Nintendo is just SNES-ing around.

During Wednesday's Nintendo Direct, the Japanese video game giant unveiled plans for its Super Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo Switch Online, a mouthful of a title for a slate of 20 classic games from the 1990 console that are on their way to the Switch.

Set to bow Thursday through Nintendo Online, iconic titles such as Super Mario World, Super Metroid and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will be available on Nintendo's subscription service, Nintendo Switch Online. 

To further stoke the embers of nostalgia, Nintendo also revealed a Switch exclusive wireless SNES controller. Sporting the same classic purple and gray aesthetic of the original control stick, the new controller will utilize tech currently available in the Switch's Joy-Cons.
