A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Finally! Super Nintendo games are coming to Nintendo Switch via its online subscription service. The first 20 will be available tomorrow, September 5.

Those initial games include classics like Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Just like with NES games on Switch, you can use a rewind feature on these digital versions.

Nintendo is also releasing a $30 SNES controller that you can use with your Switch.
