Key points

Requires adapter to connect to PC.
Lacks native XInput support, requiring the use of a XInput wrapper (see XInput wrappers) for games that do not support DirectInput or the controller natively.

Controller variations

In 2017 Nintendo released replica of the original SNES Controller - SNES Classic Controller which is designed for use with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System - Super NES Classic Edition. It can also be plugged into a Wii Remote controller, so it's possible to use it with Virtual Console SNES games on Wii or Wii U console and works with their adapters.
Controller's cord is longer than NES Classic Controller - 1.5 m (5-foot).


Mayflash SNES Controller Adapter

Connects SNES or NES controller.
Directly compatible with PC. No driver needed, just plug and play.
Two players can play simultaneously.
Compatible with PS3 console.

USB Super RetroPort

Works with Super Famicom controllers and original controllers (original, third party, Super Advantage, etc)
Does not work with peripherals: SuperScope, MultiTap, etc.
No drivers to install or update.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.
