NES Classic Edition Gets Wireless Controller

In his review of the NES Classic Edition, our own Peter Brown said that the cables on the retro re-released console’s controllers were “unreasonably short.” Well, Nyko has a solution in its new Miniboss controller, a wireless clone of the NES gamepad.

Available for USD$19.99, the Nyko Miniboss controller uses “SPACE-AGE Cordless Technology” to allow you to move 30 feet away from your tiny new retro console, instead of the 31 inches the pack-in controllers provide.

A wireless dongle is simply attached to the controller port on the front of the NES Classic Edition, and the controller itself looks like it can be charged via a micro-USB port. We’ll know for sure once the controller hits stores on November 11.

The NES Classic Edition comes with 30 games built-in, and will be available to purchase from November 11.
