PC Gamers Win When Nintendo Classic Controller Support Comes to Steam

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

Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can purchase wireless retro controllers from the Nintendo Store. Until now, they could only be used on the Nintendo Switch because they were tailor-made for use with the subscription service’s various retro libraries.

However, in the last Steam client update notes (opens in new tab), Valve confirms that “Support for classic Nintendo Online controllers” has been added. The patch note with weird words didn’t stay that way for long. A spokesperson for Valve confirmed On the edge (opens in new tab) that all these pads – NES, SNES, N64 and Sega Genesis / Mega Drive – are supported.
