Unboxing and impressions on the SNES controller for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Channel Nintendo Gaming channel has released an unboxing video and first impressions of the SNES controller for Nintendo Switch, now sold exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers at a cost of $29.99 / euro.

The unboxing concerns the American version of the Super Nintendo joypad, which as known differs from the European and Japanese one for a different color scheme (with purple instead of colored buttons). The controller replicates exactly the original pad of the console, to signal a slightly lower weight and the absence of cables, as it is a totally wireless joypad.

The SNES controller is compatible with all Super Nintendo games available now for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers:
