Nintendo Switch Getting Classic NES Controllers

Nintendo Switch Getting Classic NES Controllers

If you've got between two and seven accounts, there's also the family plan option for US$34.99 (~RM144.91) a year.

Are you excited for Switch Online to hit, or are you just disappointed that you'll have to pay to play online soon? It's certainly an interesting tactic but one that is not entirely new, since for years now, Nintendo has been rewarding its loyal customers with exclusives through alternate rewards programs. While this means no more free multiplayer, it's also a service that, like PSN, will be giving you perks for subscribing. DOOM, Skyrim, Enter the Gungeon, the Binding of Isaac, and more have been ported to the Switch, and Nintendo is now adding Civilization VI, City Skylines, Warframe, Diablo 3, and a handful of indie titles.

During today's Nintendo Direct, the publisher confirmed that it would be bringing specially designed NES wireless controllers to the system, set to work with the 8-bit classics that will be offered via the Nintendo Switch Online network, which launches next Tuesday.

Will you be signing up for Switch Online once it debuts on September 18th? You can save a few bucks by opting for a three-month membership for $7.99 or a 12-month subscription for $19.99.

"Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time".

There are "standard" online subscription functionalities like cloud saves.

Alongside the release of the online service will come with NES-themed Joy-Cons. The aforementioned Splatoon 2 is one such title, unfortunately.
