on September 18th when the Switch’s online service officially launches.

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
