Judging by most of the comments we get, the number of people lucky enough to get the NES and SNES Classic is going to be very small. But if you do find yourself opening up one of the elusive new micro consoles this Friday and have its older sibling laying around, you may be happy to know that their controllers are interchangeable and compatible with each other, as well as your much more common Wii.

This likewise goes for any extension cords you may have picked up for the NES Classic controller, second only to the Famicom Mini when it comes to inconvenience. Still, it’s good to know that things will work for those who may have missed out on a spare NES controller who still want to preserve the retro feel. It’s important to keep in mind that this won’t suddenly give you more buttons on your NES controllers to accommodate playing with SNES games’ super power.
