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.
