Retro-fit your Nintendo NES with wireless PS4 and Wiimote controllers

A new gaming accessory will allow you to use your old school Nintendo NES console without sitting a couple of feet away from the television.

The $20 Retro Receiver is a Bluetooth-based adapter for the iconic system which enables the use of wireless games controllers.

The peripheral is made by Analogue NT and 8bitDo, the maker of a number of retro-styled controllers.

While the Retro Receiver is designed to be used with 8bitDo’s own Bluetooth controllers, it’ll also play nice with the PS3, PS4, Wiimote and Wii U Pro controller.

Given many Nintendo loyalists will have at least one Wiimote lying around the place, so this offers a great solution if the original pads are failing the test of time.

The Retro Receiver can be purchased now.
