Update: The wireless SNES controllers are temporarily out of stock on the Nintendo website.


If you want to properly relive the glory days of the SNES on your Nintendo Switch, you must absolutely get the fancy wireless controllers Nintendo showed off during its most recent Direct broadcast.

The good news is if you live in North America, these authentic wireless versions are now available from Nintendo's official website for $29.99 USD. This offer is exclusive to Switch Online members and only four controllers per account can be purchased. They'll begin shipping out on 18th September.

Here's the official description:

Now you’re playing with super power. Enjoy enhanced Super NES™ games the way they're meant to be played—using a full-size Super Nintendo Entertainment System style controller! Available for purchase only by Nintendo Switch Online members, this wireless controller offers the perfect way to play these classic Super NES games.

In each box, you'll receive one Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controller and one USB cable. The recharging options for the controller are the included USB cable or the Nintendo Switch AC adapter.

Unfortunately, these controllers haven't been made available in the UK just yet. For more information, be sure to check out the Nintendo Life SNES controller pre-order guide.
