SNES Classic Edition will be Getting a ‘Super Gamepad’ Accessory

For the two of you who have managed to secure a SNES Classic Edition pre-order (just kidding), you might be happy to know that there will also be a third-party controller accessory that’s also on the way.

Created by My Arcade, the Super Gamepad is a SNES-styled wireless controller. It sports the exact same button layout but has the inclusion of handlebars and a ‘TURBO button. It also sports a HOME button which is compatible with the Wii U and Wii Virtual Console titles on select games. In addition to the SNES Classic Edition, Wii U and Wii, the Super Gamepad can also be used with the NES Classic Edition which launched last year.

No pricing information or release date has been given yet, but the controller does seem pretty interesting. Would you pick one up?
