Shortly after announcing their intention to re-release countless classic 8-Bit NES games as part of their premium Nintendo Network service, Nintendo offered their subscribers the chance to buy exclusive wireless NES controllers to play those games on. Well, ours arrived.

We’ve played these NES games on their original platform what do you say we crack these things open and give our initial thoughts about them?

You must have an active paid Nintendo Network online account to be eligible to purchase these controllers. They are only compatible with the Nintendo Switch’s NES game launcher.

Nintendo Switch Software Update 9.0.1 Released October 14, 2019

Nintendo has released a very minor system software update, version 9.0.1, for the Nintendo Switch that addresses unspecific bugs. The new update is not currently required to access Nintendo Network but it’s only a matter of time before it becomes required.

I recommend updating your Joy Con controllers’ firmware following the software update to improve performance. You can thankfully do that without having to leave the controller docked in the Switch tablet.
