The Nintendo Switch NES Controllers Are Now Available To Pr…
If you’re wanting to play the Nintendo Switch Online’s selection of NES games in style, then you’ve probably been keeping an eye on the recently announced NES-style controllers for the console. The good news for European players is that the controllers are now available to pre-order directly from the My Nintendo store.
With the Online service now very much in action, we’ve finally had just over a day-or-so with the Netflix-style NES catalogue on Switch. While many of us are feeling rather tired of playing the same old games over and over again on each Nintendo system, we have to admit that the execution of the new service is utterly fantastic, with all 20 of the first batch of games being incredibly accessible at lightning speeds.
So, if you’re wanting to get the most out of the experience, make sure to put a pre-order down on the new peripherals. To find them, simply head to your specific region’s My Nintendo Store website (a quick online search should point you in the right direction) and you’ll find them available for £49.99 / €59.99. As examples, here’s the link for UK customers, and one for those living in Germany.
The box includes two controllers for the price, and the first batch of orders are expected to “reach European customers after mid-December”. If you want to get a bit of money off your new purchase, make sure to check out the recently-released My Nintendo Store vouchers which can be purchased with Gold Points. Remember that, in order to buy these, you’ll need to have purchased an online subscription – the currently available free trial does not count as a valid subscription for this offer.
Are you tempted to grab a set of the controllers? Are you happy playing your NES games with the Joy-Con instead? Let us know below.
