You can now buy retro-style Super Nintendo controllers for your Switch

The Nintendo Switch Online Service selection of games has finally grown, and now you can play them as you did back in the early ’90s.

Nintendo has recently expanded its online selection of games to finally include Super Nintendo (otherwise known as SNES) games, instead of only its Nintendo Entertainment System titles.

Yet to get the proper nostalgic feel to these olden gems Nintendo has decided to release an official SNES wireless controller, but which a catch. The controller costs £26.99, and sadly they are exclusive to purchase to those who have a valid Nintendo Switch online subscription, trials do not work we’re afraid.

‘With a Nintendo Switch Online paid membership, you can purchase Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers for Nintendo Switch and play Super NES™ games in authentic fashion! These full-size, wireless controllers offer the perfect way to enjoy classic Super NES games,’ reads the product description.

It’ll no doubt frustrate fans from of the UK as these are not available to buy as of yet but those of you in the US you’re in luck, but they’re quickly selling out.

‘This product cannot be purchased yet, and more information will be available in the future. Please check back here later or follow our social media channels for the latest Nintendo Switch update,’ according to Nintendo’s website.

The patent was found last month, indicating a SNES controller was coming, but no official comment was made until recently when Nintendo of America posted on their official Twitter that they were now ready to buy for those in America.

Nintendo should update us soon when these SNES controllers are available to buy in the UK.
