If you’re one of those lucky people who were able to get their hands on the NES Classic Edition then you might have faced a problem with this mini-console. The wired controllers that it comes with are too short so it’s not that comfortable playing games in the living room. 8bitdo has come out with a new Retro Receiver which will enable you to play NES Classic wirelessly.
Nintendo announced the NES Classic Edition a couple of months ago. It’s a mini version of the original NES and comes with a handful of games pre-installed.
The console was immediately sold out when it first went on sale and even though Nintendo has promised to provide additional inventory throughout the holiday season, it’s pretty hard to find one in stock.
8bitdo’s new NES30 Classic Edition Set makes life easier for those who already have this mini-console. The Retro Receiver enables players to use wireless controllers with the mini-console, it’s compatible with the DualShock 4, DualShock 3, Wii remote, Wii U Pro controller, and all wireless controllers made by 8bitdo.
The set also includes a wireless replica NES controller that’s called the NES30. It can be used to play games wirelessly on iOS, Android, PC, and Mac as well as the NES Classic. both the adaptor and controller can be pre-ordered right now from Amazon. The set costs $39.99 and will start shipping December 16th.
