In case you hadn’t noticed, Nintendo is in the midst of a once-in-a-lifetime company Renaissance. And it’s all thanks to a little app called Pokémon Go. The resurgence has proven that the demand for nostalgia-based gaming is far from absent, in fact quite the opposite. Analogue knows this, which is why it has just unveiled a slick, 21st-century update to a Nintendo classic. The company has launched a new “Retro Receiver” compatible for the good ol’ Super Nintendo gaming system.
This of course comes hot on the heels of a similar addition to the classic NES system, not to mention an ultra-luxury version wrought in solid 24-karat gold. After finding success with both of these iterations, it only seemed right to turn its attention toward the SNES operating systems.
Created together with 8bitdo, the SNES “Retro Receiver” employs Bluetooth technology that plugs right into the original SNES. Not only does its wireless function allow you to recline as far away from the television as possible, but it is also compatible with all modern video game systems, from the PlayStation to the Wii.
The SNES Retro Receiver is available now on Analogue’s online store.
