It’s been about three months since we received classic games through the Nintendo Switch Online service, but the wait is almost over! On the 12th. Six more titles will be added in December, just in time for the family Christmas season. Additionally, wireless NES controllers will be on sale for a limited time at 50% off starting tomorrow. Great!
Watch the games on the road:
