N30

Remember the Super Nintendo mouse? It was originally designed for the 1992 release Mario Paint and was eventually made compatible with multiple other games on the system. The system's predecessor – the NES – didn't ever receive an official accessory like this, but now, after 34 years, there's at least a mouse inspired by the classic system.

Introducing the 8BitDo N30 – a 2.4GHz wireless computer mouse for Windows and Mac that looks like a Nintendo Entertainment System controller and is available right now for US$24.99. The rubber pad A and B buttons act as the main mouse buttons, a 3D touch panel in between makes scrolling a breeze, and the D-Pad on the side helps with navigation.

If this design looks familiar, that's most likely because you've seen the original mock-ups that have been doing the rounds online for a long time now. 8BitDo decided to collaborate with the Swedish industrial designer Daniel Jansson this year, after seeing the "true value" in his original concept to turn it into a real product.

The mouse requires a single AA battery and can run on this for 100-120 hours, according to the 8BitDo website. Do you think you would be interested in using this mouse? Tell us below.
