Calling all nostalgic gamers from the 20th century! 8Bitdo has made their retro-inspired controllers compatible with Nintendo’s Switch gaming console. The controllers were already connecting to a wide range of platforms via Bluetooth beyond the Switch console including Windows, Android, Mac OS, and Steam. The company released a firmware update for their controllers and the best part is, if you already owned a pair, it’s totally free!
The update makes 8Bitdo one of the few parties of external controllers compatible with Nintendo’s latest gaming console. Even if you weren’t already the proud owner of any of the products from 8Bitdo, they are definitely worth the investment. These old school controllers not only let users relive their childhood, they also allow you to share the fun with your friends who are owners of 8Bitdo controllers through multi-player settings. Now you can sit back and relax while you relive the good ol’ days (without having to blow the dust of your cartridge).
