Nintendo announced during its latest Nintendo Direct livestream that a library of Super Nintendo games will be available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers at no additional cost beginning today, September 5.

Much like the NES games that already available on Switch, you’ll need to be a subscriber to Nintendo’s online service. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can get Nintendo Switch Online for free still, though that deal ends soon.
As was rumored when an FCC filing was uncovered, Nintendo will be selling a version of the original SNES controller for the Switch. It will be available for $30 USD, though we don’t yet know when it will go on sale. This will only be available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, but it isn’t required to play the games above.
Even more SNES games are also on the way, though it’s unclear if they’ll arrive monthly, as has been the trend with NES Online games.
