As part of the direct (04.09.2019, sorry I'm from Europe) the SNES app for Switch online as well as the corresponding SNES controllers have been announced. On Nintendo's website it's stated the SNES controllers require the 9.0 system update:

Please note:
- Each package contains one Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controller and one USB cable.
- Orders are limited to four controllers per Nintendo Account.


A system update (9.0 NUP) is required in order to use Super Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers with your Nintendo Switch console.

Do we have any information and/or hints when it will launch and what other features might come?

Is the NES emulator built into the switch OS or do each game come with it like the old wii VC?

They will never add:

folders
themes
eShop music

better accept this reality. It should have become obvious by now that this is how they want their Switch menu to be. Folders have a tiny chance.

It seems genuinely absurd that they haven’t added themes (yet), given that it would make them easy money!

Plenty of folks would happily pay €2/$2/£2 for similar themes that were available on the 3DS.

I personally do not mind the lack of folders, as I only currently have ten or eleven games for my Switch however, for those who have much more games than I do, I would imagine it looks like a mess...

An option to sort games alphabetically surely cannot be too troublesome to implement?

only when the switch port of XCX is announced.
XenobladeX Definitive Edition.
I want that timeline to be true.
And I also want it to end the direct its shown at.
I want lots of things lol.

Anyway, really, really happy both for people who didn't play and were waiting for the first to come in glorious HD.
Since I loved it it would be a day 1 for sure, but with stuff added, it's icing.

They're reworking the transfer process for the switch lite release right? That'll be included.

With the exception of Kirby, most of the avatars have been limited to Nintendo EPD franchises. Unless that somehow changes, I wouldn't get your hopes up for anything from Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, or Pokémon.
Oh, didn't notice.. that explains why they barely update the list

This is the first time I've been excited for avatars. Fire Emblem avatars would be great. I would really only expecting the three lords, F/M Byleth, and Rhea... but I would be very pleased if they added every student. Yeah, I'm gonna be very disappointed huh.

Folders and themes would also be great, but we're going to keep waiting.

This is perhaps going to sound a little absurd, but I'm glad the controller comes with a USB cable. I feared it wouldn't, and I think I saw in the Direct that the socket was a Type-C; I'm not drowning in those cables!

Switch firmware updates are the LEAST exciting firmware updates on any device ever

Stability and new 2 new icons are what we can expect

They're adding a SNES controller image for the connection screen and you'll all like it

honestly i didn't really need folders, but i've sold some of my physical games and i would like it if i could hide their icons or put them in a folder, also would be nice to have a folder for finished games.

Pretty sure you can just delete them from the options menu on the home screen with the icon selected.
