This Fake Famicom Controller Does Everything But Play Video Games

Despite their games being incredibly outdated by today's standards, anyone who grew up in the '80s has a perpetual soft spot for their first video game console, which, depending on where you're from, is either Nintendo's NES or Famicom. So while this card-reading portable charger from Datel isn't particularly outstanding when it comes to features, it doesn't matter, because we're all going to buy one anyways since it's shaped like a classic Nintendo Famicom controller.


The portable charger's 3,600 mAh battery is actually pretty decent, considering the iPhone 6 is only packing 1,800 mAh. And you can either use the controller's built-in microUSB cable for charging your smartphone, or plug its own charger into an included USB port. The pretend controller even has a microSD slot allowing you to move files (old NES ROMs seem most appropriate) on and off the card when connected to your computer. [Amazon Japan via Tiny Cartridge]
