Were you looking at our amazing preview blog of the NES Classic Edition and thinking to yourself… “Hey… I’ve got some 31-year old controllers that I’d REALLY love to use again”? Good news! Accessory company “Hyperkin” will be releasing a 6-inch, $10 adapter later this month that’ll allow you to do just that.
The adapter will also let you connect your NES controllers to your Wii U or Wii for use with the Virtual Console, which is pretty dope. The adapter works with every other controller/accessory that went through the controller port for the original NES, and it looks like this:
To absolutely nobody’s surprise, there’s also going to be an extension cord (for $8), which’ll grant you 6 extra feet to your controller. Haha, remember having to worry about wires, guys? It’s part of the fun! Both accessories are currently slated to ship on 11/28, just a little while after the NES Classic’s release date this week. You can pre-order your NES Classic Edition adapters at Hyperkin‘s official website.
