Even 30 years after its release, the NES is still one of the best consoles ever made. The complete NES Bluetooth controller kit pays homage to this classic, featuring a controller and accessories that will elevate the way you game—including on your phone.

Let’s start with the controller, which looks exactly like the original but packs some cutting-edge tech. Don’t let its familiar gray, black, and red design fool you. This lightweight controller is ideal for mobile gaming, made possible with the included Xtander mount.

To get started, just connect the mount to your phone, choose from an impressive range of iOS and Android titles–and go to town. You’ll also get a Retro Receiver that makes your controller compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and PS3.

This controller’s wireless capability enables you to plug into the NES console and play games with unparalleled freedom. The included NES-style USB cable keeps you charged, so you can game well into the night.

The complete NES Bluetooth controller kit usually retails for $59.90, but the Daily Dot Store has it now for $49.99 with free U.S. shipping. International shipping is also available, and the same deal applies on the SNES version of the kit. Buy it here.
