The Super NES Classic Controller Cord Will Be Longer Than The NES Classic’s

When the NES Classic Edition hit shelves, the cord for the controller was a little too short for many. With the launch of the newly announced Super NES Classic Edition (SNES Mini if you’re in Europe), you’ll be happy to know that the cord for its controller is going to be a bit longer  – according to Nintendo.

A Nintendo representative today confirmed to IGN that the Super NES Classic’s controller cord is approximately five feet long, “which is about 2 ft. longer than the cord on the NES Classic Controller.”

No more having to sit a bit too up close and personal with your TV then.

    That honestly doesn’t sound any better.

    1. If you have your TV mounted across the room, it’s not going to help at all. Have to pick up extensions. I’m not quite sure how people are hooking this or the NES version up. ?? I’d want wireless controllers, and by that time, I mayaswell play the games on my WiiU or 3DS or Wii VC. Looks really cool though!

      1. I have the NES Classic hooked up to my PC Monitor. It sits in one of the desk drawers. I just pull the drawer out when I want to play. Gonna do the same thing if I can get the SNES Classic.

        1. Ah! I’ve always wondered! seems that would be a great solution for PC users, nice.

          1. Sometimes it feels like being a Nintendo fan involves the company throwing out problems for us to solve. Simply figuring out how to ise their products can be a game in and of itself. Lol.

              1. Lol that wasn’t exactly meant to be positive. It was more of a neutral observation. I like solving problems, but sometimes they’re annoying as all hell.

                1. I am also a problem solver! If you want to assassinate me, throw me into a circular, no solution loop and I’ll self destruct. xD

                  But before you try, I warn that I’m quite adept at my trade!

  2. I’m sure that’s because the controller ports are in the back. As you can see in the pictures, the ports on the front are just decorative, since the socket will be the same as the one on the Wii/NES Classic.
