8Bitdo's NES30 arcade stick is worth a look for Switch owners


Pre-orders are up

That lovely-looking NES30 arcade stick from 8Bitdo is up for pre-order ahead of an August 20, 2017 release. It's $80 on Amazon and supports wireless play via Bluetooth, USB, D-Input and X-Input functionality, and easy modding. The company clocks the battery life at 18 hours.

While the stick is aimed at Switch owners, it's also compatible with Windows, Mac, and Android.

What about games? Aside from Ultra Street Fighter II, there's an awful lot of Neo Geo titles coming out that'd make good use of an arcade stick. Just today we got Aero Fighters 2, Gunbarich, and Strikers 1945.

I haven't settled on which 8Bitdo controller I want to get, but I'm leaning toward the SNES pads.
