If like me you play a few virtual console games on the Nintendo Wii console, then wildly claim you’re rubbish at Super Mario World because your classic control pad just isn’t the same as the real thing, then fear not!
Small manufacturer Komodo have announced a three way adapter for the wii that allows the connection of original Nintendo 64, Super Nintendo and NES pads and even claims compatibility with third party ‘cheapo’ pads.
Pricing for the USA is currently estimated around $20 which is a not bad, considering a lot of Nintendo fans have the dusty old control pads stashed away already. Komodo are expected to give more info on the product at this years E3 convention in June.
Another similar alternative is to search eBay or import stores for Nintendo’s own offering of a ‘Classic Controller SNES Pad’ but these don’t come cheap (around £45) as they were a limited offer for Nintendo points in Japan only.
