Some of us might remember the notoriously short NES Classic Controller cable length of 3 feet (91.5 cm). Rest assured, Nintendo has you covered by increasing the cable length of the SNES Classic Controller to 5 feet (152.4cm).
Nintendo tells me the SNES Classic controller cable is five feet (NES Classic controller was three feet)

The length of 5 Foot-long subways is still short compared to the 6 feet of cable that came with the original but the improvement is still welcomed. You should now be able to sit a little more than half a metre more away from your 60+ inch TV and palm size console.
SNES Classic launches in 29th September 2017. Hardware designs for North America and Europe/Japan differ.
