ThinkGeek Releases SNES-Style Wii Classic Controller

on May 21, 2012 8:30 PM

For those of us that may have cried a bit when we learned that the SNES classic controller for the Wii would be exclusive to Japanese club Nintendo members, ThinkGeek has our back. The Classic Super Famicom Controller sells for a modest $20, and offers you a nostalgia trip through your childhood for the price.

Compatible with any game that uses the classic controller (and has no need for the analog sticks), this one might go into novelty column, but novelty usually sells for a lot more these days. With the WiiU just around the corner, people may shy away from picking up peripherals for the Wii. However, the WiiU will be using Wii Remotes as well, so a classic controller may not be a bad idea to have.
