The GamePad Pro is designed for the NES Classic system and comes with a wireless dongle that allows for the addition of more controllers (with dongles) for games that support multiplayer. An instant classic, the new GamePad Pro features retro styling and brings it into the modern age with wireless functionality. Enjoy the classic four face button functionality that can be used to play either the NES Classic Edition or Nintendo Wii / Wii U as an optional classic controller (with supported games).
The wireless dongle comes with a power save mode that will shut off after 5 minutes of non-use. After an idle timeout, the dongle will need to be unplugged and reinserted to establish a new connection. The GamePad Pro can also be used with Wii/Wii U when playing classic NES or SNES games (when the dongle is plugged into a Wii/Wii U controller). Note all buttons are NOT needed for all games (i.e. NES games only use 2 buttons while SNES games use 4 buttons plus the shoulder trigger buttons). The dongle has to be plugged directly into the port of a Wii or Wii U controller that is already paired with the Wii or Wii U system (same as Nintendo’s Classic Controller).
Please note the GamePad Pro will NOT work with standard Wii/Wii U games. Shoulder buttons and extra front buttons will only function with games that require and/or use those buttons (i.e. SNES games). If the game does not normally use the extra buttons, they will not function. The ‘Start’ button will only work with those titles that support a ‘Start” button.
Requires 2 x AAA batteries (not included).
