Nintendo Switch Is Getting NES Controllers

They'll come in packs of two, including both a right and left controller, for $US60 (local pricing not available at the time of writing). They will become available for order as a special offer to online service subscribers at an undisclosed date.

However, you'll need to shell out between £3.99 ($3.99) and £17.99 ($19.99) for the online gaming service, which kicks off next week.

While that's a slight bummer, the fact you can use classic controllers with these games is a nice touch.

The service also unlocks access to a library of NES games, including Super Mario Bros.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Every classic NES game will support voice chat via the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.

The much anticipated online gaming service for the popular Nintendo Switch has a start date: September 18. You can also watch the event on Nintendo's Twitch channel.

It'll be free for the first week but after that it'll cost £3.49 a month, £6.99 for three months, or £17.99 for a year.

While Switch Online will rid of the ability to play online multiplayer games for free, Nintendo is assuring users that not all online features will require a subscription from September. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18.
