PC gamers win as classic Nintendo controller support comes to Steam

Here’s a plot twist we didn’t see coming – Nintendo Switch Online’s exclusive classic controllers can now be used on Steam.

Nintendo Switch Online subscribers are eligible to purchase wireless retro controllers from Nintendo’s store. Until now, they were only usable on Nintendo Switch because they were tailor-made for use with the subscription service’s various retro libraries.

However, in the latest Steam client update notes (opens in new tab), Valve confirms that “support for Nintendo Online classic controllers” has been added. The oddly-worded patch note didn’t remain so for long. A Valve spokesperson confirmed to The Verge (opens in new tab) that all of these pads – NES, SNES, N64, and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive – are supported.
