Got one from Target this morning. I wish getting a second controller was easier. They’re so expensive on amazon.

Edit: NM. I guess SNES controllers and wii classic controller work too.

I didn't know the SNES controllers worked. I even have the extension cables for those.

Thanks for the tip!

Yeah I was looking at the prices a few months ago and saw that since the connections are the same it's feasible.

From the horse's mouth

Quote:
The Wii Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro, the Wired Fight Pad, and the Battle Pad can be used with the NES Classic Edition as a second controller for 2-player games only.

It is hard to imagine playing an NES game with anything other than that rectangular masterpiece though.

I'm not sure how much I will play games on this, but it is nice to have everything in a fun little package. The price is right too.

For the NES Classic. I feel like I've already gotten my money's worth for the SNES Classic since I never owned an SNES and hadn't played many of the games on it.

Same. My wife and I will probably play 2P Dr Mario more than anything else.

Mario 2 will be my first game I play. What a weird gem of a game.
