The new controller is designed specifically for the NES games available on the Switch console, enabling buyers to "play like old school gamers did back in the day", the company explains.

Before you start paying, Nintendo is offering a week free for you to see if it's something you really want to pay for. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September.

ESPN's Josina Anderson, however, was able to get a little bit of information out of someone in Green Bay or close to Rodgers. That's a huge game in the division, of course, so Green Bay will take every edge it can get by keeping the Vikings guessing.

Two controllers are included in the package offered on Nintendo's online store, although it is important to note that these devices do not function as Joy-Cons.

Switch Online is the Nintendo's unimaginatively-named subscription-based online service. Individual membership is separated into three tiers: $3.99 for one month; $7.99 for three months and $19.99 for 12 months. Prior to this change, you should verify that your Nintendo Account or your childs Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile. The app allows players to voice chat with friends while playing certain games, with the example shown as Mario Tennis Aces. Exclusive gear for Splatoon 2 will be given to anyone who purchases a 1yr membership, starting in early October. Leave your comments below.
