An FCC Filing Points Towards A Wireless SNES Controller For Nintendo Switch

A new FCC filing has revealed an upcoming wireless SNES controller for Nintendo Switch, possibly hinting at plans to release Super Nintendo games for the system.

Resetera user Link83 discovered the new filing (which is required for the controller’s release in the US) after setting up an alert for any Nintendo FCC ID filings. Much of the documentation is confidential, but the accompanying image matches the SNES controller’s iconic shape, while the appearance of the “HAC” model number notates its potential as a Switch peripheral, since all other Switch hardware and accessories use the same model number.

Nintendo released a similar NES controller for the Switch 12 months ago when NES games started appearing for subscribers to Nintendo Online. This new controller might signal the arrival of SNES games to the Switch’s virtual library, with an accompanying controller letting you relive the days of playing Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid with a familiar peripheral in-hand.

Nintendo hasn’t officially announced the controller in any capacity yet, but we’ll keep you updated on when they do. In the meantime, you can keep up to date on all Nintendo Switch news right here:
