The past week saw the release of two natively supported controllers for iOS devices, potentially ushering in an era of more complex games for Apple’s devices. But older gamers yearning for the halcyon days of their hobby may be more excited about ThinkGeek’s NES controller case for the iPhone 5.

I’m pretty sure it’s not an officially licensed case, despite the presence of Nintendo’s logo. Still, the case not only looks like the classic controller, it also has rubber buttons that you can press to your heart’s content. You can’t use it as an actual controller, although I’m sure a tinkerer could make it so.

You can order the iPhone 5 NES controller case from ThinkGeek for $35 (USD). Get the NES skin for the Apple TV and your fake console is complete.
