It seems inevitable that the Nintendo Switch receive games from SNES, and now we have one more indication of this: a wireless controller similar to that of the Super Nintendo has been approved by the FCC, equivalent to Anatel in the USA. Rumors say retro games will arrive on the console via the Switch Online service, including Super Mario World and Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.
In the FCC documents, Nintendo asks that the photos of the accessory remain confidential until next year. However, there is a diagram available to the public which shows a control in the shape of the SNES joysticks. It features Bluetooth connectivity and has model number HAC-042; the code “HAC” is used for Switch accessories.
At the top of the controller, we see what appear to be ZL and ZR buttons; or this part could fit on the sides of the Switch. Nintendo launched two NES wireless controls last year that fit the handheld console, allowing you to play classic titles available via the Switch Online.
Switch Online should win Super Nintendo games
There are several signs that Nintendo will bring its SNES library to the Switch, especially since this has already happened on the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console. The company’s president, Shuntaro Furukawa, said at a meeting with shareholders that he is considering taking more retro platforms for the Switch Online subscription.
In addition, the Switch Online code hid mentions of 22 Super Nintendo games, such as Super Mario Kart, Yoshi’s Island, Star Fox, Super Metroid and F-ZERO. There was also a reference to Super Mario All-Stars, which brings together the first Super Mario Bros., The Lost Levels, two and 3.
Nintendo offers Nintendinho games through the Switch Online and, last year, launched NES controls exclusively for subscribers of the service. The design is the same as the original console, with A, B, L, R, directional, Select and Start buttons. The accessories work wirelessly via Bluetooth and charge the battery when plugged into the Switch. They are sold for $ 60 in the USA and Canada.
