Nintendo has just sent its first set of NES orders for the Switch. Today, I got a pair, and found that they were much more useful than I originally thought they would.
Only the NES online orders that the NES orders will be available to the Nintendo Switch Online members recently launched. Because the service includes a bar free of NES 8-bit games like Super Mario Bros. a The Legend of Zelda, the controls are the perfect supply. These wireless and rechargeable controls are sold in pairs for € 60, and you can buy them through Nintendo Store.
The controls work the same as Joy-Cons: slide them to the sides of your switch, and charge immediately. (Yes, that does mean that they are not volatile, as the right is just going to the left slot and the other, but it can any player use anyway).
In this picture you can see the original NES (left) control, NES Classic (middle) control and control for the Switch (right). As with NES classic controls, those on the Switch appear the same as the original ones. They are difficult, robust, and exactly the same as 30 years ago. The main difference is that they have added two small L and R button at the top. You will not use them to play NES games, but they are also useful at other times.
Start NES the Switch with an order that has already paired, and the controls will appear on the screen: the L button will allow you to take collections, and the R button will take you back to the start menu. While playing, you can return to the main menu with the L and R. buttons. The NES software will always show you what buttons do what. (There is another other function that does not appear in this image, because it must do with the sound of the console: your Switch will emit 8-bit sounds when NES controls have elapsed connect).
Please note that these button changes for L and R are performed at software level within the NES application. That means, although you can use the NES keyboard to play another classical game, such as, for example, Sega Ages Phantasy Star, you will not be able to take a screen or return to the start menu. (You can always connect an additional Joy-Cons wirelessly and get close to you, to return to the menu or take screen screens).
So, when you're preparing the controls or the pairs into a wire, the system menu will show the NES commands. The above image shows how you look when you download both controls, and the result is this amazing incredible:
Certainly, you'll see this strange configuration and think: Can i play games like this?
Yes, you can. And in addition, Nintendo had so in mind that you would prefer to do that.
Check out the image above. Slide the NES drivers to the sides if you use the switch in a portable way, and the software itself will explain to you from that location. The arrows on the left change their orientation, so that the left comes up, and so on. A button on the left brings the button for holding; the right arrow will take you back to the Start menu. And you can play using the arrows on the left and the buttons on the right. It is not as comfortable as the mini Joy-Cons, but it allows you to use NES arrows in a portable way.
As you can imagine, this is a stubborn configuration for many games, as the A and B buttons on the right hand are now vertical. It may be worth if you play a one-button game like that Donkey Kong, but it will not serve you one like you Super Mario Bros. 3. But there's a solution for that:
Nintendo Switch continues to be renowned as the queen of customization by allowing you to use the left NES manager and Joy-Con's right to create the configuration Frankenstein Definitive It is not as comfortable as using Hori D-pad, but it works better than it appears.
And here's what we could call "Torture Mode".
These controls do everything you can expect from them – serve to play NES on your switch wirelessly – and then go further to do things that you would not expect them to do. As the controls are not just limited to the NES application, we may see some nappies for other games of the retro style switch that are compatible with the # These orders.
