Nintendo unveils classic NES controllers for Switch

Nintendo unveils classic NES controllers for Switch

The wireless NES controllers can be pre-ordered via Nintendo's Switch Online webpage from September 18 (September 19 in Australia) and have an expected ship date of December 2018.

Nintendo's also teasing "20 NES games with added online play for the first time ever" as soon as the service debuts, but so far hasn't indicated which titles we'll be getting first. Once September 18's updated is installed, you won't be able to unlink the profiles anymore.

Due to an unfortunate and devastating natural disaster in Japan this past week, Nintendo made a decision to reschedule its Nintendo Direct presentation which was planned to stream on Sep 6. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. Ultimate, some more info about that new Yoshi game, and if you're feeling really lucky, an Animal Crossing Switch announcement.
