New Toy: 8BitDo SN30 Pro

8BitDo SN30 Pro

I picked up a new toy for my Nintendo Switch, a Bluetooth wireless “SNES”-esque game controller. It’s fully compatible with all modern Switch games, has ZL + ZR input buttons as well. It’s light weight and feels comfortable in my hands. It’s also perfect for the classic SNES games that were just added to the Switch Online subscription.

There’s something wonderful about playing Super Mario World using a classic SNES controller. It’s also at a better price point than the Switch Pro controller which is $80+ cdn, the SN30 pro is priced at a bit more reasonable $50. It paired very easily and it comes with a charging cable (USB). You can also easily connect it via USB on any computer, this way the firmware stays up to date.

If you’ve been considering picking up a spare controller for your Nintendo Switch. This is definitely worth investing in. I’m very pleased with my purchase.
