Wireless Controller Dongle for NES: Retro Receiver

Analogue Interactive is known for its expensive retro consoles, but it’s reaching out to us common folk with its partnership with 8Bitdo. The companies collaborated to create the Retro Receiver, a Bluetooth dongle that lets you use a variety of controllers with the NES and its derivative systems, including Analogue’s Nt.



The Retro Receiver lets you use a variety of Bluetooth controllers such as the ones 8Bitdo makes, as well as the DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Wii U Pro and Wii Mote. Aside from the NES and its derivatives, the Retro Receiver can also output to the PS3 as well as Windows and Mac computers.

I always get goosebumps when listening to a montage of 8-bit soundtracks. That’s the song of my people. You can pre-order the Retro Receiver from Play-Asia for $20 (USD).
