Super Nintendo now has a wireless controller adapter

Play SNES games with a DualShock 4.

Earlier this year retro peripheral companies Analogue and 8Bitdo joined forces to create a wireless receiver for the original NES, allowing players to enjoy their classic games on native hardware without those clunky cords getting in the way.


Now the peripheral makers have offered the same treatment to the SNES. This Retro Receiver uses a bluetooth connection, offering wireless controller support for the Super Nintendo and Super Famicom.

8Bitdo makes a wireless SNES Gamepad, but you can also pair more modern hardware with the classic console as well, should you wish. The Retro Receiver is compatible with DualShock 3 and 4s, the Wiimote, a Wii U Pro Controller, and all 8Bitdo controllers and arcade sticks.

The new SNES accessory allows for up to four-player wireless multiplayer.

You can snag the SNES Retro Receiver on PlayAsia for $24.99 (about £19). The 8Bitdo wireless SNES gamepad is $31.99 (about £24.35).
