Nintendo Switch is getting wireless NES controllers

Thankfully, we can have our cake and eat it too.

Another Animal Crossing character joins the fray. If the teasers are anything to go by, it's going to look absolutely bangin'.

Nintendo Switch is now available, while the Online service is set to launch on September 18, 2018, with a 7-day free trial.

You can pick up New Super Mario Bros. Ultimate roster to dates for upcoming games and more port news. However, for Super Smash Bros. enthusiasts, there was some important news about when they can expect to get their hands not only on the title but some themed hardware too.

The new controller will start shipping to users in a bundle of two starting mid-December.




The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles. Those cloud saves, however, will be lost if a customer allows their subscription to lapse.

When asked for comment by Kotaku UK, Nintendo replied: "Nintendo does not comment on rumour and speculation", but, even in the absence of official word, it seems pretty obvious that the company has prepared to eventually release SNES controllers for Switch (which also means SNES games).

Those after a truly authentic retro feel will nearly certainly want to pick up Nintendo's latest accessory - wireless NES controllers. Retailing at $39.99 (£35) the game features the player as the mayor, focussing on urban planning and city management issues such as transportation and traffic congestion. As of late, that includes the way it shows off the future of its games and consoles.

Square Enix is bringing a bunch of games from the Final Fantasy series to both Switch and Xbox One.
