Ordering

Unlike most of our items, which ship from Canada, this item is built, sold and shipped from Japan.

Due to the Coronavirus, Air mail from Japan to many countries, including to United States, is temporarily suspended. If you are located in one of the affected countries, ordering may not be possible unless you accept to use surface (boat) shipping which takes over 2 months. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience, this situation is certainly not something we expected... We hope things return to normal soon...

FAQ

Q: What is the difference between the old version (ADAP-CLASSIC2SNES) and this new version (ADAP-CLX-TO-SNES-V2) ?
A: The form factor has changed (the classic controller connector is now built into the adapter casing) and the firmware has been upgraded to 2.0.0.

Q: How can I tell which firmware version I have?
A: If the product number written on the adapter is ADAP-CLX-TO-SNES-V2, you have firmware 2.0.0 or newer. Otherwise if the cable is black, you have firmware 1.0.2 or newer which supports 8BitDo wireless receivers, otherwise you have an older version.

Q: What are the different firmware versions and their differences?
A: There are two in existence. Firmware 1.0.0 is the original and firmware version 1.0.2 adds support for 8BitDo receivers. Firmware 2.0.0 fixes some problems with 8BitDo receivers.

Q: How can I update the firmware?
A: We are sorry, but the firmware is not currently upgradeable.

Q: What is the color of the cable?
A: The cable is now black. Pictures showing a white cable are old, sorry for the confusion.
