Item Description

A joint effort with Analogue NT, 8Bitdo's newest product is clearly aimed at 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 here at Play-Asia.com.

great little adapter
I recommend updating the firmware first. This adapter is great, love looks of it. Plus its very useful as once paired with a controller it remembers it. So if you plug and play; you plug to switch it works, change it to pc the same controller still works (as xinput). No lag issues tested with a WiiU pro controller(actually wakes up console) and dualshock 4(gyro works, so its like a pro controller, doesn't wake up console tough, and touchpad works as capture button).
I don't give it 5 stars only because there's no place to put the cap while in use, so maybe it will get lost.

Everything but...
First off, I'd like to say it works. The red lights are a great indicator of whether or not the controller is plugged in, most of the buttons are mapped respectively. This is where I come to my problems with the adapter. We are down 3 buttons. 2 due to the GameCube controller's design and 1 from the adaptors design. Now losing the select and one of the z buttons isn't a complete loss, but you really appreciate the start button once it's been removed. On the switch, it's now registered as the Home button. I get what they were going for, but now I can't get past the opening cutscene to Blaster Master Zero. On paper, it makes sense to make the start button a home button. However, the start button is very much in a large number of games.
Now it does work with other games on switch fine if you don't need the 3 missing buttons. I think what it's best for is experimenting on other USB compatable devices. There's bound to be creative ways to us the adaptor, but on the switch it feels hindered and that's just because of one button.
If you want to use a GameCube controller on a USB compatable device this is so far the best priced item I've seen on the market.

What I would recommend to make it better? Well I find the Turbo Button unnecessary so if that can be removed in place of a home button that would make the placement all the more fitting. If there is a way to have an extra z and add a select button through the adapter I welcome it, but I'll take the home button idea if Brook will consider it.
