Datel Release Retro Controllers for Virtual Console

The Classic Controller is a lovely one-for-all controller for playing Virtual Console games, but if you’re like me you probably long for a small square edged controller to enjoy NES goodness. Seemingly reading my mind, Datel are releasing some retro style controllers for the Wii. We’d assume these will work on any VC games that support the Wiimote as a controller, but would be best suited for NES, Master System and TG-16 gaming.

You can check out the 4 different colour options at Amazon Japan. There are two Famicom styles in red and gold and also two more contemporary Wii styles in white. They will retail at slightly less than a classic controller at 1,659 Yen which is around $15 USD / €10 / £8.

There is no news on these being sold outside of Japan so importing might be the only option. They will be available from 10th September. If we see these pop up on Play-Asia we’ll let you guys know, otherwise Amazon looks like the place to go!
