This NES controller mouse is actually brilliant

It even comes with a side D-pad for web page scrolling

Peripheral-maker 8Bitdo (the same company who made a Switch controller with two d-pads) brings another wacky creation to the table: a NES controller mouse.

8Bitdo's new N30 mouse has a very familiar design. It's literally molded after an old-school NES controller from the 80s, complete with two telltale red buttons for right and mouse click, and a D-pad fastened to the side for PageUp/PageDown web page navigation.

The N30 is wireless and runs on a single AA battery, and sports 1,000 DPI with a 2.4GHz dongle that works from up to 10 meters away. There's also a nifty touch-based scroll slider in the middle in lieu of a scroll wheel.

This strange but ultra-nostalgic mouse is on sale for $24.99. We're not sure how Nintendo feels about this...so if you want one, order it fast.
