Aussie Bargain Roundup: 8Bitdo Bluetooth Controllers

by Oliver BrandtJuly 4, 2017

8Bitdo’s retro-inspired controllers are a fantastic alternative to Nintendo’s controllers for the Switch — as I said in our first impressions and guide — and there’s a wide variety of online stores to buy from. But it seems like they’re finally going to be available at retail in Australia.

EB Games quietly added some of 8Bitdo’s Bluetooth controllers to their online store earlier today, with a release date of July 30th, so we thought with the controllers presumably coming to brick-and-mortar stores, we’d put together a roundup of all the places you can buy them from.

8Bitdo’s naming scheme can be incredibly confusing, so we’ve also put together a handy visual guide for comparing them:
