SNES Classic Controller Extension Cables
The SNES Classic controllers that come with the system are pretty short at just 4.5 feet. When you think about how you will play the SNES Classic, there's a good chance that the couch is farther than that from your TV.
You can buy 6 foot or 10 foot SNES Classic Controller extension cables that allow you to lean back on the couch and play without going big on wireless controllers. The only reasons to skip this is if you plan to get a really long HDMI cable or you plan to play at a desk most of the time.
If you already have NES Classic or Wii U extension cables those should work just fine without the need to buy new ones. These come in a two pack, so you only need to make one purchase to get enough for all your controllers.
Best Buy sells Insignia branded 6 foot cables for $9.99 and you can buy 10 foot extension cables on Amazon for $10.99. You can pick up the Best Buy models in many stores today, but the quantities are limited.
