Innex/Retro-Bit's Wireless Hypermode Series Controller for NES/SNES/PC-MAC is one of the three such wireless retro gamepads.

Retro video gamers will soon be able to enjoy their eight- and 16-bit fun without the wires as gaming peripheral company Innex announces a full line of wireless controllers that are designed specifically for old-school video game platforms.  Designed by Retro-Bit, not only is each controller wireless, but each is also engineered to allow for turbo-type functionality to be used with their respective platforms.  

"We are extremely fortunate to be the exclusive distributor of the Retro-Bit brand of video game products," states Innex President, Titi Ngoy. "Retro-Bit has played a huge role in rejuvenating public interest in retro games and they continue to develop new and exciting accessories that will further the market demand for nostalgia gaming." 

Known as the Hypermode Series of Controllers, the retro wireless controllers will debut at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, June 11th - June 13th. 

The lineup includes a Wireless Hypermode Series Controller for NES/SNES/PC-MAC (seen above), N64, and Genesis/PC-MAC.  All three work on 2.4GHz frequencies and use a built-in rechargable battery except for the N64 controller, which uses three "AAA" batteries.

The N64 controller is scheduled to release this Summer with the other two releasing in the Fall.  Innex is listing these wireless retro gaming controllers at $29.99 each.
