Nintendo NES Bluetooth Control Pad Adapter ‘Retro Receiver’ Out Now

Retro-Reciever-Nintendo-NES-BluetoothEvery had the urge to plug a more modern control pad into the Nintendo NES? You’re in luck! 8Bitdo and Analogue have partnered up to create the Retro Receiver. This controller adapter simply plugs into Nintendo’s 8-bit console, allowing PlayStation 4 pads, Wii Remotes, arcade sticks and even aftermarket Super Nintendo pads to connect up to the action.

Acting as a plug and play receiver, it’s a simple as slotting the Retro Receiver into the Nintendo NES controller port and then syncing up your joypad of choice. An added bonus to this bluetooth dongle is that it automatically configures additional control pad buttons to be autofire versions of the A and B buttons too.

Set to retail at just $19.99, this all new device is quite the steal for those hoping to ditch the wired approach. It’s fully compatible with 8Bitdo’s earlier bluetooth control pads that mimic the NES and SNES designs, so if anything this seems like the perfect upgrade for anyone wanting a modern edge on their Nintendo NES.

Anyone find success picking one up? In my hunt for a distributor, I finally grabbed a NES30 Pro. Arrived today. Didn't find a link for the actual Retro Receiver on first hunt.
