The NES Classic Edition video game console was the hottest item of the holiday season this past Christmas, and it’s still next to impossible to find one in stores (though you can get one on Amazon right now if you’re willing to pay a premium). If you did manage to score yourself one of these hot consoles, you’ll agree that the retro aspect of it is obviously its biggest selling point. Having a throwback console is great, but there are still some things that need to be modernized if you really want to enjoy your NES. Below, you’ll find two different wireless controllers that will make playing the NES Classic Editions so much better.
