When you buy a game controller for both comfort and nostalgia, it’s hard to find something that really covers both of the bases, while at the same time not killing your wallet, right? Well, that’s where 8Bitdo comes in. This company has been doing a great job with their small but sufficient peripherals. And this August, it’ll be introducing a new gamepad that’ll channel the old days of the Super Nintendo, while at the same time giving you a contemporary controller to use across a number of devices. And yes, we’re excited for it.
The 8Bitdo Sn30 Pro+ Bluetooth Gamepad (SN Edition), which is available for pre-order here on Amazon,is a great looking controller that’s great for playing both modern and old-school games with a classic feel. It’s got that classic Super Nintendo style design with a blue-whitish body build and light purple buttons, as well as two solid black analog sticks. It also has a comfortable build, making it easy to hold and play games with ease. (There are also other models to choose from as well, in case this color isn’t necessarily your speed.)
In addition, there’s also some software included with the controller. Utilizing it, you can actually customize your controller however you see fit, including changing around the button macros, so you can utilize button presses down to a science. The video below gives you a better demonstration on how to do this.
The controller is really meant for use with devices like PC, Android and Raspberry Pi. But it also works with the Nintendo Switch, making it an ideal controller for a number of your games, both at home and on-the-go. That makes it a perfect controller to pick up for your Nintendo play, once August 7 rolls around. Again, you can pre-order yours here,and get ready for some nostalgic gaming for the very affordable price of just $49.99! Check it out today!
