Want that classic Famicom feel without the hassle of having to sit two feet from the console?
Here’s the solution.
It’s an NES controller board and cord in an original Famicom pad shell.
Glorious gold faceplate on rich burgundy plastic. Rounded corners for that premium experience.
All the class, prestige and comfort of the original classic, without the hassle.
Perfect for the discerning Famicom enthusiast’s AV Fami needs.
I do the same with The Super Fami. None of the SNES’ ugly lavender concave button nonsense, but with a much longer controller cord than the Super Fami pad.
Of course, Super Famicom Jr. controller cords are the full length already. But this sucker is staying mint in the box for now.
My ready-to-go Nintendo controller drawer. Sometimes you want Famicom, sometimes you want dogbone, and sometimes you want to rock out gajin style on the squared off NES pad.
That controller is exactly what I need to finish my ROB setup!
Do you sell those? Or do you have tips on how to make one?
The NES controllers don’t fit in a Japanese ROB controller holder.
It’s as simple as putting an NES controller board inside a Famicom Player 1 shell. They are completely compatible, physically.
What may be hard is finding a decent condition Famicom pad, as most are pretty beat up.
What country are you in?
Oh, they don’t require any modification whatsoever? That’s lovely.
I’m in the Netherlands.
That’s a great idea, thanks for posting.
