Update (6th March 2020, 11:10 BST): The SNES controllers for Nintendo Switch are available once again in Europe. Nintendo notes that it only has “limited availability“, so make sure to act fast if you want one:
Delivery is expected between 08/03/2020 and 17/03/2020, and shipping costs will apply. Remember – you’ll only be able to add one to your cart if you’re logged in with an account subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online.
Update (2nd Oct 2019, 15:00 BST): Nintendo of Europe has now revealed that a “small amount” of additional stock for the Nintendo Switch SNES controllers will be released in Europe. It has also apologised for issues faced by those who unsuccessfully tried to get their hands on one a couple of days ago in a statement shared on social media:
30th Sep: “We’re aware that some users are having difficulty ordering the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers for SuperNES – Nintendo Switch Online, even though they qualify for purchase. We’re looking into it and apologise for any inconvenience.
2nd Oct: “Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers. A small amount of additional stock will be added soon, and we are still investigating the purchasing issues some users experienced. Please stay tuned for updates.”
Original Article (30th Sep 2019, 14:15 BST): Those lovely looking SNES-style controllers for Nintendo Switch are now available to pick up in the UK and across Europe.
Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can go ahead and pick up a maximum of four controllers to relive all of the games in the new SNES catalogue in style. The controllers are full size and wireless, and they’re available to buy as we speak for £26.99 / 29.99€ before shipping (which appears to be a rather hefty £8.90):
You’ll get one controller and one USB cable in the box. Delivery is expected between 2nd and 11th October. It’s also worth noting that you’ll need to update your Switch to Version 9.0 before you can use the new controllers with your console.
Will you be getting one? Or four? We’d act fast – the North American ones sold out super-quickly.
