My Arcade has revealed a new wireless controller, built specifically for the SNES Classic Edition. It’s called the Super Gamepad, and it’s available now through Amazon and the My Arcade website for $24.99.
“The Super Gamepad is the best of both worlds – it features the nostalgic look and feel of the classic controller retro fans love while also updating it for the modern world with wireless functionality and improved ergonomics,” said Crystal Dugan, My Arcade’s Marketing Manager. “We’ve even added an intuitive TURBO feature that is easy to program during play, and a convenient HOME button feature that allows you to switch games and access the main menu directly from your controller. Now you can enjoy the games you loved without the wires.”
The Super Gamepad seemingly fixes two of the SNES Classic Edition’s biggest problems: wire length on the included controllers, and having to physically hit the reset button on the console to switch games. It’s designed with the look and aesthetic of the original SNES controller, but with a more ergonomic design.
As a bonus, the Super Gamepad is also compatible with the NES Classic Edition, as well as Virtual Console titles on the Nintendo Wii and Wii U. It features 75 hours of battery life on two AAA batteries. The wireless function works up to 25 feet away.
My Arcade is gaming accessories manufacturer that specializes in retro gaming. They previously developed a similar wireless controller for the NES Classic Edition.
