If you regularly shop for gaming accessories, then chances are you’ve run into a Nyko product from time-to-time. This company makes all sorts of accessories for each platform, from controllers to charging stations, cooling pads, battery packs and much more.
For those of you who choose to pick up an NES Classic Edition (NES Mini), then you should know that Nintendo decided to stick to the system’s retro roots and included wired controllers. It’s been quite a while since wired controllers were the standard, and the majority of us have gotten used to the convenience of wireless controllers (except folks who are involved in eSports). If you want to enjoy the remastered goodness of the NES Mini’s selection from the comfort of your couch, then you should definitely consider picking up Nyko’s new wireless controller made specifically for the system.
Meet the ‘Miniboss’. That’s a pretty interesting name for a controller, but hey, it still fits the gaming theme.
The Nyko Miniboss is laid out almost exactly the same way as the NES controller, except it’s totally wireless. Nyko came up with a pretty (read: ‘totally radical!’) description for the Miniboss:
Conquer any game and get the Hi-Score with Miniboss for NES Classic Edition. Miniboss features SPACE-AGE Cordless Technology allowing cord-free play from up to 30 feet away. Cords are so yesterday and cordless is the future! Sit back in comfort to enjoy the classics! No need to be close to the television. Two offset ergonomic face buttons gives you the precision needed to make those jumps, avoid beams and for mass button mashing action. Two is all you need! The rad 4-way directional pad is perfect for up, down, right and occasional left movement.
Show the BOSS who’s BOSS with Miniboss!
- Precise button mashing action with complete wireless freedom
- Play cord-free up to 30 feet away
- 2 offset ergonomic face buttons – Two is all you need!
- 4-way directional pad for perfect up, down, right and occasional left movement
Yup, they sure captured the 90s flare! If you’re interested in the Miniboss, then you’d be happy to know that it will only cost you $20 to purchase and launches on November 11th.
If you don’t want the extra expense, then just grab an old Wii Remote and plug the standard NES Classic Edition controller into it. It uses the same input jack as the Nunchuk and Classic Controller, which will give you a pseudo-wireless experience.
