NES Controller Shell

Retro Modding

While the look of the original NES controller is a now iconic symbol of retro gaming, it might be time to refresh your well-used controller with a modern, and colourful, new shell. If so, this is the product for you!

Our NES controller shells are manufactured in a variety colours, using our in-house mould that was meticulously refined to create a final product that's as close to the OEM shell as we could make it. Add a splash of colour to your NES controller, and pick one up today! Even better, if you're looking to pair this with some equally colourful buttons, our NES style Game Boy buttons work perfectly.

Case works okay for Tetris

I tested it with different boards, original buttons, original silicon and 3rd party silicons. Its a bit looser around the DPAD than the original. Overall I think it works well for most. But I think I need to do more testing and playing to see. I can put up good scores, but I'm not scoring as good as I do on an original controller. So I need to figure out if its just bad luck or if the looseness is actually causing a problem.

Fantastic Shell!

I bought it along with some NES buttons and I love the quality. The shell is nice and smooth and feels great in the hand. All the holes for the screws were in order and made putting the controller together hassle free. It came with a new set of screws which was very appreciated as well. It’s breathed some life into my old controller and I’m very happy with it. When the shipped the shell they didn’t ship the buttons or silicon pads I ordered with the shell, they instead decided to ship the 3 lanyards I purchased which was weird but thankfully the remaining parts needed for my NES Controller showed up the next day. Overall I was very happy with my products and highly recommend Retromodding.

easy install. feels and plays just like an original case. iv yet to rage quit and throw it so idk about durability. it feels as solid as an original case so im optimistic.

Fantastic NES Shell

I really like this shell. I had some spare parts lying around and an NES pcb so I figured why not get this shell and make another controller. Everything fit together great first try. The shell came with new screws so I didn't even need to use 30 year old rusty ones. I got the pink shell and it is very pink. No regrets.
