A joint effort with Analogue, 8Bitdo’s newest product is clearly aimed for a very specific demographic, however, it doesn’t just end there! For those who grew up during the 8-bit era of the Nintendo Entertainment System aka the birth of mainstream console gaming, you’ll instantly recognize the seven pinned head on the Retro Receiver For NES.
While wireless controllers for the NES already exist, 8Bitdo’s Bluetooth dongle aligns itself with the company’s desire to give gamers more options; not just content with being able to connect all of 8Bitdo controllers to an NES wirelessly, they expanded functionality to allow the use of PS3, PS4, Wii Remote, and even Wii U Pro controllers to the mix! Powered by the NES controller port, this plug and play dongle will let people play all the classics again, especially if heritage controllers have their wires affected by age.
Analogue Nt and 8Bitdo’s collaboration also comes equipped with a built-in CPU and FLASH memory chip with upgradeable firmware, and even offers multiplayer for two to four players. And true to their style, 8Bitdo has made sure that the Retro Receiver also supports Windows and MacOSX (X-INPUT) via the built-in USB port, making emulation gaming another option with the same amount of controller selection. The Retro Receiver also supports third party retro devices as well, so long as they have an NES controller port, making it compatible with the Analogue Nt and aftermarket retro consoles.
A tiny yet powerful device, the Retro Receiver For NES is truly bringing the venerable NES out of nostalgia and towards the contemporary gaming spotlight and is exclusively available at Play-Asia.com.
