There is a brand new wireless controller that owners of the Classic NES and Classic SNES systems can now purchase to play retro games while maintaining a modern gaming set up. My Arcade's Super Gamepad will allow you to revisit the NES and SNES classics with the functionality of today's gaming consoles, including TURBO capabilities to deliver improved performance while enhancing the overall gameplay experience.
Additionally, the controller includes a Home button to quickly bring you back to the game launch menu without having to physically press the reset button on the console. Just like the PS and Xbox home (middle) buttons of today. The controller is also compatible with the classic Virtual Console titles on Wii and Wii U, given they are supported games.
"The Super Gamepad is the best of both worlds - it features the nostalgic look and feel of the classic controller retro fans love while also updating it for the modern world with wireless functionality and improved ergonomics," said Crystal Dugan, My Arcade's Marketing Manager
It's crazy how classic this modern styled controller looks. It really shows that it have the comfort that we have become accustomed to with today's console controllers. The design seems like it will fit snugly in the palms of most gamers, but you never really know until you actually have one in front of you when it comes to new accessories.
You can get your own wireless Super Gamepad for as low as $24.99, which is a lower price than most controllers on any other console. While I can't think of any games that I could use the Turbo button for, I would love to be playing Mario and Donkey Kong games with a more comfortable controller. The classic NES and SNES controllers just weren't comfortable, no matter how you find yourself holding it. So, do you think this is a worthy deal? Will you be ordering one?
