This Retro GamePad from 8BitDo resembles one of our favorite Retro Gaming controllers, PLUS some additional buttons to cover all your bases. 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!

The Pro version of the SN controller also offers:

  • Rumble Vibration for real feedback during your favorite games
  • Motion Control meaning the way you hold the controller can control your favorite characters
  • Turbo Function sets any button to be a Turbo button and rapidly fire as much as possible!

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
  • Raspberry Pi 3 and Above - Simply pair the controller and use it as expected

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 USB-C 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!

  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

  • My son really wanted one of the mini NES when they were released, however he missed out. I already knew that you could use a raspberry pi as an arcade emulator, so I thought why not build him one.
