Sega Genesis And N64 Controllers Now Available For The Nintendo Switch

By Anthony K

Ever since hand-held games became affordable, video games have been increasingly popular. About 50% of Americans use different types of electronic devices to play video games, and 10% of those who do so self-identify as gamers; those who regularly play video games and associate with the gaming community.

You’ll need the original controllers to play the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis titles that are available on Nintendo Switch Online. If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, you can now purchase the updated Nintendo 64 and Genesis controllers because Nintendo launched pages for them.


Along with the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, Nintendo has also introduced a pair of wireless Bluetooth controllers for the Switch. Only Nintendo Switch Online customers can purchase the gamepad from the 16-bit Sega Genesis and the one-of-a-kind controller from the N64, which was the first console to use analog joystick controls.

Nintendo fans may now play their favorite N64 games online with up to four other players, including Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, Yoshi’s Story,  Lego star wars, Mario Tennis, Minecraft, and Zelda. Streets of Rage, Strider, and the nostalgic Sonic Hedgehog are just a few more SEGA Genesis classics launched.

More than 100 vintage NES and Super NES games are still available to players through the membership service, which complements the existing Nintendo Switch Online features. These full-size wireless controllers are available for purchase, allowing gamers who prefer using the vintage SEGA Genesis and Nintendo 64 controllers to continue doing so.
