Switch SNES controllers sell out overnight

NewsNintendoRetro      SNES Controller for Switch Sold Out!
     
     
       By Jedd Cortes

Nintendo recently expanded the Switch's selection of games available with its online subscription service to include Super Nintendo games, and soon you can enjoy them the way Miyamoto would want you to - with an official SNES controller from Nintendo. A large part of the controller's appeal is retro simplicity, but this feature also renders it ineffective for playing more complex contemporary titles.

At Comcast's 2019 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference, Chairman and CEO of Universal Parks & Resorts Tom Williams provided new details on Super Nintendo World and how it will "redefine what a park experience is like". It is temporarily out of stock for now, but stay tuned for a restock. Then this is just a tantalizing hook dangling in front of your eyes, daring you to spend even more money on a ceaseless urge to play very old video games.

We'll probably cave and order at least one SNES controller to hammer out a few solid hours of Yoshi's Island.

The SNES controller is not yet available in Europe but the sale should start in the coming weeks, certainly before the end of the year. As for the fifth game, following the included link shows that upcoming Switch release Overwatch will also have a bundle. Orders will begin shipping on September 18, based on availability.
