Nyko has announced a new wireless controller for the SNES Classic. Priced at $19.99, the Super MiniBoss wireless controller is now open for pre-order at Gamestop and Amazon while shipping is expected to begin starting October 4.
The controller’s design matches the retro look and feel of the SNES Classic console. It’s wireless, which means players can enjoy cord-free gaming. According to Nyko, the controller has a wireless range of 20-feet.
It also features turbo buttons for faster button inputs which should come in real handy in fast-paced shooting games. It also comes with a dedicated power button which is located on top of the controller that acts as a Home button.
Elsewhere, the Nyko MiniBoss wireless controller gets powered by a rechargeable battery which is charged via a microUSB port.
“Our original Miniboss wireless controller for the NES Classic allowed gamers to break free from the limitations of a wired controller and play from the comfort of their couches, and we wanted to extend this experience to the new SNES Classic Edition. Super Miniboss provides a simple, wireless alternative that doubles the gameplay range of the original corded controller and complements the style of the updated console.” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
The SNES Classic will be released on Friday, September 29 for $80. That said, it’ll be an uphill task to successfully order one for yourself online given the raging popularity of classic Nintendo consoles. On September 29, the SNES Classic will be available on Amazon, GameStop, Walmart, BestBuy, Target, ToysRUs, Play-Asia, and B&H Photo.
The SNES Classic features many games that fans already know of, as well as a few titles that they might’ve missed. These include first and third party titles such as Final Fantasy III, Kirby Super Star, Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Mario Kart, and more.
