Coming soon will be a wireless old school style Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controller. This will be a special offer exclusively for paid Nintendo Switch Online members.

Although fans are sure to jump for joy over these game announcements, there are still many classic Nintendo games still unaccounted for on the Switch. One of the most popular requests is for Earthbound. But Nintendo are adding more and more games all the time. We think it’ll only be a matter of time before they do.
