    FCC requires this when you want to introduce new devices to the market. While it is a snes controller, it's not the same tech inside as the original at least not completely. Just making it wireless requires approval from the FCC to make and sell it.

    I'll gladly stay with 8bitdo's SN30 + RetroArch but I'm glad for all the others that hey can finally enjoy some SNES action as well on their Switch.

    I don't know what you mean for free. On the Wii, NES games cost $5 a pop

    What's wrong with 8bitdo controllers?

    What's wrong with emulators?

    They are not Nintendo? Isn't that a good thing?

    Wouldn't be much of a "First time" just import the bad localization script from the GBA version. Lol :P

    I doubt we will get All Stars, Nintendo has the habit of resell that single SNES game very overpriced as a standalone title..

    I hope not the bad localization script form the GBA version. Some translated was incorrected so I hope they have an accurate translate but I doubt they will bring this to SNES, thought.

    You could buy a SNES VC title through the eShop.
    OR you could download Snes9x and some ROMs and have the same experience for free.
    Unless you're speedrunning in which case having the original cartridge and console or an official emulator is a necessity.
