The Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers will arrive in a two-pack. The beloved GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion got a sequel and remake on 3DS, and now the series will continue on Switch. No word yet if they'll be given any sort of retail release. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. You can check out some images of the controllers in the gallery below. What's more, you can sync them up with your Switch and actually plug them into the sides, so you can charge them in-between sessions, then use them for play again.

Nintendo had previously revealed that the Nintendo Switch would eventually require an online subscription similar to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live in order to play games online.

The Nintendo Switch Online service will let subscribers play online multiplayer games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 online.

Nintendo's most recent Direct has so far been met with much enthusiasm; the subreddit r/NintendoSwitch, for example, has been flooded with excitement and news.
