Retro Fighters Next Gen NES Controller will revolutionize game-play on your favorite Nintendo games

Modern gamers may wonder why anyone would want analog sticks to play old 8-bit games. I think anyone who loves retro gaming as well as moden games had held a PlayStation controller and wondered why such a controller isn't available for classic consoles... like the NES. Retro Fighters have resolved this injustice with their Next Gen NES Controller!

With a modern design and button layout, the multitude of options on the Retro Fighters Next Gen NES Controller is a welcome addition to our retro gaming collection. Outfitted with analog sticks, triggers, and shoulder buttons, you'll find new options and comfort when playing all your favorite games on the NES or ROMS on your computer.

The Next Gen NES Controller is all about options. As we used it with more and more games, it became evident how each game benefited from different control schemes. Playing Contra with analog sticks feels great. At the same time, the D-pad offeres excellent accuracy when precise jumps in a platformer are necessary. Driving games take on a new context when I steer with an analog stick and accelerate with a trigger button.

The beauty of all the afforded options is YOU can choose what feels best for you. In simple terms, all the controls on the left activate the "B" button and the right-hand controls activate the traditional "A" button. Even depressing the analog sticks will activate the A or B butons. All of these options are available on-the-fly. There is no configuration - simply switch from triggers to shoulder buttons or D-pad to analog sticks and see how it feels. You may prefer "steering" with the left analog as opposed to the right-hand one. Switch them up. Try both.

I"ve never used a controller that offers so many options and felt great over long gaming sessions. It's an amazing controller!

I have a moderate collection of NES cartridges, but I'll occasionally fire up my computer to play NES games. Retro Fighters Next Gen NES Controller has you covered there as well (on MAc and PC) with it's 6-foot Y-cable. The cable splits at the end giving you both an NES connection and USB. Simply plug it into either your NES (or 3rd party clone console) or computer and your ready to play!

This fantastic NES controller is available on Amazon and will continue to be added to other nationwide retailers. Keep an eye on Retro Fighters - I look forward to more products from this company.
