Peripheral maker 8bitdo and retro revivalist Analogue Interactive recently joined forces to create a wireless adapter for the NES which allows players to use Bluetooth controllers on their vintage hardware. The pair have combined their efforts once again, but this time it's Nintendo's 16-bit console which is getting the cable-free treatment.

The SNES Retro Receiver works with pretty much any Bluetooth controller you could mention - including 8bitdo's own NES30, SNES30 and FC30 Pro pads - and is compatible with the Super Famicom and Super SNES (both PAL and US).

You can pre-order the adapter from Play-Asia.
