When the digital NES game library for Switch Online was revealed, Nintendo announced it would be releasing a pair of wireless NES controllers. If you’re still not convinced, perhaps the above video will change your mind.
Presented by Nintendo Treehouse staffer JC Rodrigo, the short clip takes the time to unbox the product and then reinforces how NES games were obviously designed to be played with NES controllers. This is followed up with instructions on how to buy these controllers online. To be eligible for this purchase, you’ll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online membership.
It’s no surprise to see Nintendo is eager to see more sales of this controller. In November, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé said they hadn’t even made the full library of NES games available yet and during a recent chat with Forbes he said the company would continue to “push on” with NES content next year.
