8Bitdo is releasing a tiny Switch controller and it is absolutely adorable
Last name Ever, first name Cutest.
The SNES controller may still be one of my favorite controllers to date, and soon I will be able to own a miniature version of one that works on Switch.
The 8Bitdo Zero 2 is just a little baby, as you can see in the picture, and even has a place for a keychain so you can truly have it with you anywhere. The Zero 2 is an update of the original Zero, with upgraded internals, allowing it to work with the Nintendo Switch. It even goes as far as to add motion controls, just like the Joy-Con controllers.
The lack of a joystick means it will not work well with many modern games, but as Nintendo continues to release more classics and old-school titles, the controller definitely has plenty of places it can be used.
Because of the Bluetooth capabilities of the Zero 2, users will have even more use-cases for the controller, as it can be attached to both Windows PCs and Macs. On top of that, you’ll be able to use the tiny controller with mobile Android devices, which have endless emulators available for them.
The 8Bitdo controller will be available in a variety of colors, but we’ll have to wait a bit longer to buy one, it is currently slated for a holiday release.
On a scale of 1-10, how bad do you want this controller?
