You can now use classic Nintendo Switch controllers on Steam


Nintendo Switch NES controller

Steam now supports Nintendos classic controllers released for the Switch.

The patch notes from Valve state: “Added support for Nintendo Online classic controllers”. That means you can use your NES, SNES, Mega Drive, or N64 wireless controllers with PC games.

If youre looking to grab a controller, though, theyre available exclusively on Nintendos store for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

Ironically, that means theyre unavailable as the My Nintendo Store is currently still unavailable in the UK, despite the planned maintenance concluding on 27th July.

Its unclear why this maintenance has occurred, though fans believe it involves the Collectors Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Even in the US, the N64 and “Genesis” controllers are out of stock, with no indication of when theyll return. The SNES controller costs $29.99, while a pair of NES controllers costs $59.99.

The support comes as part of a Steam update that also adds support for the Qanba Obsidian and Dragon Arcade Joysticks, as well as the HORI Fighting Stick mini 4.

There are a number of other small fixes too, check out the full update notes for more.
