X2Wii: NES or SNES controller to Gamecube/Wii circuit

A small circuit for converting NES or SNES controllers to Gamecube/Wii.

$19.54 CAD
(approx. $14.65 USD )

Product Description:
Being able to play NES and SNES games on the Wii's Virtual Console is great (Thanks Nintendo!), but it's much more fun to do it with the original controllers. (And some games are much more playable like this).

This circuit makes it possible to use a NES or SNES controller on your Wii or Gamecube. No microcontroller programming or surface mount component soldering required. All you need to do is to solder the gamecube and nes/snes/n64 controller wires.

The circuit is small enough to fit inside an heat shrink tubing or pvc pipe. It's even possible to fit the circuit directly inside an original controller!
