My Arcade announce ‘Super Gamepad’ for SNES Mini

by Phil Wheat

My Arcade’s Super Gamepad for the Super NES Classic Edition allows gamers to revisit the SNES classics with the functionality of today’s gaming consoles, including wireless functionality for total convenience and TURBO capabilities to deliver improved performance while enhancing the overall gameplay experience. Additionally, the controller includes a HOME button to jump to the game launch menu without having to physically press the reset button on the console. The controller is also compatible with the NES Classic Edition and classic Virtual Console titles on Wii/Wii U (with supported games).

Said Crystal Dugan, My Arcade’s Marketing Manager:

The Super Gamepad is the best of both worlds – it features the nostalgic look and feel of the classic controller retro fans love while also updating it for the modern world with wireless functionality and improved ergonomics. We’ve even added an intuitive TURBO feature that is easy to program during play, and a convenient HOME button feature that allows you to switch games and access the main menu directly from your controller. Now you can enjoy the games you loved without the wires.

The highly-anticipated wireless solution for the Super NES Classic eEition is now available on Amazon and the My Arcade website. European territories and Japan will receive an alternate version of the Super Gamepad made to compliment the classic Super Famicom color scheme.


  • Features HOME button for easy access to game selection menu directly from your controller!
  • Intuitive TURBO feature can be assigned easily to any of the action buttons.
  • Wireless controller allows for comfortable play.
  • Over 75 hours of playtime on 2 AAA batteries (not included).
  • Ergonomically designed for better grip and control and allows for play from up to 25 feet away without lag or disconnection.

The European release of the Super Gamepad will arrive early 2018. Check out pics of both Super Gamepad editions below:
