Nintendo is now taking orders for those fancy new wireless Super Nintendo controllers for Nintendo Switch. They're $30 each, there's a limit of four per account, and you need to be a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscriber to even take part in this nostalgia-fueled impulse buy, but there you go.

The gamepads come with a USB cable for charging (or you can use a Nintendo Switch AC adapter) and they'll begin shipping on September 18, 2019. There's a $5 shipping fee – at least there was for me.
I feel a little silly ordering one of these knowing full well I have an SNES Classic sitting somewhere in my closet, but that's how it goes. The price is right and I love the Super Nintendo too much to sit this out.
