Few people know that 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Famicom system in Japan. To commemorate this occasion 8Bitdo (who are in no way affiliated with Nintendo) has released a bluetooth gamepad that looks a lot like the first player controller from the system that rang in the modern age of console gaming.
