You Can Now Get a SEGA Genesis Controller for the Nintendo Switch

Have you ever been playing SEGA Genesis Classics on your Nintendo Switch and thought, "I wish I has a Genesis controller for this?" Dream no longer! The crew over at 8BitDo have created a retro controller that looks and plays almost exactly like a proper SEGA Genesis controller. Technically, it's a remake of the six-button Control Pad they made in 1993, but it still does the job, along with three additional buttons along the bottom to utilize the controls on a Switch console. The M30 Bluetooth Gamepad is a wireless controller that uses the same connection tech as the Pro Controller, so it should sync up to the system in a sinch.
