About a week ago, a sighting at the FCC revealed that Nintendo could be working on new controllers for the Switch console. It looks like we finally know what they are, as the company has since announced two brand new gamepads for the Switch in the form of the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis.
Given how fiercely Nintendo and Sega competed back then, it’s actually a little heartwarming to see that both somehow made up for each other, though Sega’s exit from the hardware business probably played a role in it too. Both controllers are wireless and cost $ 50 each.
However, it should be noted that these controllers cannot be bought by anyone. Much like back when Nintendo launched the NES controllers for the Switch in 2018, these new controllers can only be purchased by those who have subscribed to Switch Online, although we imagine there are likely some enterprising gamers out there Device most likely will be yours at an increased price.
There’s no word on the controller’s release, but with Nintendo releasing its Switch Online Tier Expansion Pack in October that unlocks N64 and Genesis games, we’re assuming these gamepads will likely come out around that time too, though we keep our eyes open for further information.
