Wireless NES Controllers For Switch Will Only Work With Switch Online NES Games

Wireless NES Controllers For Switch Will Only Work With Switch Online NES Games

We have some sobering news for Switch owners looking to purchase the newly-announced wireless NES controllers.

A blurb on Nintendo’s website has confirmed some huge limitations on how the controllers can be used.

Please note: Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers can only be used while detached from the Nintendo Switch system, and only to play NES – Nintendo Switch Online games. Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers can be charged by attaching to the Nintendo Switch system.

While expected, it’s a little disappointing that Nintendo will not be letting other titles (like indie games) use the controller. Overall, it looks like these wireless NES controllers will only be useful for die-hard fans of NES classics.
