How about a battery powered, Bluetooth gamepad that could fit on your keyring? Well, that's the awesomeness that is the 8Bitdo Zero controller.

Play anywhere, and be ready for anything with the 8Bitdo Zero.

It remembers the connection and, depending on the host device, will automatically connect when it's powered up, so say goodbye to messy wires and get Gaming!

So what's in the box?

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Daryl verified purchaser

    You would think looking at it that this controller was too small and fiddly to use, but it works great, is comfortable to use for hours and fits in a pocket. Recommended. (Posted on 17/01/2018)

  2. Review by Troy verified purchaser


    This is tiny, BUT, still easy to use even for a big guy. I have tried it on my Windows 10 laptop and the bluetooth picked up and worked without any problems. "Joy.cpl" discovered all of the buttons on the pad, but interestinly it doesnt use a "Button 3". Mapped all buttons easily in my test game "Wonderboy III: The Dragons Trap" remake. Played the game for about 65 minutes, with no severe hand cramping, and it didn't go flat. My next trip on the plane is gonna rock! (Posted on 4/01/2018)
