There are no doubts regarding the usefulness of the Classic controller since it is basically a Playstation controller. But what about the much simple Nunchuk controller? It turns out to be a very good choice for simple games such as Sega Master System and of course NES games. Being able to play with one hand is wonderful!

  • Supports the Wii classic controller. By default, the analogic L slider is disabled. Hold HOME for 3 seconds to toggle between enabled/disabled. (Required to complete button assignment in many games)
  • Supports the NES and SNES Classic edition controllers.
  • Supports the Nunchuk, official version and clones (wireless or wired), at its full resolution (8 bit for the XY joystick and 10 bit or the accelerometers)
  • Partial support for the Wii motion plus. Connecting a peripheral to the Wii motion plus is NOT supported. Yaw, Roll and Pitch speeds scaled down to fit in the 10 bit USB report which severely limits precision. (Not really for games but maybe interesting for programmers)
  • USB HID Compatible. No drivers required on most systems.
  • Works natively on Win7/8 32&64 bit, Linux and many others.
  • The connected peripheral can be changed on the fly.
  • On-board voltage regulator for providing 3.3v to the controller.
  • Small PCB: 28 x 18 x 5.5mm.
Note that there could be small differences between the pictures and your PCB. This product is an implementation of this open-source project: http://www.raphnet.net/electronique/wusbmote/index_en.php
