Nintendo making a SNES-style controller for Switch, FCC filing says

It looks as though Nintendo may be making a Super Nintendo-style wireless controller for its Switch console.

The rumours have come from a recent filing with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

The FCC filing shows an image of the back of the wireless device. The silhouette looks like a SNES controller, as well as the model number and FCC ID including the letters HAC, which is used in Nintendo’s model numbers for Switch, its hardware and accessories.
