    They were only released on the Japanese version of Club Nintendo early this year on their Star Store (buy games collect stars, buy stuff online with those stars) in very limited supply. I played Super Mario World on my Virtual Console earlier and it felt great, all the memories came flooding back

    I have more than 50 games on my Wii VC and quite a few of them are SNES games so I will be certain to make good use of one of them. While keeping the other one minty fresh for collection purposes .

    Most of you guys have never played with a Famicom pad with the original colours I imagine. You instead had those terrible purple tones, along with that ugly looking SNES, lol. What the hell were they thinking with that design and colour scheme?, it still puzzles me to this day. I think it's one of the few times Europe has got 1up from Nintendo on you guys.

    It looks totally rad, but they need to start releasing more SNES games instead of TG-16 and NeoGeo games.

    Will these controllers work with European or American Wii's?

    It would also be really good for Donkey Kong Country 2. I don`t have a classic controller, and playing that game using the GC controller is a pain sometimes.

    Totally. I guess that releasing TG-16 and NeoGeo games aren't bad, but they need to release quality titles on those systems.  But I also think they need to release more games from the NINTENDO systems, seeing as how I'm playing a NINTENDO Wii.

    Well Samurai Showdown 2 (Neo Geo) came out here in Europe last week, you should be getting that soon, you cannot ask for much better that on the Geo.

    "
    True, true. They have been releasing good NeoGeo games, and Samurai Showdown 2 is one of the best on the system. :D

    Woah, those are really nice. You're correct, I am also one of those who have only played with the SNES controller that has the purple toned buttons. Those colored buttons are much nicer looking though. If they retailed this controller for everyone, they could make a really good profit from it, even more money for Nintendo!

    Quoted for truth! A darn shame it is, too. :(
