A new FCC filing has revealed the upcoming wireless SNES Controller for the Nintendo Switch, possibly indicating plans to release Super Nintendo games for the system.
Reset user Link83 discovered the new filing (required for release of controller in the US) after placing an alert for any Nintendo FCC ID filings. Most of the documentation is confidential, but the accompanying image matches the iconic shape of the SNES fighter, while the appearance of the "HAC" model number cites its potential as a peripheral of the Switch, as all other Switch hardware and accessories use the same model system.

Nintendo released a similar NES Controller for the Switch 12 months ago when NES games started for subscribers to Nintendo Online. This new controller comes with the advent of SNES games in the Switch's virtual library, with an accompanying controller that lets you bring back the days of playing Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid with a familiar peripheral at hand.  Nintendo has not yet officially announced the controller in any capacity, but we will keep you updated when they do. In the meantime, you can keep up with all the Nintendo Switch news right here:
