I’m not exactly thrilled with the ‘Classic Controller’ Nintendo created for the Wii. Sure, all the buttons and analog sticks you need are there, but the design just doesn’t quite capture the feel of the original SNES controller, and doesn’t even come close to the N64’s. But a better solution is on the way. In fact, what could be better than using your old SNES or N64 controllers with the Wii? Come E3 you’ll be able to do just that as Komodo & Innex will be officially announcing their 3-in-1 Retro Adapter.

It connects to your Wii via one of the GameCube ports and allows you to connect either an NES, SNES or N64 controller to be used with Wii Virtual Console titles. And yes, that includes being able to use the N64’s analog stick. At the moment the Retro Adapter has a vague MSRP of around $19.99, and is expected to be available for sale come mid-June.
