Nintendo Switch Classic NES Controllers

Sep 17, 2018

Category: Tech

For fans of retro gaming, Nintendo’s announcement that they’re starting an online subscription game-streaming service was huge news. And now, the brand has solidified our excitement with some matching hardware: a pair of Switch-compatible controllers based on those that came with the original NES.

Fortunately, the spot-on styling is the only thing about these controllers that’s retro. There are no wires, whether you’re playing or charging, and they slide right onto the Switch’s base to charge just like regular Joy Con controllers. Unfortunately, you have to be a subscriber to their new streaming service in order to get your hands on them, as they only work with the online catalog of games (though we hardly think that’s an issue for any interested parties). They’ll be available to pre-order September 18 for $60 a pair via Nintendo’s website.

Purchase: $60
