The NES Classic Edition controller cable is too short for comfort. You can fix that!
If you were one of the lucky few to get your hands on the NES Classic Edition, then you’ve probably also realized that you have to sit right in front of your 77-inch TV in order to play Metroid because the controller cord is only 2.5 feet long. Talk about immersive game play!
Our parents told us that it’ll ruin our eyes if we sit too close to the TV, though. So, to make them happy, you can get a wireless Bluetooth controller for your NES Classic Edition, so you can play all those pixelated picks from anywhere in the room. Your parents and your eyes will thank you.
The 8Bitdo NES30 Classic Edition Set with Bluetooth Retro Receiver is a replica of the classic Nintendo game pad. It comes with a Bluetooth dongle that is compatible with the console’s controller port. Connect the receiver and then turn on your NES CE. Press Down and Select on the game pad to enable it.
The NES30 is not officially licensed by Nintendo, but the company is known for its retro replica controllers. This particular game pad has been on the market for a while, but has been updated with a compatible receiver for the NES CE.
The NES30 for the Classic Edition won’t be available until December 16, but you can preorder it now on Amazon for $39.99. If this unit is even one-fifth as popular as the NES Classic Edition itself, you’d better reserve yours now, or you might have to wait months before you have a chance to get one again. That, or pay hundreds of dollars on the resell market.
