Nintendo Switch Online unlocks a ton of perks for your console, including a wide selection of classic NES, SNES, N64, and Sega games. Enjoy retro games with a pair NES gamepads at a discounted price. Nintendo is offering a $25 discount on its official NES gamepad two-pack until February 2nd, bringing its price down to just $35.

The replica NES gamepads have the exact same design and feel as the original NES controllers. They are wireless and feature two indented shoulder buttons. These retro gamepads must be attached to the Switch to charge, just like the Joy-Cons.

And, surprisingly enough, Nintendo’s official NES controllers can be used on a PC. These gamepads are great for retro-styled games that you want to emulate on your PC.

Unfortunately, the replica NES gamepads really only work with classic NES games. They won’t work with modern or indie games on the Switch. You can map the controller to other PC games. )

Buy Nintendo’s NES gamepad two-pack before February 2nd to get them for just $35. To purchase these gamepads, you will need a Switch Online subscription.
