As for the NES Classic accessories, Snakebyte is coming out with a power adapter. The system is normally powered by USB, but you may not always have access to that. The Snakebyte adapter lets you plug the system into any standard power outlet.

Snakebyte is also releasing an extension cable for the NES Classic's gamepad cable, which many remarked was too short. Snakebyte's extender adds 9.8 feet, according to a press release.

"Nintendo has a tradition of honoring the past while forging a bold future, and with the release of the NES Classic Edition as well as the forthcoming Switch, we believe that gamers everywhere will respond positively to the new hardware Nintendo are introducing," Snakebyte CEO Nick Repenning said.

"We expect our range of Switch accessories to be high quality and thoughtfully designed, ideal for a day one purchase alongside new console sales. We believe that the new products announced today will allow us to continue growing market share in our gaming hardware business and look forward to sharing further details soon."

Pricing was not announced for any of Snakebyte's Switch and NES Classic accessories.
