The NES Classic Mini comes out this week, and appears to be getting just as much third-party accessory support as as full-blown Nintendo console.
Retro gaming accessory brand My Arcade has the Gamepad Classic, Gamepad Pro and Gamepad Retro on offer, as well as a combo kit and extender cable.
Here are the full details:
+ Gamepad Classic (MSRP: $14.99): Features wireless connectivity from up to 30′ and play time of over 75 hours. The Gamepad Classic retains the same iconic 2-button layout as the original NES controller, combined with a new, ergonomic design.
+ Gamepad Pro (MSRP: $19.99): Featuring both wireless connectivity from up to 30′ and play time of over 75 hours; the Gamepad Pro will allow gamers to revisit their favorite NES or SNES games with 4 face and shoulder buttons.
+ Gamepad Combo Kit (MSRP: $24.99): Everything you and your friends need to play your NES Classic Edition in comfort. Includes a 10′ extender cable to extend the length of the controller included with the console and the Gamepad Classic wireless controller for multiplayer games.
+ Gamepad Retro (MSRP: $12.99): Designed for gamers seeking the classic styling and nostalgia of retro controllers, but with improved ergonomics and a longer range. This controller includes a 10′ cable for comfortable play from longer distances.
+ Extender Cable (MSRP: $9.99): A 10′ extension cable to make playing from the couch possible on the NES Classic Edition. The Extender Cable is also compatible with the Wii and Wii U.
All of My Arcade's controllers and accessories are currently available for pre-order on Amazon in North America.
Meanwhile, Hyperkin is releasing an adapter which allows you to use your original NES pads on the NES Classic Mini, as well as an extension cable similar to the one sold by My Arcade. Pre-orders are open now.
Will you be picked up any of these, or do you prefer to go official with this kind of thing?
