Product Description: If you want to play games on your NES console but have a strong preference for SNES controllers, or own many cool but snes-only arcade sticks you'd like to use, this adapter is exactly what you need.
Supports SNES controllers. (Official Nintendo and most 3rd party)
Length: Approximately 5ft.
SNES B: NES A
SNES Y: NES B
SNES D-Pad: NES D-Pad
SNES Start/Select: NES Start/Select
Latency: None! Zero latency is actually possible for this adapter since it is a simple "wiring only" adapter.

Orders are normally prepared and shipped within 5 business days. unless otherwise noted.
time varies according to the country of destination, but between 4 and 10 business days are typical.

IMPORTANT: This is not a complete list. If your controller or game does not appear here, it simply
means that we did not get the chance (or the idea) to test it, or that no one let us know that it works.
Q: Can I get a different mapping? A: Unfortunately different mappings are not possible on this adapter since it is a simple wire-to-wire design without a micro-controller. This not very flexible, but it provides "speed of light" latency (i.e. zero).
Q: But if it's just wiring, can't you just swap wires to remap buttons? A: No. NES and SNES controllers use a serial protocol. i.e. Button states (bits) are sent by the controller in a specific (and fixed) sequence over a single wire. We would need to introduce a micro-controller in the middle to reorder the bits, and this would mean a completely different design. There are not plans to make one currently.
 Ignoring of course the speed of electricity in the extra 5ft of cable. Assuming a velocity factor of 42% the speed of light, this means a latency of about 24ns (0.0000000240 second). Of course it does not matter at all.
