Iconic SNES Mouse Is Back To Fulfill Your Retro Gaming Needs
Nintendo recently announced that it will release the miniaturized retro version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The SNES Classic Edition follows the footsteps of the NES Classic Edition which took the gaming world by storm late last year.
This time around, the other iconic gaming console will find its way on practically everybody's Christmas wish list for this year as the SNES Classic Edition will be available starting late September. It's not enough, however, to simply get a SNES Classic Edition. To complete the retro gaming experience, a third party hardware and accessory maker is also bringing back the iconic SNES mouse.
Hyperkin is taking advantage of the retro trend and Nintendo's recent announcement of coming up with its own retro version of the SNES mouse which it dubbed as the Hyper-Click Retro Style Mouse for SNES. The resurrected SNES accessory looks and functions exactly like the original. It sports the classic white and purple colors and the button layout. It is also only playable with games that require a mouse, just like with the original. Fortunately, Hyperkin got some pointers from the NES Classic Edition, particularly its cable issues, and made the cord of the retro SNES mouse six feet long.
The only noticeable difference is the absence of the roller ball, which is commonly found in any old computer mouse. The new version of the old school SNES accessory utilizes optical sensors, as reported by The Next Web.
The first ever SNES mouse was sold in 1992 as part of the "Mario Paint" bundle. The original SNES mouse also worked with games such as "Doom," "Eye of the Beholder," "Jurassic Park," "T2: The Arcade Game," and "Wolfenstein 3D." Digital Trends noted that, back in the day, most gamers had to make do with "D-Pads and triggerless gamepads." The SNES mouse allowed players to have "an unprecedented level of control."
The Hyper-Click Retro Style SNES Mouse can be had for $20 and will be available starting July 6. It is available over at the Hyperkin website as well as on Amazon.
