The SNES Nintendo Switch controller is now available for purchase in the UK. The new controller is exclusively available to Nintendo Switch Online members and is designed to be used with the Super NES games that are available as part of the service.
With a Nintendo Switch Online paid membership, you can purchase Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers for Nintendo Switch and play Super NES™ games in authentic fashion! These full-size, wireless controllers offer the perfect way to enjoy classic Super NES games.
The SNES Nintendo Switch controller includes a USB cable that can be used to charge the device, and orders are limited to four controllers per Nintendo account.
If you plan on picking up the controller, keep in mind that you need system update 9.0 NUP to use the device on your console. The controller, which very much mimics the look of the original SNES controller, is available for £26.99. This price includes VAT but excludes shipping charges.
The full list of SNES games available as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service are:
- Brawl Brothers
- Demon’s Crest
- Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3
- Star Fox
- Super E.D.F. Earth Defense Force
- Super Mario Kart
- Yoshi’s Island
- Super Puyo Puyo 2
- Super Tennis
- Breath of Fire
- Kirby’s Dream Course

Much like the NES games that are available, the games include a rewind function that allows you to jump back a few seconds in time. I’m sure playing these older games on the special SNES controller for the Switch is going to feel fantastic.
You can order the controller today from the My Nintendo Store.
