Is there any place you can buy the SNES Classic controllers without buying the console itself? I tried it at a friends house and those pads are lovely, but I have no desire for the box.
In Japan’s Club Nintendo, one of the giveaways were SFC controllers that can be used as classic controllers when hooked up to a wii remote. You can still grab them on eBay:
They used to be much pricer (around 80 bucks) but the price has come down since the SNES classic released. I haven’t used it personally, but I’d be shocked if it weren’t of equal or better quality to what is being sold with the SNES Classic.
I miss Club Nintendo so much.
