Nintendo fans were brimming with anticipation in the lead-up to Nintendo Direct on September 6, where the company was expected to reveal new games and info about its Switch and 3DS platforms.

In the Nintendo Direct presentation showing off Nintendo Switch Online, Gradius, Double Dragon, and Mighty Bomb Jack were among the 3rd party games shown for the service.

Perhaps the more intriguing out of the two is the NES Controllers for the Switch. They will become available for order as a special offer to online service subscribers at an undisclosed date. If you decide that it is, then it's US$3.99 (~RM16.52) a month, US$7.99 (~RM33.09) for three months, and US$19.99 (~RM82.79) for a year.

While that's a slight bummer, the fact you can use classic controllers with these games is a nice touch.


Nintendo Switch Online has been a long time coming.

Alongside the release of the online service will come with NES-themed Joy-Cons. Other games will have the standard-fare multiplayer enhanced for online multiplayer. To start, those who get the 12-month subscriptions will also be getting download codes for exclusive Splatoon 2 cosmetics.

By ensuring that your Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile, you will be able to appropriately manage your save data, Nintendo Switch Online membership, and Nintendo eShop content.”.
