Hoping to utilize your Switch NES controllers with games besides NES titles on your Switch? Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it has been confirmed that the controllers will only work with the Switch Online NES games. This news comes via the Nintendo of Australia official site:
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.
Does this make or break your decision to purchase a set of NES controllers? Let us know in the comments below and come by and drop a line in our Community forums!
Hope you guys are having a spectacular weekend!
