Nintendo Switch wireless NES controller preorders start next week

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo Direct Rescheduled, Switch Online Launches September 18

NINTENDO HAS CONFIRMED that its long-awaited Switch Online service is arriving next week.

Switch Online is the Nintendo's unimaginatively-named subscription-based online service. Nintendo added that the Switch's online service will launch on September 18.

With a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can play enhanced NES™ games the way they're meant to be played-using Nintendo Entertainment System-style controllers!

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

Much like the Switch's Joy-Con controllers, the wireless NES pads can be recharged by simply slotting them into the sides of your Switch console. Nintendo also stated that it will update the NES library with more titles in the months ahead, so fingers crossed that we'll see classics like Castlevania and Contra make the rounds, along with a few obscure favorites.
