This Retro GamePad from 8BitDo resembles one of our favorite Retro Gaming controllers, and feels exactly like it. The team over at 8BitDo have put countless hours into the finest details of their Retro Gaming Controllers to deliver an incredibly authetic experience, with the size of the controller, button feedback and even the D-Pad feels right!

Connecting + Compatibility

This controller uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to a range of devices wirelessly. Wireless compatiblity includes:

  • PCs running a Windows (7 and above) OR Mac OS (10.7 and above) - The controller is recognised as either an X-input device with Windows. This means that you can map any of the keyboard buttons to the controller buttons!
  • Android Devices (tablets, phones, and the rest) - The controller acts as a D-input device with Android OS.
  • Nintendo Switch - Swap this controller in for a substitute or extra controller on your Switch

8BitDo stay on top of updates to software with regular firmware updates too, just download them from the 8BitDo Support Page.

Battery + USB Connection

This controller can also connect using a micro-b USB Connection to a device, which comes included in the box. This USB connection also charges the controller's internal battery. The battery is a 480mAh Lithium Polymer battery and takes around 2 hours to fully charge. You'll get up to 18 hours playtime out of that charge too, which is plenty for us!

Additional Information

If you need further information on these controllers (like specifically how they connect, etc), you will get that information in the manual alongside your controller. If it's something else, then get in touch with us - we're here to help!

  • Television Media Centre
  • Introduction: I have a flat screen television that is about 7 years old that I purchased before Smart TVs were commonly available.
