Nintendo's Official SNES Switch Controllers Are Back In Stock, But You Might Want To Hurry

If you subscribe to the Nintendo Switch Online service, you got two new SNES games to play today, as Pop’n TwinBee and Smash Tennis break the months-long drought of new classic games in the Switch’s SNES library. To celebrate, you might be looking to grab the official SNES Switch controller from Nintendo, available only to Online members. Thankfully the controllers just happen to be back in stock, but you’ll probably want to snag one before they’re gone again.

Each time the controllers have been available over the past few months, they’ve sold out extremely quickly. The latest restock has been live for a couple of days, though, so it appears Nintendo may have more available than usual. Still, it’d be smart to snag one as soon as possible if interested.

Official SNES controllers for Switch mimic the original design while adding updated features, including wireless functionality, a pair of shoulder buttons, and USB-C charging (cord included). The gamepads cost $30 each–not including shipping–and they are exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers (so make sure you log into Nintendo’s website when checking availability). There’s a four-controller limit per account as well.

If you miss out on picking one up or don’t have a Switch Online membership, accessory manufacturer 8BitDo has several great alternatives. The Sn30 ($36) uses the Game Boy Pocket color scheme and has virtually the same design as the official gamepad. The SF30 ($45) looks like an SNES controller but adds a pair of joysticks, and the SN30 Pro+ ($48.33)–which made GameSpot’s best Switch controllers list–adds both longer handles and joysticks to create a more modern controller design.
