This 8Bitdo controller is perfect for retro gaming and its currently on sale
Banana yellow is where it’s at.
Let’s face it – retro gaming is always better when you use a gamepad. Using the keyboard or joysticks just feels weird, amirite? Some of the best retro-inspired gamepads come from 8BitDo, like this Bluetooth-enabled, SNES-inspired controller that comes in all the Gameboy Pocket colors.
Now you can play all those 2D games you got when you subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online on your Switch, or those Android games you keep downloading but not playing because virtual controllers are terrible.
More about the 8BitDo gamepad
The Sn30 Bluetooth gamepad is at an all-time low price of $22 on Amazon right now, down from the usual price of $30. (The only proviso is that it’s only the GP Yellow Edition colorway that’s on sale). There are no analog sticks on the controller, so it’s not a jack-of-all-trades controller, but it’s just dandy for playing all those retro 8-bit classics that deserve some gaming love.
Oh, and it’s compatible with your Nintendo Switch (where it shows as a Pro controller), PC, Mac, or Android device.
You could even get the 8Bitdo SNES Bluetooth adapter and add wireless gaming to your original SNES console.
