Wireless SNES controller appears in FCC database

It's nearly been a year since Nintendo Switch Online launched and brought with it a library of NES games that has steadily grown ever since. Now $299.99 at AmazonThis new version of Nintendo Switch offers up to three more hours of battery life without needing a recharge.

According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal this month, Sharp said its IGZO display will be used in Nintendo Switch in the future.

A new FCC filing has revealed an upcoming wireless SNES controller for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo now allows subscribers to its $20-a-year Nintendo Switch Online service to be able to download and play a wide assortment of NES games - and even sells NES controllers that work with its latest console. 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. And if SNES controllers are coming, it would only make sense that SNES ports are in the works as well. Unfortunately, as Link83 notes, numerous documents in the filing are meant to be confidential until next year, so we may very well be waiting until 2020 for the SNES wireless controller to actually make its way to store shelves.
