Thank Mario – the SNES Classic controller cables are longer than NES Classic’s

What’s more, you’ll get two SNES Classic controllers with your purchase.

SNES Classic

Whatever your thoughts on the NES Classic (assuming you could find one), it had one major drawback – its default controller cables were only three feet long, forcing players to sit uncomfortably close to their modern TVs. Thankfully, Nintendo is correcting this problem with the SNES Classic by including five foot cables, not to mention two controllers per package.

Now five feet can still feel cumbersome after the wireless comfort most players are used to these days, but it should be a major improvement from the original. If that still bothers you, third-party controllers should make up the difference. Now it’s just a question of whether you’ll be able to purchase the system.

Happy hunting!
