Emio bringing out an Edge Gamepad, Joystick for the NES Classic Edition

Posted on October 24, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Emio has two new controllers on the way for Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition. While the hardware won’t be ready until next month, an “Edge Gamepad” and “Edge Joystick” are apparently coming tomorrow.

Here’s what the Edge Gamepad offers:

  • The Turbo functions allow repeated button presses by holding the “Turbo” button. The turbo switch activates the turbo function on either A or B.
  • The Turbo function will give an edge over those using a normal controller by increasing button pressing speed significantly.
  • Edge Gamepad comes with a 9′ cable, so you can play your favorite games from almost any spot in your room! You don’t have to worry about pulling the cable and disconnecting in the middle of a game.
  • The Edge Gamepad includes the “B+A” button, making it easier to execute certain moves requiring the player to press both the A button and the B button. Execute “B+A” moves with more accuracy.

And a rundown of the Joystick:

  • Turbo functions allow repeated button presses by holding the “Turbo” button. The Turbo knobs control the speed of the buttons, and the ON/OFF buttons activate the turbo function on A and/or B buttons.
  • Joystick is a digital 8-way input with circular gate. Switch between the ball top and bat top joysticks (incl.). Brings the arcade feel home, and works specially well with games that use 8 directions.
  • A and B are micro switches with higher end and long-lasting material. These buttons are the best choice for any fighting game enthusiast!
  • The Edge Joystick includes “Slow” & “B+A” buttons. “Slow” button gives an edge over a normal controller by making the game go in slow motion. Easily and accurately execute “B+A” moves.
  • Edge Joystick comes with a 9′ cable, so you can play your favorite games from almost any spot in your room! You don’t have to worry about pulling the cable and disconnecting in the middle of a game.

The Edge Gamepad costs $14.99. As for the Joystick, that one is going for $24.99. Both are up on Amazon here and here.

    Basically the NES Advantage lol
    Still cool

    What? No wireless controllers?

  • I had one of those things as a kid; it’s a beast of a controller. It’s pretty cool we are getting these replicas, now give me the running pad haha.

      Me too, though I still thought playing Super Mario Bros was easier to play on the regular controller, but still whipped this out sometimes just because! Couldn’t ignore its novelty, I guess.

    If it were able to press left and right at the same time the adventure if link speed runners would be very happy. Oh well, just A and B.

    I can’t wait for the Power Glove.

      It just has to make a comeback. The technology is finally here for a much more sophisticated Power Glove

      • Reggie

        You’re right actually. And with the NES Classic only having pre-select titles, they could better calibrate the glove.

        Then again, there’s nothing that will ever make the Power Glove comfortable to use, unless it’s Punch Out. Having to hold out your hand the entire time and make the slightest hand twitches isn’t exactly ideal.

      Power Glove? Lame. Uforce is better.

      • Reggie

        You do realize my post was sarcastic, right?

    They had the foresight to lengthen the cord, it’s a bit shocking Nintendo is shipping the mini with one that is 2.5 ft long, regardless of how much better that makes it as a potential Wiimote attachment. I admire the attention to detail above, but they altered the B and A buttons. They were nothing like that, though this should feel more like an arcade stick now. The prices are great, waiting for some reviews.
