The Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers will arrive in a two-pack.

A year and a half after launching, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting an official online service.

Joy-Con will be fully compatible with these games - but for those who want their controller input a little more angular, Nintendo's got you covered here.

Considering the popularity of Chrome and Firefox, Microsoft's tact to shame users into using Edge isn't going to be well received. Interestingly, the Install Anyway button has a grey background while the Open Microsoft Edge has a bright blue background.

We also no know that the starting library of NES games will also include third-party stuff like Double Dragon, Gradius, and River City Ransom. Other games will have the standard-fare multiplayer enhanced for online multiplayer.

The wireless NES controllers can be pre-ordered via Nintendo's Switch Online webpage from September 18 (September 19 in Australia) and have an expected ship date of December 2018. These controllers are modeled after the original NES ones and can be attached to the Nintendo Switch console to be recharged just like the joycons.
