Retro gaming fans rejoice: Nintendo has brought back its SNES controllers for the Switch, perfect for your SNES Online library of vintage games.

The new release is a reimagined version of the original SNES controllers and are compatible with the Switch platform. While it’s been updated with ZL and ZR bumpers, four green LEDs at the bottom to indicate your player number, and wireless connectivity, much of the original design from the ’90s has been retained, with a dark grey D-pad and purple-shaded buttons against a lighter grey body. The controller is charged via a USB-C port and comes with a charging cable, but you can also charge it with your standard Nintendo Switch AC adapter.

Nintendo has already started taking orders for the SNES gamepad — which will retail at $30 USD each — and shipping for the first batch is slated for September 18. However, they’re currently only available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and each account can only purchase a maximum of four units. To place your order, head over to Nintendo’s site now.

For more gaming news, Square Enix has announced a turn-based classic mode for the Final Fantasy VII remake.
