Earlier this year, Nintendo revealed a set of wireless NES controllers for the Switch that would be available exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online members. Now, members can pre-order the controllers for when they release in December.
The pack comes with two controllers and costs $59.99. You must be a Nintendo Switch Online Member to buy the controllers and each account is limited to one pack of controllers, meaning that you won’t be able to purchase more than two controllers. The controllers have the same layout as the classic NES controllers and can be attached to the side of the console to charge, just like regular Joy-Cons.
The Nintendo Switch Online service gives players access to a library of NES games that will increase each month. The titles currently available include Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Balloon Fight River City Ransom, Tecmo Bowl and more. For a full list of the NES games available on the service, visit Nintendo’s website here.
Player’s pricing options for the Nintendo Switch Online service are $19.99 for 12 months, $7.99 for three months or $3.99 for one month. In addition to NES games, members also get access to online play on the Nintendo Switch. However, it’s worth noting that Fortnite is an exception that doesn’t require a subscription to play online.
