Decorate Your Wii U With These Retro Skins

Now you can retrofit (see what I did there?) your Wii U console and the GamePad with an NES skin provided by the fine folks at DecaGirl. The skins retail at $19.99 and look quite sleek and nicely designed for a product that has seemingly become popular within the tablet and smart phone community. Considering the Wii U is designed with a fingerprint-absorbant glossy finish, these NES-inspired skins may have some use to keep our consoles from becoming a gray mess.

Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.


  1. Mmmm. Very cool 🙂

  2. This would look like crap on the basic bundle though, with the white buttons and sticks.

    Also, as someone who had a rubber cover over his Classic Controller for a while and took it off recently to find it COVERED IN STICKY STUFF FROM THE COVER, I feel like this will do the same. Sure, it’s easy to clean, but I’d rather not put adhesive on my smooth controller and console…

  3. Oh, wait. I totally misread. It’s a finished skin and not some stickers like I’ve been seeing…totally take my comment back!

  4. There’s also this design:

    Personally I prefer the first one (pictured in the post).
