Nintendo unveils $60 wireless NES controllers for the Switch

Share

Nintendo has announced their Switch Online memberships will launch in Canada, the United States of America and beyond on September 18, 2018. More details about the service will be announced in the Nintendo Direct broadcast. Another is a download code for Splatoon 2 in-game gear.

Each controller can be used separately for any of the co-operative NES games you may play as part of the Switch online service.

Nintendo's most recent Direct has so far been met with much enthusiasm; the subreddit r/NintendoSwitch, for example, has been flooded with excitement and news. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. There will also be cloud-based saves. The information on Switch Online, however, still refers to voice chat only in reference to the app, meaning Nintendo might stick with this asinine idea in spite of the better options.

According to Nintendo's site, individual plans will go for about $4 a month, and $20 for a year.

This will be especially important if you have multiple Switch profiles in your house, such as those for children and other family members. From what we can tell from the Nintendo Direct presentation, they seem to be an accurate rendition of the classic console gamepads.
