Nintendo unveils $60 wireless NES controllers for the Switch


The company sent out an email to all users Wednesday night with a reminder to ensure that all Switch profiles on all systems in the home are linked to the correct Nintendo Account, as going forward beyond Sep. Plus, you can enhance your online experience with features available through the smartphone app and receive special offers. For example, we now know that Nintendo Switch Online is coming September 18.
