Ahhh the NES. The classic gaming console which serves as a “gateway drug” of sorts into the world of gaming for a whole generation of folks in their mid-20s to late-30s. While those of us who still consider ourselves “retro gamers” still have a great amount of affection for Nintendo’s first console, there is one thing about it that makes it difficult to integrate into our living rooms on a permanent basis: all those cables.


So far, cable management on the NES has been a mess. There’s simply no way around the fact that the controllers aren’t wireless — but what if you could use a wireless controller with an NES? Sound like crazy talk? It’s not. Meet the Retro Received by 8Bitdo x Analogue. This simple adapter is compatible with all consoles with an NES-style controller port and will allow you to use a PS3, PS4, Wii Mote or Wii U Pro controller with your NES console. That’s right, you’ll be able to blast on through your favorite nostalgia-infused 8-bit game without ever having to worry about how far you are from your TV or cable management again! Hooray for freedom!
