Wireless controller for NES Classic Edition unveiled
LOS ANGELES – November 3, 2016 – Inventive console accessories manufacturer Nyko today unveiled Miniboss, a wireless controller for the highly anticipated NES Classic Edition game console. Built to complement the visual look and design of the console, Miniboss offers complete wireless freedom of up to 30 feet. Nyko will also release Extend Link, a six foot extension cable for the wired Nintendo NES Classic controller that triples its reach. Both Miniboss (MSRP $19.99) and Extend Link (MSRP $9.99) are available for pre-order at Nyko.com and GameStop.com, and will be available later this month at Amazon.com and in GameStop stores.

“The original NES is a legendary console that so many of us have fond memories of, and we’ve set out to create an accessory that offers what we at Nyko do best – augment the gaming experience with creative design while respecting the charm of the hardware it complements,” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “We envision gamers playing the amazing lineup of NES Classic Edition titles on their massive flatscreens at home, which require a little more distance from the screen than the old tube TVs. The Miniboss will allow us to play from the comfort of our couch without having to pull the console out to our coffee table.”
